Connect Redis

connect-redis is a Redis session store backed by node_redis, and is insanely fast :). Requires redis >= 1.3.10 for the SETEX command.

connect-redis >= 1.0.0 support only connect >= 1.0.0.

Installation

  $ npm install connect-redis

Options

  • host Redis server hostname
  • port Redis server portno
  • db Database index to use
  • pass Password for Redis authentication
  • ... Remaining options passed to the redis createClient() method.

Usage

Due to npm 1.x changes, we now need to pass connect to the function connect-redis exports in order to extend connect.session.Store:

var connect = require('connect')
      , RedisStore = require('connect-redis')(connect);

connect.createServer(
  connect.cookieParser(),
  // 5 minutes
  connect.session({ store: new RedisStore, secret: 'keyboard cat' })
);

This means express users may do the following, since express.session.Store points to the connect.session.Store function:

var RedisStore = require('connect-redis')(express);
