Features

Go-toml provides the following features for using data parsed from TOML documents:

  • Load TOML documents from files and string data
  • Easily navigate TOML structure using Tree
  • Mashaling and unmarshaling to and from data structures
  • Line & column position data for all parsed elements
  • [Query support similar to JSON-Path](query/)
  • Syntax errors contain line and column numbers

Import

import "github.com/pelletier/go-toml"

Usage example

Read a TOML document:

config, _ := toml.Load(`
[postgres]
user = "pelletier"
password = "mypassword"`)
// retrieve data directly
user := config.Get("postgres.user").(string)

// or using an intermediate object
postgresConfig := config.Get("postgres").(*toml.Tree)
password := postgresConfig.Get("password").(string)

Or use Unmarshal:

type Postgres struct {
    User     string
    Password string
}
type Config struct {
    Postgres Postgres
}

doc := []byte(`
[Postgres]
User = "pelletier"
Password = "mypassword"`)

config := Config{}
toml.Unmarshal(doc, &config)
fmt.Println("user=", config.Postgres.User)

Or use a query:

// use a query to gather elements without walking the tree
q, _ := query.Compile("$..[user,password]")
results := q.Execute(config)
for ii, item := range results.Values() {
    fmt.Println("Query result %d: %v", ii, item)
}

Documentation

The documentation and additional examples are available at godoc.org.

Tools

Go-toml provides two handy command line tools:

  • tomll: Reads TOML files and lint them.

    go install github.com/pelletier/go-toml/cmd/tomll
    tomll --help
    
  • tomljson: Reads a TOML file and outputs its JSON representation.

    go install github.com/pelletier/go-toml/cmd/tomljson
    tomljson --help
    
    • jsontoml: Reads a JSON file and outputs a TOML representation.
    go install github.com/pelletier/go-toml/cmd/jsontoml
    jsontoml --help
    

Docker image

Those tools are also availble as a Docker image from dockerhub. For example, to use tomljson:

docker run -v $PWD:/workdir pelletier/go-toml tomljson /workdir/example.toml

Only master (latest) and tagged versions are published to dockerhub. You can build your own image as usual:

docker build -t go-toml .
