📦 Fiber

Fiber represents the fiber package where you start to create an instance.

New

This method creates a new App named instance. You can pass optional settings when creating a new instance.

Signature
func New(config ...Config) *App
Example
// Default config
app := fiber.New()
// ...

Config

You can pass an optional Config when creating a new Fiber instance.

Example
// Custom config
app := fiber.New(fiber.Config{
Prefork: true,
CaseSensitive: true,
StrictRouting: true,
ServerHeader: "Fiber",
})
// ...

Property

Type

Description

Default

Prefork

bool

Enables use of theSO_REUSEPORTsocket option. This will spawn multiple Go processes listening on the same port. learn more about socket sharding.

false

ServerHeader

string

Enables the Server HTTP header with the given value.

""

StrictRouting

bool

When enabled, the router treats /foo and /foo/ as different. Otherwise, the router treats /foo and /foo/ as the same.

false

CaseSensitive

bool

When enabled, /Foo and /foo are different routes. When disabled, /Fooand /foo are treated the same.

false

Immutable

bool

When enabled, all values returned by context methods are immutable. By default, they are valid until you return from the handler; see issue #185.

false

UnescapePath

bool

Converts all encoded characters in the route back before setting the path for the context, so that the routing can also work with URL encoded special characters

false

ETag

bool

Enable or disable ETag header generation, since both weak and strong etags are generated using the same hashing method (CRC-32). Weak ETags are the default when enabled.

false

BodyLimit

int

Sets the maximum allowed size for a request body, if the size exceeds the configured limit, it sends 413 - Request Entity Too Large response.

4 * 1024 * 1024

Concurrency

int

Maximum number of concurrent connections.

256 * 1024

Views

Views

Views is the interface that wraps the Render function. See our Template Middleware for supported engines.

nil

ReadTimeout

time.Duration

The amount of time allowed to read the full request, including the body. The default timeout is unlimited.

nil

WriteTimeout

time.Duration

The maximum duration before timing out writes of the response. The default timeout is unlimited.

nil

IdleTimeout

time.Duration

The maximum amount of time to wait for the next request when keep-alive is enabled. If IdleTimeout is zero, the value of ReadTimeout is used.

nil

ReadBufferSize

int

per-connection buffer size for requests' reading. This also limits the maximum header size. Increase this buffer if your clients send multi-KB RequestURIs and/or multi-KB headers (for example, BIG cookies).

4096

WriteBufferSize

int

Per-connection buffer size for responses' writing.

4096

CompressedFileSuffix

string

Adds a suffix to the original file name and tries saving the resulting compressed file under the new file name.

".fiber.gz"

ProxyHeader

string

This will enable c.IP() to return the value of the given header key. By default c.IP()will return the Remote IP from the TCP connection, this property can be useful if you are behind a load balancer e.g. X-Forwarded-*.

""

GETOnly

bool

Rejects all non-GET requests if set to true. This option is useful as anti-DoS protection for servers accepting only GET requests. The request size is limited by ReadBufferSize if GETOnly is set.

false

ErrorHandler

ErrorHandler

ErrorHandler is executed when an error is returned from fiber.Handler.

DefaultErrorHandler

DisableKeepalive

bool

Disable keep-alive connections, the server will close incoming connections after sending the first response to the client

false

DisableDefaultDate

bool

When set to true causes the default date header to be excluded from the response.

false

DisableDefaultContentType

bool

When set to true, causes the default Content-Type header to be excluded from the Response.

false

DisableHeaderNormalizing

bool

By default all header names are normalized: conteNT-tYPE -> Content-Type

false

DisableStartupMessage

bool

When set to true, it will not print out debug information

false

NewError

NewError creates a new HTTPError instance with an optional message.

Signature
func NewError(code int, message ...string) *Error
Example
app.Get(func(c *fiber.Ctx) error {
return fiber.NewError(782, "Custom error message")
})

IsChild

IsChild determines if the current process is a result of Prefork.

Signature
func IsChild() bool
Example
// Prefork will spawn child processes
app := fiber.New(fiber.Config{
Prefork: true,
})
if !fiber.IsChild() {
fmt.Println("I'm the parent process")
} else {
fmt.Println("I'm a child process")
}
// ...
