Is there a way to set a timeout limit for net/http's client.Get()?
Currently I have this much;

func disallowRedirect(req *http.Request, via []*http.Request) error {
return errors.New("Redirection is not allowed.")
}
func somefunction(url string, timeout float64, userAgent string)
client := &http.Client(
         CheckRedirect: disallowRedirect,
     )
     req, err := http.NewRequest("GET", url, nil);
     if err != nil {
         return
     }
     req.Header.add("User-Agent", userAgent);
     client.Do(req)
}

    Yaşar Arabacı if you found the answer to this question please post here,
    I would be really grateful.

    Otherwise, can someone else please help me out here? How do you set the
    timeout of a Get request in golang?

    You can use https://github.com/mreiferson/go-httpclient

    From Readme:

    HttpClient wraps Go's built in HTTP client providing an API to:

    - set timeouts
    - separate connect timeout
    - request based timeout (*not* just read/write deadline)
    - easy access to the connection object for a given request

    Your "timeout float64" should be a time.Duration, not a float64--- is that
    float64 seconds, days, weeks?

    See http://golang.org/pkg/net/http/#Transport and its ResponseHeaderTimeout.

    See http://golang.org/pkg/net/http/#Transport and its ResponseHeaderTimeout.
         For real-world HTTP use with arbitrary sites, you have to have
    timeouts on everything, not just headers. Some sites quickly respond
    with a header, then stall while providing the response body.
    (Some content management systems do this when overloaded.)

         Also, does ResponseHeaderTimeout handle stalls during SSL
    negotiation? (Try "https://soton.ac.uk/". Your browser will
    be stuck for minutes.)

    The other timeouts are under your control.
