    There are good libraries around authentication and authorization. There was at one point an analogue to ActiveAdmin, but it looks to be a dead project now. I generally discourage the use of those kinds of interfaces but if you must, this is more current: https://github.com/mojotech/torch

    Coming from the Ruby ecosystem, a lot of this played out similarly to how the Rack[1] middleware conventions developed in the early Rails v1 and v2 days. Prior to Rack there was a lot of fragmentation in HTTP server libraries, post-Rack everything more or less played nicely as long as libraries implemented Rack interfaces.

    I don't write Rust professionally, but it was a bummer seeing that this seems to be a place that was figured out (painfully) in ecosystems used heavily for web development--Javascript and Elixir have their own Rack equivalents[2][3]. I hope that Tower plays a similar role to unify the library ecosystem in Rust.

    If you're not familiar with it, feel free to check the inner workings of Plug in their documentation. For now, the code above is fairly self-explanatory I hope. All we need to know is that we're using the Plug.Router capabilities and exposing an endpoint /bpi which we're going to use to retrieve our data and to show it.

    Well if Phoenix came with the ability to use Sqlite I'd definitely like it a lot better for smaller sites. Maybe if Elixir had something like Sinatra. I guess using Cowboy or Plug could work.
