Rust actix-web with maud

How to use maud in actix web as a lightweight template engine.

this is a working html page handler:

use actix_web::{get, web, Result};
use maud::{html, Markup};

async fn index() -> Result<Markup> {
    // Fetch some data - this might fail, therefore using `Result` as function return value
    let page_title = await fetch_title()
		    .map_err(|_| actix_web::error::ErrorInternalServerError("could not fetch categories"))?;

    // render response
    Ok(html! {
        html {
            head {
						    title { (page_title) }
            body {
                main class="container flex-shrink-0 py-5" {
                    h1 { (page_title) }

and this is how you mount it as usual:

async fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    HttpServer::new(|| App::new().service(index))
        .bind(("", 8080))?
