How to make go decoding/unmarshalling api set zero value instead of returning error?

Suppose, i have a struct with field of int. If i send a json string from client side to server and if this filed contains some characters instread of digits, go causes an error while decoding/unmarshalling json string. so how to make go set zero value instead of causing an error.

Struct Example:

type Form struct {
    Age int

Json string:

{"Age": "23abc"}

Can you give an example how such invalid JSON looks like?

Two options that come to mind are json.Number (which is essentially a string) and a custom unmarshaller:


Cool. Thank you.
