Lumen Session Example

Example of

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47050984/enabling-session-in-lumen-framework/47055083#47055083

Note

I've updated this repo to support to all lumen version starting from 5.6 to 8.0. All versions are in their corresponding branches whereas master branch correspond to laravel/lumen-framework 8.0.

How-To

Laravel has officially stopped supporting sessions & views in laravel/lumen framework from version 5.2 and on wards.

But laravel still have a component illuminate/session which can be installed in lumen/framework and we can play around with this.

Step - 1

install illuminate/session using

composer require illuminate/session

Step - 2

Now goto bootstrap/app.php and add this middleware

$app->middleware([
    \Illuminate\Session\Middleware\StartSession::class,
]);

Purpose of adding the above middleware is to start session on every request and save session before serving response.

Step - 3

Now add config/session.php, since it is not present in Lumen by default. You can take session.php from Laravel official repo.

Step - 4

Create framework session storage directory by

mkdir -p storage/framework/sessions

Thanks to DayDream

Step - 5

In bootstrap/app.php add bindings for \Illuminate\Session\SessionManager

$app->singleton(Illuminate\Session\SessionManager::class, function () use ($app) {
    return $app->loadComponent('session', Illuminate\Session\SessionServiceProvider::class, 'session');
});

$app->singleton('session.store', function () use ($app) {
    return $app->loadComponent('session', Illuminate\Session\SessionServiceProvider::class, 'session.store');
});

Thanks to @xxRockOnxx for finding loadComponent method. It takes 3 arguments,

  • first one is config file name. (file should be present in config/ directory)
  • second is ServiceProvider FQN
  • third is return of this method.

loadComponent just calls the $app->register and inject $app while building the ServiceProvider

How to Use

// Save Session
$router->get('/', function (\Illuminate\Http\Request $request) {

    $request->session()->put('name', 'Lumen-Session');

    return response()->json([
        'session.name' => $request->session()->get('name')
    ]);
});


// Test session
$router->get('/session', function (\Illuminate\Http\Request $request) {

    return response()->json([
        'session.name' => $request->session()->get('name'),
    ]);
});
