Gzip

Middleware gzip provides compress to responses for Macaron Instances. Make sure to register it before other middlewares that write content to response.

Installation

go get github.com/go-macaron/gzip

Usage

package main
import (
"github.com/go-macaron/gzip"
"gopkg.in/macaron.v1"
)
func main() {
m := macaron.Classic()
m.Use(gzip.Gziper())
// Register routers.
m.Run()
}

In this case, the static files will not be compressed by Gzip, to compress them:

package main
import (
"github.com/go-macaron/gzip"
"gopkg.in/macaron.v1"
)
func main() {
m := macaron.New()
m.Use(macaron.Logger())
m.Use(macaron.Recovery())
m.Use(gzip.Gziper())
m.Use(macaron.Static("public"))
// Register routers.
m.Run()
}

Or you can choose to only compress a group of routes' responses:

// ...
func main() {
m := macaron.Classic()
m.Group("/gzip", func() {
// ...
}, gzip.Gziper())
// ...
m.Run()
}

Options

This service comes with a variety of configuration options(gzip.Options):

// ...
m.Use(gzip.Gziper(gzip.Options{
// Compression level. Can be DefaultCompression(-1), ConstantCompression(-2)
// or any integer value between BestSpeed(1) and BestCompression(9) inclusive.
// Default is 4.
CompressionLevel: 4,
}))
// ...
