Golang : Get uploaded file name or access uploaded files

Tags : filename golang form-file upload

A regular community member of Golang Facebook group asked a question recently on how to capture the uploaded filename in a single method. Below is the quick way of getting the filename:


You can use this method as well to access uploaded files information. Such as the MIME or metadata information.

 func uploadHandler(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
 file, header, err := r.FormFile("file") // the input file by form
 defer file.Close()

 if err != nil {
 fmt.Fprintln(w, err)

 filename := header.Filename // get the filename
 fmt.Fprintf(w,"Filename is" + filename + "\n")
