Go JWT Authorization in Go Creating, signing, and encoding a JWT token using the HMAC signing method


// Create a new token object, specifying signing method and the claims
// you would like it to contain.
token := jwt.NewWithClaims(jwt.SigningMethodHS256, jwt.MapClaims{
    "foo": "bar",
    "nbf": time.Date(2015, 10, 10, 12, 0, 0, 0, time.UTC).Unix(),

// Sign and get the complete encoded token as a string using the secret
tokenString, err := token.SignedString(hmacSampleSecret)

fmt.Println(tokenString, err)
