This is a sample repository showcasing a rather straightforward way to handle user sessions, signup, and authentication in an actix-web project. I extracted it from something I'm working on as I realized that it can be otherwise tricky to figure out at a glance how all of this fits together (actix-web is still fairly fast moving, and the docs can be... rough). You might also not be interested in this, and that's cool too. It's licensed as a "do whatever you want" type deal, so... clone away and have fun. Some extra notes are below.
