How to do it…

  1. Install the gopkg.in/mgo.v2 and github.com/gorilla/mux packages, using the go get command, as follows:
$ go get gopkg.in/mgo.v2$ go get github.com/gorilla/mux
  1. Create create-record-mongodb.go. Then we connect to the MongoDB database, create an employee document with two fields—ID and name—and write the last created document ID to an HTTP response stream, as follows:
package mainimport (  "fmt"  "log"  "net/http"  "strconv"  "github.com/gorilla/mux"  mgo "gopkg.in/mgo.v2")const (  CONN_HOST = "localhost"  CONN_PORT = "8080"  MONGO_DB_URL = "127.0.0.1")var session *mgo.Sessionvar connectionError errortype Employee struct {  Id int `json:"uid"`  Name string `json:"name"`}func init() {  session, connectionError = mgo.Dial(MONGO_DB_URL)
