    There is a special type NumericDate (https://github.com/cristalhq/jwt/blob/main/numeric_date.go) to handle this, however if you have an example where it doesn't work with golang-jwt/jwt please share it, will be happy to add a test for this (or even a fix if something is wrong :( )

  • JWT authentication
    1 project | dev.to | 24 Jun 2021
    Authentication is one of the most important part of almost every web application. We must ensure that every user can create, read, update and delete only data for which it's authorized. For that purpose we will use JWT (JSON Web Token). Fortunately, there are various Golang modules specialized for this. One that will be used in this guide can be found in this GitHub repo. Current latest version is v3 which can ne installed by running go get github.com/cristalhq/jwt/v3.
