Laravel 5.3 License

Structure Based: caffeinated/shinobi

Overseer provides a simple profile-based permissions system to Laravel's built in Auth system. Overseer provides support for the following ACL structure:

  • Every user can have zero or more profiles.
  • Every profile can have zero or more permissions.

Permissions are then inherited to the user through the user's assigned profiles.

The package follows the FIG standards PSR-1, PSR-2, and PSR-4. This package is not unit tested, but is planned to be covered.
