MongoDB Session store for Rails 3 and Rack applications

Uses the ruby Mongo driver to store sessions in a MongoDB collection.

When Using in Rails 3 Applications

To use the session store in rails (In this example with Mongoid) add the rails store to your Gemfile:

gem "mongo_sessions", :require => "mongo_sessions/rails_mongo_store"

And change config/initializers/session_store.rb (mongoid:3.0.16, mongo_sessions:0.3.5) to something like:

MyApp::Application.config.session_store :mongo_store, key: '_MyApp_session', collection: lambda { Mongoid.default_session[:sessions] }

When Using in Rack Applications

Add the gem to your Gemfile:

gem "mongo_sessions", :require => "mongo_sessions/rack_mongo_store"

If you are not using Bundler.require:

require "mongo_sessions/rack_mongo_store"

Add the Rack Middleware to your app:

use Rack::Session::MongoStore

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
