NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::WWWSession - Use WWWW::Session with Mojolicious

VERSION

Version 0.05

This module allows you to overwrite the standard Mojolicious session with a WWW::Session object and enjoy all the goodies it provides

Example :

Storage backends

You can use one or more of the fallowing backends :

File storage

In you apllication module add the fallowing lines

    use Mojolicious::Plugin::WWWSession;

    sub startup {
    
        ...
    
        #Overwrite session
        $self->plugin( WWWSession => { storage => [File => {path => '.'}] } );

        ...
    }

See WWW::Session::Storage::File for more details

Database storage

In you apllication module add the fallowing lines

    use Mojolicious::Plugin::WWWSession;

    sub startup {
    
        ...
    
        #Overwrite session
        $self->plugin( WWWSession => { storage => [ MySQL => { 
                                                            dbh => $dbh,
                                                            table => 'sessions',
                                                            fields => {
                                                                    sid => 'session_id',
                                                                    expires => 'expires',
                                                                    data => 'data'
                                                            }
                                                    ] 
                                      } );

        ...
    }

The "fields" hasref contains the mapping of session internal data to the column names from MySQL. The keys are the session fields ("sid","expires" and "data") and must all be present.

The MySQL types of the columns should be :

  • sid => varchar(32)

  • expires => DATETIME or TIMESTAMP

  • data => text

See WWW::Session::Storage::MySQL for more details

Memcached storage

In you apllication module add the fallowing lines

    use Mojolicious::Plugin::WWWSession;

    sub startup {
    
        ...
    
        #Overwrite session
        $self->plugin( WWWSession => { storage => ['Memcached' => {servers => ['127.0.0.1:11211']}] } );

        ...
    }

See WWW::Session::Storage::Memcached for more details

Using the session

This session can be used in the exact same way the strandard Mojolicious session is used

Possible options for the plugin

Here is an exmple containing the options you can pass to the plugin:

    {
    storage => [ 'File' => { path => '/tmp/sessions'},
                 'Memcached' => { servers => ['127.0.0.1'] }
               ],
    serialization => 'JSON',
    expires => 3600,
    fields => {
              user => {
                      inflate => sub { return Some::Package->new( $_[0] ) },
                      deflate => sub { $_[0]->id() },
                      }
              age => {
                     filter => [21..99],
                     }
    }
    

See WWW:Session for more details on possible options and on how you can use the session

If you use the "Storable" serialization engine you can store objects in the session. Also multiple session storage backends can be used simultaneously
