Expected Behavior

Publ needs a way to add private/friends-only/restricted content. There are two major parts to this, identity management (which is what Authl is for) and content restriction.

Possible Solution

Some thoughts about this are detailed at (which you can also read at if the Publ site is down).

For development purposes there will of course need to be a way of setting the remote identity locally, e.g. by running it with a REMOTE_USER environment variable set. This will help to decouple the implementation of the privacy features from the implementation of Authl (and also allow people to test their entry visibility as they author it).

In the long term there should also probably be an auth role for an identity that allows you to impersonate any other identity, to be exposed by whatever dashboard function is tied to the auth stuff.

(This feature also necessitates the development of some sort of admin dashboard endpoint, which will only be visible to someone with an auth role of _admin or whatever.)
