    connect-leveldb

    NPM NPM

    Build Status

    This module provides a session store for connect which uses leveldb and is heavily based on the connect-redis module.

    Installation

    npm install connect-leveldb
    

    Options

    • db An existing db
    • dbLocation The location of the database to open / create.
    • ttl Session time to live (TTL) in seconds.
    • prefix Key prefix defaults to "sess:"

    Usage

    Very simple to setup.

    var connect = require('connect')
    var LeveldbStore = require('connect-leveldb')(connect)
    
    connect()
      .use(connect.session({ store: new LeveldbStore(options), secret: 'keyboard cat' }))
    

    Express 3.x users

    var express = require('express');
    var LeveldbStore = require('connect-leveldb')(express);
    var app = express();
    app.use(express.cookieParser());
    app.use(express.session({ store: new LeveldbStore({ dbLocation: __dirname + '/db' }), secret: 'keyboard cat' }));
    

    Express 4.x users

    var express = require('express');
    var cookieParser = require('cookie-parser')
    var session = require('express-session')
    var LeveldbStore = require('connect-leveldb')(session);
    var app = express();
    app.use(cookieParser());
    app.use(session({ store: new LeveldbStore({ dbLocation: __dirname + '/db' }), secret: 'keyboard cat' }));
    

    With Sublevel you need to specify the value encoding:

    var express = require('express');
    var LevelUp = require('level');
    var Sublevel = require('level-sublevel');
    var LeveldbStore = require('connect-leveldb')(express);
    var db = Sublevel(LevelUp(__dirname + '/db'));
    var sessions = db.sublevel('sessions', { valueEncoding: 'json' });
    

    Things to Note

    This module uses a lazy deletion model which means it will only clean up sessions IF a user access the site after they expire. It is primarily designed for use on sites with users who regularly revisit the site for updates.
