### Features
- Uses the fastest router: Julien Schmidt's [httprouter](https://github.com/julienschmidt/httprouter)
- Uses gofrs [uuid](https://github.com/gofrs/uuid) package to guarantee unique request ids
- Uses MrZ's [go-logger](https://github.com/mrz1836/go-logger) for either local or remote logging via [Log Entries (Rapid7)](https://www.rapid7.com/products/insightops/)
- Uses MrZ's [go-parameters](https://github.com/mrz1836/go-parameters) for parsing any type of incoming parameter with ease
- Added basic middleware support from Rileyr's [middleware](https://github.com/rileyr/middleware)
- Added additional CORS functionality
- Standardized error responses for API requests
- Centralized logging on all requests (requesting user info & request time)
- Custom response writer for Etag and cache support
- `GetClientIPAddress()` safely detects IP addresses behind load balancers
- `GetParams()` parses parameters only once
- `FilterMap()` removes any confidential parameters from logs
- ...and more!
