Golang URL Params

To create URL encoded parameters on a URL in Go.

// example from a Zulip webhook
params := url.Values{}
params.Add("to", "stream-name")
params.Add("topic", "topic")
params.Add("type", "stream")
params.Add("content", "here is the content")
encoded := params.Encode()

u := fmt.Sprintf("https://example.com?%s",encoded)


This will create the URL as var u with all the parameters correctly encoded. This could then be used in http.NewRequest like so:

// skip err handling for brevity
req, _ := http.NewRequest("POST", u, nil)
