This library provides tools to manage sessions in PureScript. It makes the
assumption that your session data is JSON-serializable (using the Argonaut
DecodeJson type classes). Two session stores are provided:
Session provides 4 basic functions:
SessionStoreand your session data and returns a Cookie representing your new session.
Cookieand returns your session data, if available.
SessionStore, your session data and your current session
Cookie. It returns a new session
SessionStoreand your session
Cookieand returns a new, empty session
Cookie session store uses
libsodium to encrypt and decrypt
session data directly in the cookie. You'll need to install the npm package
npm install libsodium-wrappers
You create a
Cookie store by calling
Biscotti.Session.cookieStore with a
name for your session cookie and a
libsodium-compatible secret, hex encoded.
import Biscotti.Session as Session let store = Session.cookieStore "_my_app" "724b092810ec86d7e35c9d067702b31ef90bc43a7b598626749914d6a3e033ed"
Note: This is an example secret. Please don't commit your production secret to your git repo or post it on the internet. Also, please don't use this secret as it is already posted on the internet. It's literally right above this paragraph and you're reading this on Github.
Memory session store uses an in-memory map to store sessions. This is
primarily for development purposes as it will not persist sessions across
multiple application servers. You'll need to install two npm packages to
npm install uuid uuid-validate
You create a
Memory store by calling
Biscotti.Session.memoryStore with a
name for your session cookie. Note that this returns a
because it requires initializing a
import Biscotti.Session as Session launchAff_ do store <- liftEffect $ Session.memoryStore "_my_app"
