I've got a Golang Website where I want to display 'scores' from my UWP Game using SQLite's Mobile App Quickstart's API called SwaggerUI. I am getting the scores by doing a HTTP GET request. The problem is that the scores output to the Golang console in JSON Format. I want to display the scores onto the actual website. How could I call my golang function in the Frontend in order to do this? The frontend is written in HTML/Javascript/JQuery.

This is my Golang code:

 func scoresPage(res http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {

//Connecting to SwaggerUI API to get Scores from Azure for UWP Application

req, err := http.NewRequest("GET", os.ExpandEnv("$select=score"), nil)
if err != nil {
//You have to specify these headers
req.Header.Set("Accept", "application/json")
//If you do not specify what version your API is, you cannot receive the JSON
req.Header.Set("Zumo-Api-Version", "2.0.0")

//Do the request
resp, err := http.DefaultClient.Do(req)
//Error if the request cannot be done
if err != nil {

//You need to close the Body everytime, as if you don't you could leak information
defer resp.Body.Close()

//Read all of the information from the body
body, err := ioutil.ReadAll(resp.Body)

//Error if the info cannot be read
if err != nil {

//Write the JSON to the standard output (the Console)
_, err = os.Stdout.Write(body)
//Error if the info cannot be output to the console
if err != nil {

http.ServeFile(res, req, "Scores.html")

func main() { http.HandleFunc("/scores", scoresPage)

//serve on the port 8000 forever
http.ListenAndServe(":8000", nil)

What I have tried:

I've tried using various Javascript methods but none have worked so far.
