Golang : How to get username from email address


Tags : golang stringsextract-username email-address

Just need a simple solution to extract the username from a given email address. The code below uses strings.Split() function to split an email address in between the @ symbol and we take the position 0 from the resulting slice to get the username

Here you go!


 package main

 import (
  "fmt"
  "strings"
 )

 func main() {

  username := strings.Split("iamspammer@gmail.com", "@")
  fmt.Printf("%q\n", username[0])
 }

Output:

"iamspammer"

Hope this helps and happy coding!
