Testing your REST api in Go with forest

Go package forest was created to simplify the code needed to write real tests of a REST api. Such tests need to setup Http Requests, send them and inspect Http Responses. The Go standard library has all that is needed to achieve this flow but the required amount of code, especially the error handling, makes tests harder to read and longer to write. Testing github Let’s create a few tests that examine the response of the public github API call.
