$ go get github.com/gorilla/mux

package mainimport (  "encoding/json"  "log"  "net/http"  "github.com/gorilla/mux")const (  CONN_HOST = "localhost"  CONN_PORT = "8080")type Route struct {  Name string  Method string  Pattern string  HandlerFunc http.HandlerFunc}type Routes []Routevar routes = Routes{  Route  {    "getEmployees",    "GET",    "/employees",    getEmployees,  },  Route  {    "addEmployee",    "POST",    "/employee/add",
