Inoplate abilities loader is a laravel package to load and check abilities from database.
composer install inoplate/abilities
Before we can use this package, we must follow several step below.
Add Inoplate\Abilities\AbilitiesServiceProvider to our providers configuration.
Replate providers for Illuminate\Auth\AuthServiceProvider with Inoplate\Abilities\AuthServiceProvider
To register abilities, we can extend BootstrapServiceProvider that shipped with this package. Define availabe abilities in the getAbilities method
// Abilities are developer defined entity. Yess!// You must define abilities that are available for checkingreturn ['create-post', 'update-post', 'delete-post'];
This package shipped with default migrations. You can publish and use it or use something else based with what you need. This package also shipped with User and Role model that has abilities property. And again you are free to use it or not. (User an Role are N:N in relationship)
$user->abilities; // Retrieve user abilities$user->roles->abilities; // Retrieve user specific role abilities// To assign abilities, use Role. // Unfortunately, we can't set abilities directly to user at the moment.// NOTE! Abilities assignment will override existing abilities.$role = Role::find(1);
$role->abilities = ['new-abilities'];
Every time we check ability like $user->can('create-post') or Gate::allows('create-post'), it will check the abilities that belongs to User.
Policy is a resource based check, we can use it as usual.
If you use custom Gate checker, there will be one additional parameters that is ability to check.
