ETag

ETag middleware for Fiber that lets caches be more efficient and save bandwidth, as a web server does not need to resend a full response if the content has not changed.

func New(config ...Config) fiber.Handler

Examples

Import the middleware package that is part of the Fiber web framework

import (
"github.com/gofiber/fiber/v2"
"github.com/gofiber/fiber/v2/middleware/etag"
)

After you initiate your Fiber app, you can use the following possibilities:

// Default middleware config
app.Use(etag.New())
// Get / receives Etag: "13-1831710635" in response header
app.Get("/", func(c *fiber.Ctx) error {
return c.SendString("Hello, World!")
})

Config

// Config defines the config for middleware.
type Config struct {
// Next defines a function to skip this middleware when returned true.
//
// Optional. Default: nil
Next func(c *fiber.Ctx) bool
// Weak indicates that a weak validator is used. Weak etags are easy
// to generate, but are far less useful for comparisons. Strong
// validators are ideal for comparisons but can be very difficult
// to generate efficiently. Weak ETag values of two representations
// of the same resources might be semantically equivalent, but not
// byte-for-byte identical. This means weak etags prevent caching
// when byte range requests are used, but strong etags mean range
// requests can still be cached.
Weak bool
}

Default Config

var ConfigDefault = Config{
Next: nil,
Weak: false,
}
