Buffalo

A Go web development eco-system, designed to make the life of a Go web developer easier.

Latest release: 0.10.1
Requires Go 1.8.1+



Main Features

Routing

Buffalo uses Gorilla toolkit to manage routes, sessions, cookies... There might be faster routers out there, but this one is definitely the most powerful!

Templating

Write your templates with Plush, using a Rails-like syntax. Extend its features using custom helpers.
If you don't like it, you can use html/template or even bring your own!

Buffalo toolbox

Writing a web application module always begins with the same tasks. Buffalo provides you a simple toolbox, the buffalo command, to generate many parts of your app and run usual tasks.

You can even extend the toolbox with plugins, using the language you want!

Testing

Since testing can be a boring task, Buffalo helps you to define test suites. Action, resource, model Generators create test templates for the code you just generated.

You can run them all using a simple command from the toolbox.

Hot Code Reload

Code, save, refresh. Use the buffalo dev command to rebuild your app, from backend to frontend, and just see the changes live!

Frontend pipeline Optional

Use the Webpack-generated configuration to build your frontend assets, so you can optimize both backend and frontend.

Models / ORM Optional

Deep integration with pop provides a simple way to handle database and common related tasks.

Supported databases: MySQL/ MariaDB, PostgreSQL, SQLite.

Tasks / Background Workers Optional

If you're familiar with Rake tasks from Ruby, you'll be right at home using Grift. Seeding a database, running a cleaning job are now at hand!

Running background tasks are easy too, using the Background Workers.
