Proxy Session Store

Setup

npm install proxy-session-store

In express app:

var session = require('express-session');
var ProxySessionStore = require('proxy-session-store')(session);

app.use(session({
           store: new ProxySessionStore({
               port: 9999,
               hostname: 'localhost',
               body: {
                   apiKey: '<api_key>',
                   someOtherOptionalKey: 'which you want to pass to session store'
               }
           }),
           secret: 'keyboard cat'
       }
   ));

In above example Proxy Session Store will send POST request to server listening on http://localhost:9999. Body of POST request in this example looks like this:

{
   apiKey: '<api_key>',
   someOtherOptionalKey: 'which you want to pass to session store',
   body: 'SESSION DATA'
}

Avaliable options

  • port - port of service with exposed HTTP API
  • hostname - hostname of service with exposed HTTP API
  • body - OPTIONAL - any additional data which should be send in HTTP request
