I want to use the value of key isAuthority in the adapter to make the authorization judgment . how can i do.
for example:

var routeList = routes{
      pattern:     "/article",
      method:      GET,
      HandlerFunc: ctrls.GetAll,
      isAuthority: false,
      pattern: "/article/:id",
      method:  GET,
      isAuthority: false,

router := mux.NewRouter().StrictSlash(true)

for _, item := range routeList {

func adapter(next http.Handler) http.Handler {
return http.HandlerFunc(func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
             //how to get the value of currentRoute'isAuthority

How do you determine “isAuthority” to begin with? Can you explain what the request flow looks like?

You can’t arbitrarily extend a struct, but authenticating admin routes can be done by breaking them out into a subrouter & using middleware to validate a cookie/token.

I want make a rest api server . My idea is to determine if the interface requires authorization verification when defining the routing structure. Use a keyword like "isAuthority" to identify in the routing structure. So in the middleware, I only need to get the value of keyword like "isAuthority" to know if I need to authenticate. now  I use the filed Name to save the value used to judge .
