Session middleware for v1.x;


var socketSessions = require('');
var io = require('')(3000);
io.use( socketSessions() );

Using connect-redis for our session store.

var session = require('express-session');
var RedisStore = require('connect-redis')(session);
var sessionStore = new RedisStore();
var cookieParser = require('cookie-parser');
var socketHandshake = require('');
var io = require('')(3000);
io.use(socketHandshake({store: sessionStore, key:'sid', secret:'secret', parser:cookieParser()}));

To access the session data.

io.on('connection' function (sock) {
  if (! {
    sock.emit('get name');
  sock.on('set nama', function (name) { = name;;
