What is visibility?
Flysystem provides a simplified approach to dealing with permissions, called visibility. Visibility, is a string based configuration option that allows you set permissions on files and directories. The visibility conversion classes and interfaces give you fine-grained control over permissions for every adapter.
By default, all the adapters understand a public/private visibility setting. This setting is translated to the adapter’s own way of interpreting this setting. The interpretation is aimed to be as similar in effect across all adapter. This can, however, not fit your needs. In this case you can implement your own visibility strategy.
For filesystems with a Unix-style visibility system, like on MacOS and Linux, these string
values are translated to permissions like
unix-style visibility module provides an implementation
to configure how you want these values to be interpreted.
Unix-style visibility is used for:
Every adapter has its own visibility conversion interface you can use to implement your own visibility strategy.
