connect-csrf-cookie

connect-csrf-cookie

By default this middleware sets a "csrftoken" cookie containing the csrf token generated by the csrf middleware. This is especially helpful for Single Page Apps which make lots of AJAX calls.

This middleware requires session support and the csrf middleware, thus should be added somewhere below session(), cookieParser() and csrf().

Install

npm install connect-csrf-cookie

Usage

app.use(connect.cookieParser());
app.use(connect.session({ secret: 'keyboard cat' }));
app.use(connect.csrf());
app.use(require('connect-csrf-cookie')());

The middleware takes an optional parameter cookie_key which will determine the name of the cookie.
