Actix Webfinger

A library to aid in resolving and providing webfinger objects with the Actix Web web framework.

The main functionality this crate provides is through the Webfinger::fetch method for Actix Web-based clients, and the Resolver<S> trait for Actix Web-based servers.


First, add Actix Webfinger as a dependency

actix = "0.7"
actix-web = "0.7"
actix-webfinger = "0.1"

Then use it in your application

Client Example

use actix::{Actor, System};
use actix_web::client::ClientConnector;
use actix_webfinger::Webfinger;
use futures::Future;
use openssl::ssl::{SslConnector, SslMethod};

fn main() {
    let sys = System::new("asonix");

    let ssl_conn = SslConnector::builder(SslMethod::tls()).unwrap().build();
    let conn = ClientConnector::with_connector(ssl_conn).start();

    let fut = Webfinger::fetch(conn, "asonix@asonix.dog", "localhost:8000", false)
        .map(move |w: Webfinger| {
            println!("asonix's webfinger:\n{:#?}", w);

        .map_err(|e| eprintln!("Error: {}", e));


    let _ = sys.run();

Server Example

use actix_web::server;
use actix_webfinger::{Resolver, Webfinger};
use futures::{future::IntoFuture, Future};

#[derive(Clone, Debug)]
pub struct MyState {
    domain: String,

pub struct MyResolver;

impl Resolver<MyState> for MyResolver {
    type Error = actix_web::error::JsonPayloadError;

    fn find(
        account: &str,
        domain: &str,
        state: &MyState,
    ) -> Box<dyn Future<Item = Option<Webfinger>, Error = Self::Error>> {
        let w = if domain == state.domain {
            Some(Webfinger::new(&format!("{}@{}", account, domain)))
        } else {


fn main() {
    server::new(|| {
        actix_webfinger::app::<MyState, MyResolver>(MyState {
            domain: "asonix.dog".to_owned(),
