Macaroons + Elixir: Distributed API Authorization

Macaroons allow decentralized authorization in the cloud, making them a fantastic fit for web applications built in Elixir. We'll take a look at what Macaroons are, the benefits they offer, and how they are a perfect authorization construct in a Phoenix based web application.
