NAME

Dancer2::Session::YAML - YAML-file-based session backend for Dancer2

VERSION

version 0.160001

DESCRIPTION

This module implements a session engine based on YAML files. Session are stored in a session_dir as YAML files. The idea behind this module was to provide a human-readable session storage for the developer.

This backend is intended to be used in development environments, when digging inside a session can be useful.

This backend can perfectly be used in production environments, but two things should be kept in mind: The content of the session files is in plain text, and the session files should be purged by a CRON job.

CONFIGURATION

The setting session should be set to YAML in order to use this session engine in a Dancer2 application.

Files will be stored to the value of the setting session_dir, whose default value is appdir/sessions.

Here is an example configuration that use this session engine and stores session files in /tmp/dancer-sessions

    session: "YAML"

    engines:
      session:
        YAML:
          session_dir: "/tmp/dancer-sessions"

DEPENDENCY

This module depends on YAML.
