Working with sessions in Iron and Hyper


How can I create a simple authentication system in Rust/Iron or Hyper. For myself it’ll be good enough.

That is, I only want to:

  • write a user_id into a session

  • check if “user_id” exists in a session a cookie exists before each request

  • manually remove it when a user logs out

How can I do this?

I’m not asking for an auth. solution which already exists.


It seems you got some comments on reddit:


It seems? You’re unsure?
