[][src]Crate rocket_auth_login


This crate includes traits and miscellaneous helpers that help provide authentication to your rocket web app.


The crate consists of an authorization module and a sanitization helper module. The authorization module provides two traits:


contains methods to store or retrieve a data structure from a cookie. The AuthorizeCookie trait is implemented on a data structure that contain all of data stored in the cookie, like username, display name, email, etc. Any data you wish to be readily available without an expensive database lookup can be stored in the cookie data structure.


contains methods to collect a data structure that contains the contents of a login form submission. The credentials stored in the data structure are then authenticated and by using either the flash_redirect() or redirect() methods, the user can be redirected either to an admin dashboard for example or upon failure a retry login page.
