Fast http sessions manager for Go.
Simple API, while providing robust set of features such as immutability, expiration time (can be shifted), databases like boltdb, raw file, leveldb and redis as back-end storage.

Outline

// Start starts the session for the particular net/http request
Start(w http.ResponseWriter,r *http.Request) Session
// ShiftExpiration move the expire date of a session to a new date
// by using session default timeout configuration.
ShiftExpiration(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request)
// UpdateExpiration change expire date of a session to a new date
// by using timeout value passed by `expires` receiver.
UpdateExpiration(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request, expires time.Duration)
// Destroy kills the net/http session and remove the associated cookie
Destroy(w http.ResponseWriter,r  *http.Request)

// Start starts the session for the particular valyala/fasthttp request
StartFasthttp(ctx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) Session
// ShiftExpirationFasthttp move the expire date of a session to a new date
// by using session default timeout configuration.
ShiftExpirationFasthttp(ctx *fasthttp.RequestCtx)
// UpdateExpirationFasthttp change expire date of a session to a new date
// by using timeout value passed by `expires` receiver.
UpdateExpirationFasthttp(ctx *fasthttp.RequestCtx, expires time.Duration)
// Destroy kills the valyala/fasthttp session and remove the associated cookie
DestroyFasthttp(ctx *fasthttp.RequestCtx)

// DestroyByID removes the session entry
// from the server-side memory (and database if registered).
// Client's session cookie will still exist but it will be reseted on the next request.
//
// It's safe to use it even if you are not sure if a session with that id exists.
// Works for both net/http & fasthttp
DestroyByID(string)
// DestroyAll removes all sessions
// from the server-side memory (and database if registered).
// Client's session cookie will still exist but it will be reseted on the next request.
// Works for both net/http & fasthttp
DestroyAll()

// UseDatabase ,optionally, adds a session database to the manager's provider,
// a session db doesn't have write access
// see https://github.com/kataras/go-sessions/tree/master/sessiondb

Configuration

// Config is the configuration for sessions. Please review it well before using sessions.
type Config struct {
	// Cookie string, the session's client cookie name, for example: "mysessionid"
	//
	// Defaults to "gosessionid"
	Cookie string

	// CookieSecureTLS set to true if server is running over TLS
	// and you need the session's cookie "Secure" field to be setted true.
	//
	// Note: The user should fill the Decode configuation field in order for this to work.
	// Recommendation: You don't need this to be setted to true, just fill the Encode and Decode fields
	// with a third-party library like secure cookie, example is provided at the _examples folder.
	//
	// Defaults to false
	CookieSecureTLS bool

	// Encode the cookie value if not nil.
	// Should accept as first argument the cookie name (config.Name)

	// Should return the new session id, if error the session id setted to empty which is invalid.
	//
	// Note: Errors are not printed, so you have to know what you're doing,
	// and remember: if you use AES it only supports key sizes of 16, 24 or 32 bytes.
	// You either need to provide exactly that amount or you derive the key from what you type in.
	//
	// Defaults to nil
	Encode func(cookieName string, value interface{}) (string, error)
	// Decode the cookie value if not nil.
	// Should accept as first argument the cookie name (config.Name)
	//               as second second accepts the client's cookie value (the encoded session id).

	// If you want to delete the cookie when the browser closes, set it to -1.
	//
	// 0 means no expire, (24 years)
	// -1 means when browser closes
	// > 0 is the time.Duration which the session cookies should expire.
	//
	// Defaults to infinitive/unlimited life duration(0)

StartFasthttp returns the same object as Start, Session.

ID() string
Get(string) interface{}
HasFlash() bool
GetFlash(string) interface{}
GetString(key string) string
GetFlashString(string) string
GetInt(key string) (int, error)
GetInt64(key string) (int64, error)

VisitAll(cb func(k string, v interface{}))
Set(string, interface{})
SetImmutable(key string, value interface{})
SetFlash(string, interface{})
Delete(string)
Clear()
ClearFlashes()

We have only one simple example because the API is the same, the returned session is the same for both net/http and valyala/fasthttp.

Just append the word "Fasthttp", the rest of the API remains as it's with net/http.

Start for net/http, StartFasthttp for valyala/fasthttp. ShiftExpiration for net/http, ShiftExpirationFasthttp for valyala/fasthttp. UpdateExpiration for net/http, UpdateExpirationFasthttp for valyala/fasthttp. Destroy for net/http, DestroyFasthttp for valyala/fasthttp.

package main

import (
	"fmt"

	"github.com/kataras/go-sessions"
	"github.com/valyala/fasthttp"
)

func main() {
// set some values to the session
setHandler := func(reqCtx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) {
	values := map[string]interface{}{
		"Name":   "go-sessions",
		"Days":   "1",
		"Secret": "dsads£2132215£%%Ssdsa",
	}

	sess := sessions.StartFasthttp(reqCtx) // init the session
	// sessions.StartFasthttp returns the, same, Session interface we saw before too

	for k, v := range values {
		sess.Set(k, v) // fill session, set each of the key-value pair
	}
	reqCtx.WriteString("Session saved, go to /get to view the results")
}

// get the values from the session
getHandler := func(reqCtx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) {
	sess := sessions.StartFasthttp(reqCtx) // init the session
	sessValues := sess.GetAll()            // get all values from this session

	reqCtx.WriteString(fmt.Sprintf("%#v", sessValues))
}

// clear all values from the session
clearHandler := func(reqCtx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) {
	sess := sessions.StartFasthttp(reqCtx)
	sess.Clear()
}

