How to upload file to internet

With the below code I can download a file from internet asking with monitoring the downloaded percentage.

How can I do something to upload file to internet as well as monitoring the upload progress. I want to upload executable file at github assets

package main

import (


// WriteCounter counts the number of bytes written to it. It implements to the io.Writer interface
// and we can pass this into io.TeeReader() which will report progress on each write cycle.
type WriteCounter struct {
	Total uint64

func (wc *WriteCounter) Write(p []byte) (int, error) {
	n := len(p)
	wc.Total += uint64(n)
	return n, nil

func (wc WriteCounter) PrintProgress() {
	// Clear the line by using a character return to go back to the start and remove
	// the remaining characters by filling it with spaces
	fmt.Printf("\r%s", strings.Repeat(" ", 35))

	// Return again and print current status of download
	// We use the humanize package to print the bytes in a meaningful way (e.g. 10 MB)
	fmt.Printf("\rDownloading... %s complete", humanize.Bytes(wc.Total))

func main() {
	fmt.Println("Download Started")

	fileUrl := ""
	err := DownloadFile("avatar.jpg", fileUrl)
	if err != nil {

	fmt.Println("Download Finished")

// DownloadFile will download a url to a local file. It's efficient because it will
// write as it downloads and not load the whole file into memory. We pass an io.TeeReader
// into Copy() to report progress on the download.
func DownloadFile(filepath string, url string) error {

	// Create the file, but give it a tmp file extension, this means we won't overwrite a
	// file until it's downloaded, but we'll remove the tmp extension once downloaded.
	out, err := os.Create(filepath + ".tmp")
	if err != nil {
		return err

	// Get the data
	resp, err := http.Get(url)
	if err != nil {
		return err
	defer resp.Body.Close()

	// Create our progress reporter and pass it to be used alongside our writer
	counter := &WriteCounter{}
	if _, err = io.Copy(out, io.TeeReader(resp.Body, counter)); err != nil {
		return err

	// The progress use the same line so print a new line once it's finished downloading

	// Close the file without defer so it can happen before Rename()

	if err = os.Rename(filepath+".tmp", filepath); err != nil {
		return err
	return nil

I guess you must use github api for this.
