Probably the quickest way to add authentication to an application is with Barricade. Barricade handles login and registration pages and connects to your Postgres database.
We've already created the tables that Barricade needs in the migrations section. so we just need to add configuration
barricade: image: purtontech/barricade:1.2.5 env_file: - .env depends_on: db: condition: service_healthy ports: - "127.0.0.1:9090:9090"
We also need to add a health check to our db section so that we know when the database is ready.
db: ... healthcheck: test: interval: 10s timeout: 5s retries: 5
Add the following to you
# Barricade config DATABASE_URL=postgresql://postgres:testpassword@db:5432/postgres?sslmode=disable SECRET_KEY=190a5bf4b3cbb6c0991967ab1c48ab30790af876720f1835cbbf3820f4f5d949 FORWARD_URL=development FORWARD_PORT=3000 # Any requests that meet the following regular expressions # with pass through. i.e. They don't require auth. SKIP_AUTH_FOR=/static* REDIRECT_URL='/'
After rebuilding your devcontainer you will need to register as a user. Make sure you server is running again i.e.
Expose port 9090 from your devcontainer then go to
http://localhost:9090 and sign up.
Accessing the user from Axum
We need to create a file called
crates/axum-server/src/authentication.rs and add the following code.
// Extract the barricade use ; // From a request extract our authentication token.
Connect this into our
crates/axum-server/src/main.rs by adding a line
mod authentication at the top of the
Using the Authentication Extractor
Form within a handler you can access the user id like so...
user_id is the database ID of the user in the
