Session management middleware for connect

branch: master
README.md

Connect CouchDB

connect-couchdb is a middleware session store for the connect framework. Build Status

Requirements

  • couchdb 1.2.x
  • yacw 0.2.x : the couchdb wrapper. Should be easy to use another one.
  • expresso (only for tests)

Installation

Via npm:

$ npm install connect-couchdb

Usage

var connect = require('connect'),
    ConnectCouchDB = require('connect-couchdb')(connect);

var store = new ConnectCouchDB({
  // Name of the database you would like to use for sessions.
  name: 'myapp-sessions',

  // Optional. How often expired sessions should be cleaned up.
  // Defaults to 600000 (10 minutes).
  reapInterval: 600000,

  // Optional. How often to run DB compaction against the session
  // database. Defaults to 300000 (5 minutes).
  // To disable compaction, set compactInterval to -1
  compactInterval: 300000,

  // Optional. How many time between two identical session store
  // Defaults to 60000 (1 minute)
  setThrottle: 60000
});
var server = connect.createServer();
server.use(connect.session({secret: 'YourSecretKey', store: store });

If the database specified doesn't already exist you have to create it with tools/ files. Run following command to create database, populate with the design document and setup the CouchDB database specific option _revs_limit :

$ node tools/setup.js <database_name> <revs_limit> [username] [password]

For more informations about the _revs_limit option, read this.

It is highly recommended that you use a separate database for your sessions for performance of both the session views and any other document views you may have.

See example.js file for an example connect server using connect-couch.

Updating

Please invoke the tool to create the design documents when updating to insure you are using the last version of the view.

$ node tools/put_design_docs.js <database_name> [username] [password]

Tests

$ npm test
