The Goravel routing module can be operated by facades.Route().

HTTP Driver

Goravel uses ginopen in new window as its default HTTP driver. To use other drivers, configure them in the config/http.go file. The official default supports ginopen in new window and fiberopen in new window.

Default Routing File

To define routing files, simply navigate to the /routes directory. By default, the framework utilizes a sample route located in /routes/web.go. To establish routing binding, the func Web() method is registered in the app/providers/route_service_provider.go file.

If you require more precise management, you can add routing files to the /routes directory and register them in the app/providers/route_service_provider.go file.

Start HTTP Server

Start the HTTP server in main.go in the root directory by calling facades.Route().Run(). This will automatically fetch the configuration.

package main

import (


func main() {
  // This bootstraps the framework and gets it ready for use.

  // Start http server by facades.Route().
  go func() {
    if err := facades.Route().Run(); err != nil {
      facades.Log().Errorf("Route run error: %v", err)

  select {}

Start HTTPS Server

Please complete the configuration of http.tls in config/http.go before using HTTPS, the facades.Route().RunTLS() method will start the HTTPS server according to the relevant configuration:

// main.go
if err := facades.Route().RunTLS(); err != nil {
  facades.Log().Errorf("Route run error: %v", err)

You can also use facades.Route().RunTLSWithCert() method to customize the host and certificate.

// main.go
if err := facades.Route().RunTLSWithCert("", "ca.pem", "ca.key"); err != nil {
  facades.Log().Errorf("Route run error: %v", err)

Basic Routing

facades.Route().Get("/", func(ctx http.Context) http.Response {
  return ctx.Response().Json(http.StatusOK, http.Json{
    "Hello": "Goravel",
facades.Route().Post("/", userController.Show)
facades.Route().Put("/", userController.Show)
facades.Route().Delete("/", userController.Show)
facades.Route().Patch("/", userController.Show)
facades.Route().Options("/", userController.Show)
facades.Route().Any("/", userController.Show)

Resource Routing

import ""

resourceController := NewResourceController()
facades.Route().Resource("/resource", resourceController)

type ResourceController struct{}
func NewResourceController () *ResourceController {
  return &ResourceController{}
// GET /resource
func (c *ResourceController) Index(ctx http.Context) {}
// GET /resource/{id}
func (c *ResourceController) Show(ctx http.Context) {}
// POST /resource
func (c *ResourceController) Store(ctx http.Context) {}
// PUT /resource/{id}
func (c *ResourceController) Update(ctx http.Context) {}
// DELETE /resource/{id}
func (c *ResourceController) Destroy(ctx http.Context) {}

Group Routing

facades.Route().Group(func(router route.Router) {
  router.Get("group/{id}", func(ctx http.Context) http.Response {
    return ctx.Response().Success().String(ctx.Request().Query("id", "1"))

Routing Prefix

facades.Route().Prefix("users").Get("/", userController.Show)

File Routing

import "net/http"

facades.Route().Static("static", "./public")
facades.Route().StaticFile("static-file", "./public/logo.png")
facades.Route().StaticFS("static-fs", http.Dir("./public"))

Routing Parameters

facades.Route().Get("/input/{id}", func(ctx http.Context) http.Response {
  return ctx.Response().Success().Json(http.Json{
    "id": ctx.Request().Input("id"),

Detail Request


import ""

facades.Route().Middleware(middleware.Cors()).Get("users", userController.Show)

Fallback Routes

Using the Fallback method, you may define a route that will be executed when no other route matches the incoming request.

facades.Route().Fallback(func(ctx http.Context) http.Response {
  return ctx.Response().String(404, "not found")

Rate Limiting

Defining Rate Limiters

Goravel includes powerful and customizable rate-limiting services that you may utilize to restrict the amount of traffic for a given route or group of routes. To get started, you should define rate limiter configurations that meet your application's needs. Typically, this should be done within the configureRateLimiting method of your application's app/providers/route_service_provider.go class.

Rate limiters are defined using the facades.RateLimiter()'s For method. The For method accepts a rate limiter name and a closure that returns the limit configuration that should apply to routes that are assigned to the rate limiter. The rate limiter name may be any string you wish:

import (
  contractshttp ""

func (receiver *RouteServiceProvider) configureRateLimiting() {
  facades.RateLimiter().For("global", func(ctx contractshttp.Context) contractshttp.Limit {
    return limit.PerMinute(1000)

If the incoming request exceeds the specified rate limit, a response with a 429 HTTP status code will automatically be returned by Goravel. If you would like to define your own response that should be returned by a rate limit, you may use the response method:

facades.RateLimiter().For("global", func(ctx http.Context) http.Limit {
  return limit.PerMinute(1000).Response(func(ctx http.Context) {

Since rate limiter callbacks receive the incoming HTTP request instance, you may build the appropriate rate limit dynamically based on the incoming request or authenticated user:

facades.RateLimiter().For("global", func(ctx contractshttp.Context) contractshttp.Limit {
  // Suppose
  if is_vip() {
    return limit.PerMinute(100)

  return nil

Segmenting Rate Limits

Sometimes you may wish to segment rate limits by some arbitrary value. For example, you may wish to allow users to access a given route 100 times per minute per IP address. To accomplish this, you may use the By method when building your rate limit:

facades.RateLimiter().For("global", func(ctx contractshttp.Context) contractshttp.Limit {
  if is_vip() {
    return limit.PerMinute(100).By(ctx.Request().Ip())

  return nil

To illustrate this feature using another example, we can limit access to the route to 100 times per minute per authenticated user ID or 10 times per minute per IP address for guests:

facades.RateLimiter().For("global", func(ctx contractshttp.Context) contractshttp.Limit {
  if userID != 0 {
    return limit.PerMinute(100).By(userID)

  return limit.PerMinute(10).By(ctx.Request().Ip())

Multiple Rate Limits

If needed, you may return an array of rate limits for a given rate limiter configuration. Each rate limit will be evaluated for the route based on the order they are placed within the array:

facades.RateLimiter().ForWithLimits("login", func(ctx contractshttp.Context) []contractshttp.Limit {
  return []contractshttp.Limit{

Attaching Rate Limiters To Routes

Rate limiters may be attached to routes or route groups using the throttle middleware. The throttle middleware accepts the name of the rate limiter you wish to assign to the route:


facades.Route().Middleware(middleware.Throttle("global")).Get("/", func(ctx http.Context) http.Response {
  return ctx.Response().Json(200, http.Json{
    "Hello": "Goravel",

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

Goravel has CORS enabled by default, the configuration can be modified in config/cors.go.

For more information on CORS and CORS headers, please consult the MDN web documentation on CORSopen in new window.
