Expand description

Length aware paginator enables you to paginate Diesel queries and have information about the length of data being paginated. It will give you total number of items, and last page that you can navigate to and still get some kind of data.

You will only have to provide page and per_page parameters.

/// *panics* if no DATABASE_URL is defined in the env or if the db is unreachable

    let database_url =
        dotenv::var("DATABASE_URL").expect("You have to provide DATABASE_URL to run tests");

        .unwrap_or_else(|_| panic!("Error connecting to {}", &database_url))
