Cookie-Token

Build Status NPM Downloads pledge

Create and serialize a cookie from a JWT token:

  • secure: the cookie is inaccessible from the client side to prevent cross-site scripting and can only be sent over HTTPS
  • memory efficient: cookie is decoded instead of being saved into memory

Usage

Here's an example to create a cookie from an authorization bearer containing a JWT token.

const http = require('http')
const cookie = require('cookie-token')
 
 
http.createServer((req, res) => {
 
  // parse cookie
  cookie.parse(req.headers.cookie).then(payload => {
    // do something
  })
 
  // create cookie
  const token = req.headers.authorization.split(' ')[1]
  res.setHeader('Set-Cookie', cookie.serialize(token))
  res.end()
})

Default configuration can be overridden by passing cookie options as a third argument. MaxAge is not created from the token to allow more control over the cookie expiration date.

Installation

npm install cookie-token --save

NPM
