Laravel ACL brings a simple and light-weight role-based permissions system to Laravel's built in Auth system. This package was based on a great library Caffeinated/Shinobi and was enhanced to be fully compatible with Laravel's built-in Gate/Authorization system.

The package follows the FIG standards PSR-1, PSR-2, and PSR-4 to ensure a high level of interoperability between shared PHP code. At the moment the package is not unit tested, but is planned to be covered later down the road.


Laravel ACL brings support for the following ACL (Access Control List):

  • Every user can have zero or more roles.
  • Every role can have zero or more permissions.
  • Permissions are then inherited to the user through the user's assigned roles.
  • User can have zero or more permissions. (Available since v6)
