I have been working on a PHP application that involves user roles and permissions. I have been doing some research and came across the concept of namespaces in PHP. I understand that namespaces are used to avoid naming conflicts and organize code, but I was wondering if they can also be used to implement namespacing for user roles or permissions in my application.
Currently, I am handling user roles and permissions by using database tables and associating them with user entries. However, as the application grows, I feel like it's becoming harder to manage them in a structured way.
So, I was wondering if namespaces can provide a better organizational structure for managing user roles and permissions. For example, can I create namespaces like "admin", "moderator", or "user" and then have different classes or functions within those namespaces to represent the roles and permissions?
I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences on this matter. If namespaces are not the best approach for managing user roles and permissions, I am open to suggestions on other ways to achieve a clean and organized system.
Thank you in advance for your help!
