go get -u gorm.io/gorm
go get -u gorm.io/driver/sqlite

Quick Start

package main

import (

type Product struct {
Code string
Price uint

func main() {
db, err := gorm.Open(sqlite.Open("test.db"), &gorm.Config{})
if err != nil {
panic("failed to connect database")

// Migrate the schema

// Create
db.Create(&Product{Code: "D42", Price: 100})

// Read
var product Product
db.First(&product, 1) // find product with integer primary key
db.First(&product, "code = ?", "D42") // find product with code D42

// Update - update product's price to 200
db.Model(&product).Update("Price", 200)
// Update - update multiple fields
db.Model(&product).Updates(Product{Price: 200, Code: "F42"}) // non-zero fields
db.Model(&product).Updates(map[string]interface{}{"Price": 200, "Code": "F42"})

// Delete - delete product
db.Delete(&product, 1)
