    lowdb-session-store

    Express session store using lowdb

    Installation

    $ npm install lowdb-session-store
    

    Usage

    This store implements all methods specified by the express-session store interface.

    const session = require('express-session');
    const LowdbStore = require('lowdb-session-store')(session);
    const lowdb = require('lowdb');
    const FileSync = require('lowdb/adapters/FileSync');
     
    // The default value must be an array.
    const adapter = new FileSync(pathname, { defaultValue: [] });
    const db = lowdb(adapter);
    ...
     
    app.use(session({
      secret: '12345',
      resave: false,
      saveUninitialized: false,
      store: new LowdbStore(db, {
        ttl: 86400
      })
    }))

    Parameters

    A new lowdb session store instance is created by instantiating the class returned by this module. The constructor takes one or two parameters:

    • db - The first parameter must be a lowdb instance.

    • options - An optional options object.

    Options

    • ttl - The expiration time for a session in seconds. A interval timer runs every ten minutes to purge expired sessions. The default value is 86400 (one day).
    • disablePurge - Set to true to disable the ten-minute session purge timer (useful for testing).

    Session Storage Type

    The value of the database must be an array as the sessions are stored as a collection.

    If you want to store the sessions as a property of a larger object, you can do that provided that the property value is an array.

    const session = require('express-session');
    const LowdbStore = require('lowdb-session-store')(session);
    const lowdb = require('lowdb');
    const FileSync = require('lowdb/adapters/FileSync');
     
    // The sessions property must be an array.
    const adapter = new FileSync(pathname, { defaultValue: { sessions: [] }});
    const db = lowdb(adapter);
    ...
     
    // We must get the sessions object before passing it to the session store.
    app.use(session({
      secret: '12345',
      resave: false,
      saveUninitialized: false,
      store: new LowdbStore(db.get('sessions'), {
        ttl: 86400
      })
    }))

    In this example, the sessions array is a property of an object. To make this work, you must get that structure and pass it as the database parameter to the session store.
