Route Parameters

Router can recognize two forms of parameters, one is named parameter, the other one is wildcard parameter.

Named Parameter

router.Get("/posts/:year/:month/:title", func(c *clevergo.Context) error {
	return c.String(http.StatusOK, fmt.Sprintf("title %s, year: %s, month: %s",

As you can see, :name is a named parameter. It’s values can be retrieved via Context.Params.

Named parameters match only one single path segment.

Pattern: /hello/:name

/hello/foo              matched
/hello/bar              matched
/hello/foo/bar          unmatched

Wildcard Parameter

The other parameter form is wildcard parameter which have the form *name. Like the name suggests, they match everything. Therefore, they must always be at the end of the pattern.

router.Get("/static/*filepath", func(c *clevergo.Context) error {
	return c.String(http.StatusOK, fmt.Sprintf("filepath: %s", c.Params.String("filepath")))
/static/                    match
/static/css/app.css         match
/static/js/app.js           match

Retrieve Parameters

All parameters are stored in Context.Params.

func params(c *clevergo.Context) error {
	name := c.Params.String("name")
	page, err := c.Params.Int("page")
	num, err := c.Params.Int64("num")
	amount, err := c.Params.Uint64("amount")
	enable, err := c.Params.Bool("enable")
	price, err := c.Params.Float64("price")
	return err

Raw Path

Router.UseRawPath allows matching parameters that contains escaped slash %2f.
