koa-session-store

Session middleware for Koa with a pluggable storage layer

koa-session-store

Session middleware for Koa with a pluggable storage layer (for use with Mongo, Redis, etc.). Based on koa-session.

npm install koa-session-store
var session = require('koa-session-store');
var koa = require('koa');
 
var app = koa();
 
app.keys = ['some secret key'];  // needed for cookie-signing 
 
// cookie will be named "koa:sess" and session data will be stored in the cookie itself 
app.use(session());
 
app.use(function(next){
  return function *(){
    var n = this.session.views || 0;
    this.session.views = ++n;
    this.body = n + ' views';
  }
})
 
app.listen(3000);
console.log('listening on port 3000');

To delete an existing session:

this.session = null;

The following configuration options are available:

app.use(session({
  name: 'mysite'    // cookie name 
  store: <object instance> or "cookie"   // session storage layer - see below 
  cookie: {
    // cookie configuration options - see below 
  }
}));

The default cookie configuration options are set to:

signed: true      // cookie is signed using KeyGrip 
httpOnly: true    // cookie is not accessible via client-side JS 
overwrite: true   // overwrite existing cookie datawhen setting cookie 

For a full list of options see the cookies module.

The store configuration option specifies where the session data is stored. If omitted or set to "cookie" then session data will be stored in the cookie itself.

If you wish to store session data elsewhere (e.g. in Mongo, Redis, etc.) then you must set this to an object which exposes the following API:

  • load(sid) - load session data for given session id

    • sid - {String} session identifier.
    • returns a Promise, Thunk or generator which returns a JSON string of the session object data.
  • save(sid, data) - save session data for given session id

    • sid - {String} session identifier.
    • data - _{String} session data converted to JSON string.
    • returns a Promise, Thunk or generator which returns once data is saved.
  • remove(sid) - remove session data for given session id

    • sid - {String} session identifier.
    • returns a Promise, Thunk or generator which returns once removal is complete.

The following storage layers are currently available:
