Ring Middleware Sample

Pedestal incorporates existing ring middleware into its interceptors functionality. In this example, we implement a service that stores your name in the session via setting a session token in the cookie store. We are depending on ring.middleware.session.cookie for this functionality.

For further enlightenment, take a look at:

  • The pedestal ring-middlewares package: io.pedestal.http.ring-middlewares
  • The pedestal interceptors functionality: io.pedestal.interceptor

See it in Action

  1. Start the application: lein run
  2. Go to localhost:8080 and enter your name in the field. You will be directed to the /hello page, and your name displayed. So long as the service is not killed, you will be remembered.
  3. Learn more! See the Links section below.


To configure logging see config/logback.xml. By default, the app logs to stdout and logs/. To learn more about configuring Logback, read its documentation.
