Here is our second part of the Golang for Web series. In this article, we will see how we can add database to our app to store our todos.
Before that if you didn't follow the first part of this series, check that here.

If you've done that, let's dive into our code.

What will we build? ๐Ÿค”

We will continue our Todo application from our first part of this series. Here we will add Mongo DB as our database to store our todos.

Prerequisites ๐Ÿ“

  • A basic knowledge of Golang syntax.
  • Go version 1.14 or above installed on your machine. Install from here
  • Postman or any other related app installed on your machine. Download Postman
  • Part-I of this project. Clone the project from here

If you have these, Let's get started ๐Ÿš€

Let's Begin

Letโ€™s Begin ๐Ÿ

1. Setup our Project

First, Let's open our previous project in our VS Code (or any other Code Editor/ IDE).

Now, run the below command to install all the dependencies.

go get
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Let's install mongo-driver for Mongo DB and godotenv to manage environment variables.

go get -u go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver github.com/joho/godotenv
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now, create models, config directories, and .env file in our root directory.

Our root directory will look like this:

.
|____config
|____controllers
| |____todo.go
|____models
|____routes
| |____todo.go
|____.env
|____go.mod
|____go.sum
|____main.go
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2. Setup Mongo DB

Let's create an account at https://www.mongodb.com/ or you can sign in to your existing account.

Now create a new project, named gofiber-todo-api (or anything you want) and build a cluster.

Wait some time, while mongo db is creating a cluster for you.

Waiting

Now click on connect
Then, add a database user and choose Allow Acess from Anywhere under Add a connection IP address and click on Add IP Address
Add IP Address

Then choose Connect your application under connection method. Choose Go from the driver dropdown and 1.4 or later from the version dropdown.

Connection

Now copy that connection string. and paste it in .env file like below.

MONGO_URI=mongodb+srv://<dbUser>:<password>@cluster0.oynlp.mongodb.net/<dbname>?retryWrites=true&w=majority
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here replace <dbUser> with your database username, <password> with your user password, and <dbname> with a database name.

Additionally, add another two variables in .env file as below.

DATABASE_NAME=<dbname>
TODO_COLLECTION=todos
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here DATABASE_NAME is same as <dbname> in the MONGO_URI.

3. Configure Mongo DB

Let's create a db.go file inside config directory.

Now declare the package and import our required imports as below.

config/db.go will look like :

package config

import (
    "context"
    "log"
    "os"
    "time"

    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo"
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo/options"
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo/readpref"
)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then add MongoInstance as below.

// MongoInstance : MongoInstance Struct
type MongoInstance struct {
    Client *mongo.Client
    DB     *mongo.Database
}

// MI : An instance of MongoInstance Struct
var MI MongoInstance
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

config/db.go will look like :

package config

import (
    "context"
    "fmt"
    "log"
    "os"
    "time"

    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo"
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo/options"
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo/readpref"
)

// MongoInstance : MongoInstance Struct
type MongoInstance struct {
    Client *mongo.Client
    DB     *mongo.Database
}

// MI : An instance of MongoInstance Struct
var MI MongoInstance
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now let's create a ConnectDB() method with all the connection configuration.

// ConnectDB - database connection
func ConnectDB() {
    client, err := mongo.NewClient(options.Client().ApplyURI(os.Getenv("MONGO_URI")))
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    ctx, cancel := context.WithTimeout(context.Background(), 10*time.Second)
    defer cancel()

    err = client.Connect(ctx)
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    err = client.Ping(ctx, readpref.Primary())
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    fmt.Println("Database connected!")

    MI = MongoInstance{
        Client: client,
        DB:     client.Database(os.Getenv("DATABASE_NAME")),
    }
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Let's go to main.go and import the following packages

import (
    "log" // new

    "github.com/devsmranjan/golang-fiber-basic-todo-app/config" // new
    "github.com/devsmranjan/golang-fiber-basic-todo-app/routes"
    "github.com/gofiber/fiber/v2"
    "github.com/gofiber/fiber/v2/middleware/logger"
    "github.com/joho/godotenv" // new
)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Inside the main() initiate dotenv like below.

// dotenv
err := godotenv.Load()
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal("Error loading .env file")
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and call the db configuration method ConnectDB()

// config db
config.ConnectDB()
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now our main() will look like :

func main() {
    app := fiber.New()
    app.Use(logger.New())

    // dotenv
    err := godotenv.Load()
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal("Error loading .env file")
    }

    // config db
    config.ConnectDB()

    // setup routes
    setupRoutes(app)

    // Listen on server 8000 and catch error if any
    err = app.Listen(":8000")

    // handle error
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now let's run our app

go run main.go
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You will get output like below

Database connected!

