httpexpect is a new Go package for end-to-end HTTP and REST API testing.
It provides convenient chainable helpers for building HTTP request, sending it, and inspecting received HTTP response and its payload.
The key point is that request construction and response assertions become concise and declarative:
// create httpexpect instance e := httpexpect.New(t, "http://example.com") // check that "GET /fruits" returns empty JSON array e.GET("/fruits"). Expect(). Status(http.StatusOK).JSON().Array().Empty()
You can find more examples in the Quick Start.
The first stable branch is released and available on gopkg:
There is a compatibility promise for this branch.
