Riak Sessions

Using Riak to store sessions in Rack based applications.

Overview

Lets say you are already using Riak, this awesome document-oriented Web and you might think of avoiding using Memcache, Pool and since you already have a database, lets store it there right?, this library plugs it into Rack so you can use it in your Sinatra, Merb, Camping, etc.

Why?

Because I kinda like Riak.

Installing

Get Riak: http://riak.basho.com/ Get the Jiak Ruby client: http://hg.basho.com/riak/src/tip/client_lib/jiak.rb

Usage

Quick Sinatra app, using flash to test the sessions (included in the examples folder too):

/config.ru:

require 'app'

run App

/app.rb:

require 'rubygems'
require 'sinatra/base'
require 'rack-flash'
require 'rack_sessions'

class App < Sinatra::Base
  use Rack::Session::Riak

  use Rack::Flash

  get '/' do
    flash[:notice] = "hello!"
    erb :index   
  end
end

/views/index.erb

<% if flash.has?(:notice) %>
  <h1>Notice: <%= flash[:notice] %></h1>
<% end %>

You can also specify options to your Riak server and port and options:

use Rack::Session::Riak, :riak_server => 'example.com', :riak_port => 8888, :options => {'w'=>'3','dw'=>'3'}
