gracenode-session Module

gracenode-session is designed to work within the Gracenode framework. It can not function without the Gracenode framework.

Installation

npm install gracenode-session

Or add it to your package.json

"dependencies": {
    "gracenode": "",
    "gracenode-session": ""
}

Gracenode does not automatically detect middleware. To add the session module to your framework you have to call use.

var gracenode = require('gracenode');
gracenode.use('gracenode-session');

Loading the session module like this will expose it in gracenode.session.

Configuration

This module requires you to have a configuration parameter set for the TTL. Below is a configuration example.

"modules": {
    "session": {
        "ttl": int (in seconds)
    }
}

Version 1.0.0

Since version 1.0.0 there is a backward compatability break. When calling getSession a data object is no longer returned, instead an instantiated Session class is returned which allows for more control over the session data without having to query your datastore.

API

Session Object

When calling getSession an instance of the Session class is returned to retrieve and set data to the session.

Session.get

Returns a value for key if this has been stored.

session.get('key');

Session.set

Set a value for key.

session.set('foo', 'bar');

Session.save

Save the current data to your datastore.

session.save(function (error) {
    //Your magic
});

session.setSetter(setterFunction {function})

session.setRemover(deleteFunction {function})

session.setFlusher(flusherFunction {function})
