Object::Permission

Experimental method (and public attribute accessor,) level authorisation for Perl 6 objects.

Synopsis

use Object::Permission;

class Foo {
    has $.baz is authorised-by('baz');

    method bar() is authorised-by('barbar') {
        ...
    }
}

# Object::Permission::User is a role, just use type pun
$*AUTH-USER = Object::Permission::User.new(permissions => <barbar zub>);

my $foo = Foo.new;

$foo.bar();   # Executes okay
say $foo.baz; # Throws X::NotAuthorised

Description

This is an experimental module to provide a rudimentary authorisation mechanism for classes whereby selected methods or public attribute accessors can require a named permission to execute, the permissions associated with the dynamic variable $*AUTH-USER being checked at invocation and an exception being thrown if the User object does not have the required permission.

The intent is that $*AUTH-USER is initialised with an object of some class that does the role Object::Permission::User which populates the permissions as per the application logic.

Installation

Assuming you have a working Rakudo Perl 6 installation you should be able to install this with zef :
