    socket.io-session

    Unobtrusive Socket.io middleware to add Express 3 session capability.

    npm install socket.io-session
    

    This module uses io.set('authorization') to add a session property to socket.handshake.

    var express = require('express')
      , MongoStore = require('connect-mongo')(express)
      , ioSession = require('socket.io-session');
    
    var app = express();
    
    var sessionKey = 'secret key'
    var memoryStore = new MongoStore({ db: 'name', url: MONGO_URI + '/name' });
    app.use(express.cookieParser());
    app.use(express.session({ secret: sessionKey, store: memoryStore }));
    
    var io = require('socket.io').listen(server);
    io.set('authorization', ioSession(express.cookieParser(sessionKey), memoryStore));
    
    io.on('connection', function (socket) {
      console.log(socket.handshake.session);
    })
    

    Invocation

    You can use your own authorization function as the last argument after the session is added:

    ioSession(cookieParser, memoryStore, [session sid key], [authorization(data, accept)])
