ResolveFile searches for the existence of a file from a fuzzy URL path.
`path` is a request path like "/about"
This function would return e.g. "about.gohtml" as being a file path that is
sure to return data in GetFile().
Path finding rules follow expected behavior from dominant web servers:
- If the exact path is found, return it immediately.
- Try assuming a ".gohtml" or ".md" file extension for the path.
- Try checking if the path is a directory with an "index.gohtml" inside it, etc.
func ResolveFile(path string) (string, error) {
// Ensure the path doesn't begin with a slash.
path = strings.TrimLeft(path, "/")
// Try the exact path.
if GetFileExists(path) {
return path, nil
// Try fuzzy file matches.
var tries = []string{
path + ".gohtml",
path + ".md",
path + "/index.gohtml",
path + "/index.html",
for _, try := range tries {
path = strings.TrimLeft(try, "/")
if GetFileExists(path) {
return path, nil
return "", errors.New("not found")
