Publish with Go-lang

Use the following code snippet to publish a message on a WebSocket channel with Go.

package main
import (

func main() {
  url := "https://www.piesocket.com/api/publish"
  method := "POST"

  //Demo secret and key, get yours at piesocket.com
  payload := strings.NewReader("{\n    \"key\": \"oCdCMcMPQpbvNjUIzqtvF1d2X2okWpDQj4AwARJuAgtjhzKxVEjQU6IdCjwm\",\n    \"secret\": \"d8129f82f8dd71910aa4a7efa30a7297\",\n    \"channelId\": 1,\n    \"message\": \"Hello world!\"\n}")

  client := &http.Client {
  req, err := http.NewRequest(method, url, payload)

  if err != nil {
  req.Header.Add("Content-Type", "application/json")

  res, err := client.Do(req)
  defer res.Body.Close()
  body, err := ioutil.ReadAll(res.Body)


This sends a JSON message to channel 1.

Please note that this example uses a demo key and secret, which is public. The demo key is only for quick testing purposes, and you should not use this in your application.
