Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

LevelUp adapter for ACL

This project is an adapter for PouchDB library for the NODE ACL project.

Installation

$ npm install node_acl_pouchdb

Usage

You can get started by simply creating a new PouchDB instance with the backing store of your choice, whether it is remote, local, WebSQL, SQLite, or LevelDB. LevelDB is the default with node.js, so you can use MemDOWN for an in memory solution such as the following:

// PouchDB
var PouchDB = require('pouchdb');
var memdown = require('memdown');
var db = new PouchDB('acl', {db : memdown});

var Acl = require('node_acl_pouchdb');

var acl = new Acl(new Acl.pouchdbBackend(db, 'acl'));

// guest is allowed to view blogs
acl.allow('guest', 'blogs', 'view', function (err) {
  if (err) { throw err; }

  // Add a user to guest
  acl.addUserRoles('joed', 'guest', function (err) {
    if (err) { throw err; }

    // Check whether user joed can view blogs
    acl.isAllowed('joed', 'blogs', 'view', function(err, result) {
      if (err) { throw err; }

      console.log('User joed is allowed to view blogs? ', result);
  });
});
// => User joed is allowed to view blogs? true

Known Issues

Currently, due to sequencing issues within the NODE ACL project, the batch processing of allowing resources is not supported, such as the following:

acl.allow(
  [
    {
      roles: 'fumanchu',
      allows: [
        {resources: 'blogs', permissions: 'get'},
        {resources: ['forums','news'], permissions: ['get','put','delete']},
        {resources: ['/path/file/file1.txt', '/path/file/file2.txt'], permissions: ['get','put','delete']}
      ]
    }
  ],
  function (err) {
    if (err) { throw err; }
  }
);

Instead, the nested approach is the only approach which works.

acl.allow('fumanchu', ['blogs'], ['get'], function (err) {
  if (err) { throw err; }

  acl.allow('fumanchu', ['forums', 'news'], ['get', 'put', 'delete'], function (err) {
    if (err) { throw err; }

    acl.allow('fumanchu', ['/path/file/file1.txt', '/path/file/file2.txt'], ['get', 'put', 'delete'], function (err) {
      if (err) { throw err; }
    })
  });
});

This can be of course alleviated by such modules as async.

var async = require('async');

async.series([
  function (cb) {
    acl.allow('fumanchu', ['blogs'], ['get'], cb);
  },
  function (cb) {
    acl.allow('fumanchu', ['forums', 'news'], ['get', 'put', 'delete'], cb);
  },
  function (cb) {
    acl.allow('fumanchu', ['/path/file/file1.txt', '/path/file/file2.txt'], ['get', 'put', 'delete'], cb);
  }
], function (err) {
  if (err) { throw err; }
});

Or even RxJS.

var Rx = require('rx');

var allow = Rx.Observable.fromNodeCallback(acl.allow, acl);

var source = Rx.Observable.concat(
  allow('fumanchu', ['blogs'], ['get']),
  allow('fumanchu', ['forums', 'news'], ['get', 'put', 'delete']),
  allow('fumanchu', ['/path/file/file1.txt', '/path/file/file2.txt'], ['get', 'put', 'delete'])
);

source.subscribe(
  function () { /* Nothing to see here */ },
  function (err) { console.log(err); },
  function () { console.log('done'); }
)
