Parse JSON array in Golang

Simple question: how to parse a string (which is an array) in Go using json package?

type JsonType struct{
    Array []string

func main(){
    dataJson = `["1","2","3"]`
    arr := JsonType{}
    unmarshaled := json.Unmarshal([]byte(dataJson), &arr.Array)
    log.Printf("Unmarshaled: %v", unmarshaled)

The return value of Unmarshal is an err, and this is what you are printing out:

// Return value type of Unmarshal is error.
err := json.Unmarshal([]byte(dataJson), &arr)

You can get rid of the JsonType as well and just use a slice:

package main

import (

func main() {
    dataJson := `["1","2","3"]`
    var arr []string
    _ = json.Unmarshal([]byte(dataJson), &arr)
    log.Printf("Unmarshaled: %v", arr)

// prints out:
// 2009/11/10 23:00:00 Unmarshaled: [1 2 3]