 โ”Œโ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

It means our database successfully connected.

Additional: To reload the server automatically, you can install air globally in your machine.

Now to run our app, in your root directory run

air
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

or for debug mode, you can run

air -d
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

4. Create Model

Now create a file named todo.go inside models directory.
And create our Todo like below

package models

import (
    "time"
)

// Todo - todo model
type Todo struct {
    ID        *string   `json:"id,omitempty" bson:"_id,omitempty"`
    Title     *string   `json:"title"`
    Completed *bool     `json:"completed"`
    CreatedAt time.Time `json:"createdAt"`
    UpdatedAt time.Time `json:"updatedAt"`
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

5. Connect Database with Controllers

Now go to controllers/todo.go and remove the following code first.

- // Todo : todo model
- type Todo struct {
-   ID        int    `json:"id"`
-   Title     string `json:"title"`
-   Completed bool   `json:"completed"`
- }
-
- var todos = []*Todo{
-   {
-       ID:        1,
-       Title:     "Walk the dog ๐Ÿฆฎ",
-       Completed: false,
-   },
-   {
-       ID:        2,
-       Title:     "Walk the cat ๐Ÿˆ",
-       Completed: false,
-   },
- }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And let's import required packages

import (
    "os" // new
    "strconv"

    "github.com/devsmranjan/golang-fiber-basic-todo-app/config" // new
    "github.com/devsmranjan/golang-fiber-basic-todo-app/models" // new
    "github.com/gofiber/fiber/v2"
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/bson" // new
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/bson/primitive" // new
    "go.mongodb.org/mongo-driver/mongo" // new
)

5.1 - GetTodos()

+   todoCollection := config.MI.DB.Collection(os.Getenv("TODO_COLLECTION"))
+
+   // Query to filter
+   query := bson.D{{}}
+
+   cursor, err := todoCollection.Find(c.Context(), query)
+
+   if err != nil {

        })
    }

    var todos []models.Todo = make([]models.Todo, 0)

    // iterate the cursor and decode each item into a Todo
    err = cursor.All(c.Context(), &todos)
    if err != nil {
        return c.Status(fiber.StatusInternalServerError).JSON(fiber.Map{
            "success": false,

Now DeleteTodo() will look like:

// DeleteTodo : Delete a todo
// PARAM: id
func DeleteTodo(c *fiber.Ctx) error {
    todoCollection := config.MI.DB.Collection(os.Getenv("TODO_COLLECTION"))

    // get param
    paramID := c.Params("id")

    // convert parameter to object id
    id, err := primitive.ObjectIDFromHex(paramID)

    // if parameter cannot parse
    if err != nil {
        return c.Status(fiber.StatusBadRequest).JSON(fiber.Map{
            "success": false,
            "message": "Cannot parse id",
            "error":   err,
        })
    }

    // find and delete todo
    query := bson.D{{Key: "_id", Value: id}}

    err = todoCollection.FindOneAndDelete(c.Context(), query).Err()

    if err != nil {
        if err == mongo.ErrNoDocuments {
            return c.Status(fiber.StatusNotFound).JSON(fiber.Map{

Awesome !!! We did great so far. ๐Ÿค

6. Test our endpoints ๐Ÿงช

Let's test our API in Postman. Before that don't forget to run the server.

To get all Todos, give a GET request to localhost:8000/api/todos

Get all todos

To create a new todo, give a POST request to localhost:8000/api/todos with a title: <String> in the request body.

New Todo

Now, you can add more todos like:

  • Play Cricket ๐Ÿ
  • Watch WandaVision ๐Ÿฟ

Let's get all our todos again.
All todos

Yaaahooooo! Isn't this amazing? ๐Ÿคฉ

Yes

Now, to get todo by id, give a GET request to localhost:8000/api/todos/:id
Here replace :id with a todo id.

Get single todo

Now, let's update a todo by giving a PUT request to localhost:8000/api/todos/:id with a title: <String> or completed: <Boolean> or both in the request body.
Here replace :id with a todo id.

Update todo

To delete a todo, give a DELETE request to localhost:8000/api/todos/:id
Here replace :id with a todo id.

Delete Todo

Congratulations ๐Ÿฅณ ๐Ÿฅณ ๐Ÿฅณ We did it ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Woohoo!
