./app

Folder with business logic only. This directory doesn't care about what database driver you're using or which caching solution your choose or any third-party things.

  • ./app/controllers folder for functional controllers (used in routes)
  • ./app/models folder for describe business models and methods of your project
  • ./app/queries folder for describe queries for models of your project
  • ./app/validators folder for describe validators for models fields

./docs

Folder with API Documentation. This directory contains config files for auto-generated API Docs by Swagger.

./pkg

Folder with project-specific functionality. This directory contains all the project-specific code tailored only for your business use case, like configs, middleware, routes or utils.

  • ./pkg/configs folder for configuration functions
  • ./pkg/middleware folder for add middleware (Fiber built-in and yours)
  • ./pkg/repository folder for describe const of your project
  • ./pkg/routes folder for describe routes of your project
  • ./pkg/utils folder with utility functions (server starter, error checker, etc)

./platform

Folder with platform-level logic. This directory contains all the platform-level logic that will build up the actual project, like setting up the database or cache server instance and storing migrations.

  • ./platform/database folder with database setup functions (by default, PostgreSQL)
  • ./platform/migrations folder with migration files (used with golang-migrate/migrate tool)
