Today, I will show you how do I convert string to binary in golang, as above mentioned I’m going to use fmt.Sprintf() way.

The fmt package provide fmt.Sprintf() method.

Let’s start our Golang convert string to binary example

Convert whole string into binary example

main.go

package main
import "fmt"

func strToBin(s string) (binString string) {
    for _, c := range s {
        binString = fmt.Sprintf("%s%b",binString, c)
    }
    return 
}

func main() {
  s := "aguidehub"
  res := strToBin(s)
	fmt.Printf(res)
}

In the above example, we have converted string to binary and printed in golang console. let’s check the output.
