    Roles based access control for HTTP servers using JWT authorization.

    Example

    This module look for roles.json files in a given folder and returns a middleware that indicates if the access to a requested URL is forbidden or not. Access is given only if one or multiple roles within a JSON Web Token match the roles specified in the JSON file.

    const http = require('http')
    const roles = require('robac')
     
    // parse folder, look for roles.json files with roles field and
    // create roles based access control.
    const handler = roles(__dirname, 'jwtsecret')
     
    http.createServer((req, res) => {
      handler(req, (err) => {
        if (err) {
          // not authorized
        } else {
          // serve page when authorized
        }
      })
    })
