Compare if Slices Are Equal in Golang (Struct, Map, Interface, …)

The simplest way to check if two structs are equal is using the DeepEqual method from the reflect package:

func DeepEqual(x, y interface{}) bool

See this example which shows the order of the slice is important in comparison:

package main

import (

type UserIDs struct {
	IDs []int

func main() {

	mortezaIDs := UserIDs{
		IDs: []int{1, 2, 3},

	jackIDs := UserIDs{
		IDs: []int{1, 3, 2},

	areEqual := reflect.DeepEqual(mortezaIDs, jackIDs)
