Package xff is a net/http middleware/handler to parse Forwarded HTTP Extension in Golang.

Example usage

Install xff:

go get github.com/sebest/xff

Edit server.go:

package main

import (
  "net/http"

  "github.com/sebest/xff"
)

func main() {
  handler := http.HandlerFunc(func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
    w.Write([]byte("hello from " + r.RemoteAddr + "\n"))
  })

  xffmw, _ := xff.Default()
  http.ListenAndServe(":8080", xffmw.Handler(handler))
}

Then run your server:

go run server.go

The server now runs on localhost:8080:
