All the languages supported by Casbin:

golang java nodejs php
Casbin jCasbin node-Casbin PHP-Casbin
production-ready production-ready production-ready production-ready
python dotnet delphi rust
PyCasbin Casbin.NET Casbin4D Casbin-RS
production-ready production-ready experimental WIP

Installation

npm install casbin --save

Get started

  1. Initialize a new node-Casbin enforcer with a model file and a policy file:
   import casbin from 'casbin';
   const enforcer = await casbin.newEnforcer('path/to/model.conf', 'path/to/policy.csv');

Note: you can also initialize an enforcer with policy in DB instead of file, see Persistence section for details.

  1. Add an enforcement hook into your code right before the access happens:
   const sub = 'alice'; // the user that wants to access a resource.
   const obj = 'data1'; // the resource that is going to be accessed.
   const act = 'read'; // the operation that the user performs on the resource.

   const res = await enforcer.enforce(sub, obj, act);
   if (res) {
     // permit alice to read data1
   } else {
     // deny the request, show an error
   }
  1. Besides the static policy file, node-Casbin also provides API for permission management at run-time. For example, You can get all the roles assigned to a user as below:
   const roles = await enforcer.getRolesForUser('alice');

See Policy management APIs for more usage.

  1. Please refer to the src/test package for more usage.

Policy management

Casbin provides two sets of APIs to manage permissions:

  • Management API: the primitive API that provides full support for Casbin policy management.
  • RBAC API: a more friendly API for RBAC. This API is a subset of Management API. The RBAC users could use this API to simplify the code.

We also provide a web-based UI for model management and policy management:
