Use express-session as socket.io middleware.
All you have to do is adding a middleware like you would in your express app.
var ios = ;var session = ... configured express-session instance...io;...io;
An example app is available under the the
example folder. Run the
npm run example command to start it.
IMPORTANT: You must pass the same session configuration into express and socket app (the same store, same secret)!
IMPORTANT: Do not use the default
MemoryStore session store. It is not designed for a production environment. If you do use the default store then you should pass the same session instance to express and socket app (data are saved in memory).
