Dancer::Session::ElasticSearch - ElasticSearch based session engine for Dancer
This module implements a session engine storing session variables in an ElasticSearch index. It also signs IDs to thwart tampering and guessing. Requires perl version 5.10 or higher.
session: "ElasticSearch" session_options: connection: ... settings to pass to ElasticSearch index: "my_index" # defaults to "session" type: "my_session" # defaults to "session" signing: secret: "ldjaldjaklsdanm.m" # required for signing IDs length: 10 # length of the salt and hash. defaults to 10 is_lazy: 0 # (off by default)
This session engine will not remove expired sessions on the server, but as it's ElasticSearch you can set a ttl on the documents when you create your ES index and let ES do the work for you.
Creates a new session. Returns the session object.
Write the session to ES. Returns the session object.
Look for a session with the given id.
Returns the session object if found,
undef if not.
Remove the current session object from ES
Accessor for the is_lazy
session_option. Is off by default. When switched off every get/set call will read/write from ES, which can be expensive (access a variable or two and you make a get request to ES each time).
If you switch it on, you will need to call
flush yourself (in an after hook, for example) to save session data to the backend.
Connect to ElasticSearch and returns a handle
Overload the init method in Dancer::Session::Abstract to
not create an ID as we will use the ElasticSearch ID instead.
Verifies a signed ID
Signs an ID
Creates a hash from the $id, $salt and secret key as found in the config
