Utron Guide

  Edit This Page


utron uses the gorm library as its Object Relational Mapper, so you won't need to learn anything fancy. In our todo app, we need to define a Todo model that will be used to store our todo details.

In the file models/todo.go we define our todo model like this

package models

import (


type Todo struct {
    ID        int       `schema: "-"`
    Body      string    `schema:"body"`
    CreatedAt time.Time `schema:"-"`
    UpdatedAt time.Time `schema:"-"`

func init() {

Notice that we need to register our model by calling utron.RegisterModels(&Todo{}) in the init function otherwise utron won't be aware of the model.

utron will automatically create the table todos if it doesn't exist.

Don't be confused by the schema tag, I just added them since we will use the schema package to decode form values(this has nothing to do with utron, you can use whatever form library you fancy.)
