Go - Convert JSON to Struct

In this source code example, we show how to convert JSON to Struct in Golang :


package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "log"
)

type Employee struct {
    Id         int
    FirstName       string
    LastName string
	Email string
}

func main() {

    var e1 Employee

    data := []byte(`{"Id": 1, "FirstName": "John", "LastName": "Cena", "Email" : "john@gmail.com"}`)

    err := json.Unmarshal(data, &e1)

    if err != nil {

        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    fmt.Println("Struct is:", e1)
    fmt.Println("FirstName: ", e1.FirstName)
    fmt.Println("LastName: ", e1.LastName)
    fmt.Println("Email: ", e1.Email)
}

Output:

Struct is: {1 John Cena john@gmail.com}
FirstName:  John
LastName:  Cena
Email:  john@gmail.com
