Examples in Go
Go offers built-in support for JSON encoding and decoding, including to and from built-in and custom data types.
package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "os"
)

type response1 struct {
    Page   int
    Fruits []string
}

type response2 struct {
    Page   int      `json:"page"`
    Fruits []string `json:"fruits"`
}

func main() {

    bolB, _ := json.Marshal(true)
    fmt.Println(string(bolB))

    intB, _ := json.Marshal(1)
    fmt.Println(string(intB))

    fltB, _ := json.Marshal(2.34)
    fmt.Println(string(fltB))

    strB, _ := json.Marshal("gopher")
    fmt.Println(string(strB))

    slcD := []string{"apple", "peach", "pear"}
    slcB, _ := json.Marshal(slcD)
    fmt.Println(string(slcB))

    mapD := map[string]int{"apple": 5, "lettuce": 7}
    mapB, _ := json.Marshal(mapD)
    fmt.Println(string(mapB))

    res1D := &response1{
        Page:   1,
        Fruits: []string{"apple", "peach", "pear"}}
    res1B, _ := json.Marshal(res1D)
    fmt.Println(string(res1B))

    res2D := &response2{
        Page:   1,
        Fruits: []string{"apple", "peach", "pear"}}
    res2B, _ := json.Marshal(res2D)
    fmt.Println(string(res2B))

    byt := []byte(`{"num":6.13,"strs":["a","b"]}`)

    var dat map[string]interface{}

    if err := json.Unmarshal(byt, &dat); err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Println(dat)

    num := dat["num"].(float64)
    fmt.Println(num)

    strs := dat["strs"].([]interface{})
    str1 := strs[0].(string)
    fmt.Println(str1)

    str := `{"page": 1, "fruits": ["apple", "peach"]}`
    res := response2{}
    json.Unmarshal([]byte(str), &res)
    fmt.Println(res)
    fmt.Println(res.Fruits[0])

    enc := json.NewEncoder(os.Stdout)
    d := map[string]int{"apple": 5, "lettuce": 7}
    enc.Encode(d)
}
Go offers built-in support for XML and XML-like formats with the encoding.xml package.
package main

import (
    "encoding/xml"
    "fmt"
)

type Plant struct {
    XMLName xml.Name `xml:"plant"`
    Id      int      `xml:"id,attr"`
    Name    string   `xml:"name"`
    Origin  []string `xml:"origin"`
}

func (p Plant) String() string {
    return fmt.Sprintf("Plant id=%v, name=%v, origin=%v",
        p.Id, p.Name, p.Origin)
}

func main() {
    coffee := &Plant{Id: 27, Name: "Coffee"}
    coffee.Origin = []string{"Ethiopia", "Brazil"}

    out, _ := xml.MarshalIndent(coffee, " ", "  ")
    fmt.Println(string(out))

    fmt.Println(xml.Header + string(out))

    var p Plant
    if err := xml.Unmarshal(out, &p); err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }
    fmt.Println(p)

    tomato := &Plant{Id: 81, Name: "Tomato"}
    tomato.Origin = []string{"Mexico", "California"}

    type Nesting struct {
        XMLName xml.Name `xml:"nesting"`
        Plants  []*Plant `xml:"parent>child>plant"`
    }

    nesting := &Nesting{}
    nesting.Plants = []*Plant{coffee, tomato}

    out, _ = xml.MarshalIndent(nesting, " ", "  ")
    fmt.Println(string(out))
}
Go provides built-in support for base64 encoding/decoding.
package main

import (
    b64 "encoding/base64"
    "fmt"
)

func main() {

    data := "abc123!?$*&()'-=@~"

    sEnc := b64.StdEncoding.EncodeToString([]byte(data))
    fmt.Println(sEnc)

    sDec, _ := b64.StdEncoding.DecodeString(sEnc)
    fmt.Println(string(sDec))
    fmt.Println()

    uEnc := b64.URLEncoding.EncodeToString([]byte(data))
    fmt.Println(uEnc)
    uDec, _ := b64.URLEncoding.DecodeString(uEnc)
    fmt.Println(string(uDec))
}
