A OAuth2 server library, for use in combination with common web servers, featuring a set of configurable and pluggable backends.


oxide-auth aims at providing a comprehensive and extensible interface to managing OAuth2 tokens on a server. The core package is agnostic of the used front-end web server and adaptors for the actix, rocket, iron and rouille crates are provided in extension crates. Through an interface designed with traits, the frontend is as easily pluggable as the backend.


$ cargo run example-actix

In the example folder you can find an interactive example. This configures a server, registers a public client and initializes a resource requiring an authorization token. A client is also activated which can be used to access the resource. The example assumes the user to be the validated resource owner, who can deny or allow the request by the client.


Some popular server libraries have ready-made integration. These still require some dependency on the base crate but generally wrap the interface into a user that is considered more idiomatic for their library. Besides the implementation of oxide-auth traits for the request type, specific error and response traits are also implemented.

A more or less comprehensive list of changes is contained in the changelog. Sometimes less as larger releases and reworks profit from a rough overview of the changes more than a cumulative list of detailed features.
