Started a new Conversation Authorize In App.js + Owns In Authorization.js Not Working, Buttons Doesn't Shows?.


in build forum tutorial, in order to update/delete a thread, or update/delete/favorite a reply, you need to be signed if and be the owner of the thread/reply, i used an "authorize method", declared in app.js but it doesn't work at all, as a result all my buttons are not displayed even if i'm the owner of the thread/reply , here's the full code

notice : it also using vue2js

this is in app.js, authorize :

let authorizations = require('./authorization');

Vue.prototype.authorize = function (...params) { if (! return false;

if (typeof params[0] === 'string') {
    return authorizations[params[0]](params[1]);

return params[0](;


Vue.prototype.signedIn =; and this is authorization.js

let user =;

module.exports = { owns (model, prop = 'user_id') { return ! model[prop] ===; },


reply.vue :

    <div class="card-body">
        <div v-if="editing">
            <div class="form-group">
                <form @submit.prevent="update">
                    <div class="form-group">
                        <wysiwyg v-model="body"></wysiwyg>

                    <button class="btn btn-sm btn-primary">Update</button>
                    <button class="btn btn-sm btn-link" @click="editing = false" type="button">Cancel</button>
        <article v-html="body" v-else></article>

    <div class="card-footer d-flex justify-content-between" v-if="authorize('owns', reply) || authorize('owns', reply.thread)">
        <div v-if="authorize('owns', reply)">
            <button class="btn btn-sm btn-success mr-1" @click="editing = true">Edit</button>
            <button class="btn btn-danger btn-sm" @click="destroy">Delete</button>
        <button class="btn btn-sm btn-outline-primary ml-a" @click="markBestReply" v-if="authorize('owns', reply.thread)">Best Reply?</button>
import Favorite from './Favorite.vue'; import moment from 'moment'; export default { props: ['reply'], components: {Favorite}, data() { return { editing: false, id:, body: this.reply.body, isBest: this.reply.isBest, }; }, created() {$on('best-reply-selected', id => { this.isBest = (id ===; }); }, computed: { ago() { return moment(moment.utc(this.reply.created_at)).fromNow(); }, signedIn() { return; }, canUpdate() { return this.authorize(user => == } }, methods: { update() { axios.patch( '/replies/' +, { body: this.body }) .catch(error => { flash(, 'danger'); }); this.editing = false; flash('Updated!'); }, destroy() { axios.delete('/replies/' +; this.$emit('deleted', }, markBestReply() {'/replies/' + + '/best');$emit('best-reply-selected',; } } }
