📅 May 31, 2020 • 🕣 1 min read

Splitting strings in Go is done by using the Split() method. You need to import the strings standard library to use this.

Demo

package main 

import (
	"fmt"
	"strings"
)

func main(){
	var date string = "1999-03-12"
	date_array = strings.Split(date, "-")

	fmt.Println(date_array)
}

The split() return a Go Array, running this program should print the following:

[1999 03 12]
