A Ruby Macaroon Library

August 27, 2020 — https://github.com/localmed/ruby-macaroons

Macaroons, like cookies, are a form of bearer credential. Unlike opaque tokens, macaroons embed caveats that define specific authorization requirements for the target service, the service that issued the root macaroon and which is capable of verifying the integrity of macaroons it recieves.

If it means I can avoid JavaScript Web Tokens, I’m interested in exploring further.
