👷 Introducing: restricted-workers library, version 0.1.0.
This library provides an abstract interface for running various kinds
👷 of workers under resource restrictions. It is being developed as part
of the interactive-diagrams project and you can read more about the
origins of the library in my GSoC report:
👷 The library provides a convenient way of running worker processes,
👷 saving data obtained by the workers at start-up, a simple pool
🔒 abstraction and a configurable security and resource limitations.
🔒 Right now there are several kinds of security restrictions that could
👷 be applied to the worker process:
- chroot jail
- custom process euid
- 🖨 process niceness
- 🔒 SELinux security context
You can read more about the library on the wiki:
The library has been uploaded to hackage and you can install it using cabal-install.
