express-session full featured
MemoryStoremodule without leaks!
A session store implementation for Express using lru-cache.
Because the default
MemoryStore for express-session will lead to a memory leak due to it haven't a suitable way to make them expire.
The sessions are still stored in memory, so they're not shared with other processes or services.
$ npm install express-session memorystore
express-session store into
memorystore to create a
var session =var MemoryStore = sessionapp
checkPeriodDefine how long MemoryStore will check for expired. The period is in ms. The automatic check is disabled by default! Not setting this is kind of silly, since that's the whole purpose of this lib.
maxThe maximum size of the cache, checked by applying the length function to all values in the cache. It defaults to
ttlSession TTL (expiration) in milliseconds. Defaults to session.maxAge (if set), or one day. This may also be set to a function of the form
(options, sess, sessionID) => number.
disposeFunction that is called on sessions when they are dropped from the cache. This can be handy if you want to close file descriptors or do other cleanup tasks when sessions are no longer accessible. Called with
key, value. It's called before actually removing the item from the internal cache, so if you want to immediately put it back in, you'll have to do that in a
setTimeoutcallback or it won't do anything.
staleBy default, if you set a
maxAge, it'll only actually pull stale items out of the cache when you
get(key). (That is, it's not pre-emptively doing a
setTimeoutor anything.) If you set
stale:true, it'll return the stale value before deleting it. If you don't set this, then it'll return
undefinedwhen you try to get a stale entry, as if it had already been deleted.
serializerAn object containing
JSONto override the serializer used.
memorystore implements all the required, recommended and optional methods of the express-session store. Plus a few more:
stopInterval() methods to start/clear the automatic check for expired.
prune() that you can use to manually remove only the expired entries from the store.
