Installation

via npm:

  $ npm install connect-memcached

Example

  /**
  * Module dependencies.
  */

  var express = require('express');

  // pass the express to the connect memcached module
  // allowing it to inherit from express.session.Store
  var MemcachedStore = require('connect-memcached')(express);

  var app = express.createServer();

  app.use(express.favicon());

  // request logging
  app.use(express.logger());

  // required to parse the session cookie
  app.use(express.cookieParser());

  // Populates:
  // - req.session
  // - req.sessionStore
  // - req.sessionID (or req.session.id)

  app.use(express.session({ 
    secret: 'CatOnTheKeyboard', 
    store: new MemcachedStore 
  }));

  app.get('/', function(req, res){
    if (req.session.views) {
      ++req.session.views;
    } else {
      req.session.views = 1;
    }
    res.send('Viewed <strong>' + req.session.views + '</strong> times.');
  });

  app.listen(3000);
  console.log('Express app started on port 3000');

Options
