Kan

Build Status Backers on Open Collective Sponsors on Open Collective

Simple functional authorization library for ruby. Inspired by transproc and dry project

Table of context

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'kan'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install kan

Usage

See User Documentation page

Basic Usage

Register abilities

class Post::Abilities
  include Kan::Abilities

  register('read') { |_, _| true }
  register('edit') { |user, post| user.id == post.user_id }
  register('delete') { |_, _| false }
end

Also, you can register more than one ability in one place and use string or symbol keys:

class Post::AdminAbilities
  include Kan::Abilities

  register(:read, :edit, :delete) { |user, _| user.admin? }
end

class Comments::Abilities
  include Kan::Abilities

  register('read') { |_, _| true }
  register('edit') { |user, _| user.admin? }

  register(:delete) do |user, comment|
    user.id == comment.user_id && comment.created_at < Time.now + TEN_MINUTES
  end
end

Check abilities

abilities = Kan::Application.new(
  post: Post::Abilities.new,
  comment: Comments::Abilities.new
)

abilities['post.read'].call(current_user, post) # => true
abilities['post.delete'].call(current_user, post) # => false
abilities['comment.delete'].call(current_user, post) # => false

Default ability block

By default Kan use proc { true } as a default ability block:

abilities['comment.invalid'].call(current_user, post) # => true

But you can rewrite it

admin_abilities = Kan::Application.new(
  post: Post::AdminAbilities.new(default_ability_block: proc { false }),
  comment: Comments::Abilities.new,
)

admin_abilities['post.delete'].call(current_user, post)  # => false
admin_abilities['post.delete'].call(admin_user, post)    # => true
admin_abilities['post.invalid'].call(current_user, post) # => false

List of abilities

You can provide array of abilities for each scope and Kan will return true if at least one ability return true:

global_abilities = Kan::Application.new(
  post: [Post::Abilities.new, Post::AdminAbilities.new],
  comment: Comments::Abilities.new
)

global_abilities['post.edit'].call(current_user, post) # => false
global_abilities['post.edit'].call(owner_user, post)   # => true
global_abilities['post.edit'].call(admin_user, post)   # => true