// destroys the session, clears the values and removes the server-side entry and client-side sessionid cookie
destroyHandler := func(reqCtx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) {
	sessions.DestroyFasthttp(reqCtx)
}

fmt.Println("Open a browser tab and navigate to the localhost:8080/set")
fasthttp.ListenAndServe(":8080", func(reqCtx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) {

Overview

Package sessions provides sessions support for net/http and valyala/fasthttp unique with auto-GC, register unlimited number of databases to Load and Update/Save the sessions in external server or to an external (no/or/and sql) database Usage net/http: // init a new sessions manager( if you use only one web framework inside your app then you can use the package-level functions like: sessions.Start/sessions.Destroy) manager := sessions.New(sessions.Config{}) // start a session for a particular client manager.Start(http.ResponseWriter, *http.Request)

// destroy a session from the server and client,

// don't call it on each handler, only on the handler you want the client to 'logout' or something like this:

manager.Destroy(http.ResponseWriter, *http.Request)

Usage valyala/fasthttp: // init a new sessions manager( if you use only one web framework inside your app then you can use the package-level functions like: sessions.Start/sessions.Destroy) manager := sessions.New(sessions.Config{}) // start a session for a particular client manager.StartFasthttp(*fasthttp.RequestCtx)

// destroy a session from the server and client,

// don't call it on each handler, only on the handler you want the client to 'logout' or something like this:

manager.DestroyFasthttp(*fasthttp.Request)

Note that, now, you can use both fasthttp and net/http within the same sessions manager(.New) instance! So now, you can share sessions between a net/http app and valyala/fasthttp app

GobEncode accepts a store and writes as series of bytes to the "w" writer.

func GobSerialize

func GobSerialize(store Store) ([]byte, error)

type Action uint32

Action reports the specific action that the memory store sends to the database.

const (
	// ActionCreate occurs when add a key-value pair
	// on the database session entry for the first time.
	ActionCreate Action = iota
	// ActionInsert occurs when add a key-value pair
	// on the database session entry.

	// on the database session entry.
	ActionUpdate
	// ActionDelete occurs when delete a specific value from
	// a specific key from the database session entry.
	ActionDelete
	// ActionClear occurs when clear all values but keep the database session entry.
	ActionClear
	// ActionDestroy occurs when destroy,
	// destroy is the action when clear all and remove the session entry from the database.
	ActionDestroy
)

type Config

type Config struct {
	// Cookie string, the session's client cookie name, for example: "mysessionid"
	//
	// Defaults to "gosessionid"
	Cookie string

	// CookieSecureTLS set to true if server is running over TLS

}

Config is the configuration for sessions. Please review it well before using sessions.

func (Config) Validate

func (c Config) Validate() Config

Validate corrects missing fields configuration fields and returns the right configuration

type Database

type Database interface {
	Load(sid string) RemoteStore
	Sync(p SyncPayload)
}

Database is the interface which all session databases should implement By design it doesn't support any type of cookie session like other frameworks. I want to protect you, believe me. The scope of the database is to store somewhere the sessions in order to keep them after restarting the server, nothing more.

Synchronization are made automatically, you can register more than one session database but the first non-empty Load return data will be used as the session values.

Note: Expiration on Load is up to the database, meaning that: the database can decide how to retrieve and parse the expiration datetime

I'll try to explain you the flow:

.Start -> if session database attached then load from that storage and save to the memory, otherwise load from memory. The load from database is done once on the initialize of each session. .Get (important) -> load from memory,

if database attached then it already loaded the values
from database on the .Start action, so it will
retrieve the data from the memory (fast)

.Set -> set to the memory, if database attached then update the storage .Delete -> clear from memory, if database attached then update the storage .Destroy -> destroy from memory and client cookie,

if database attached then update the storage with empty values,
empty values means delete the storage with that specific session id.

Using everything else except memory is slower than memory but database is fetched once at each session and its updated on every Set, Delete, Destroy at call-time. All other external sessions managers out there work different than Iris one as far as I know, you may find them more suited to your application, it depends.

type Entry

type Entry struct {
	Key      string
	ValueRaw interface{}
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Entry is the entry of the context storage Store - .Values()

func (Entry) Value

func (e Entry) Value() interface{}

Value returns the value of the entry, respects the immutable.

type LifeTime

type LifeTime struct {
	// Remember, tip for the future:
	// No need of gob.Register, because we embed the time.Time.
	// And serious bug which has a result of me spending my whole evening:
	// Because of gob encoding it doesn't encodes/decodes the other fields if time.Time is embedded
	// (this should be a bug(go1.9-rc1) or not. We don't care atm)
	time.Time
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

LifeTime controls the session expiration datetime.

func (*LifeTime) Begin

func (lt *LifeTime) Begin(d time.Duration, onExpire func())

Begin will begin the life based on the time.Now().Add(d). Use `Continue` to continue from a stored time(database-based session does that).

func (*LifeTime) ExpireNow

func (lt *LifeTime) ExpireNow()

ExpireNow reduce the lifetime completely.

func (*LifeTime) HasExpired

func (lt *LifeTime) HasExpired() bool

HasExpired reports whether "lt" represents is expired.

func (*LifeTime) Revive

func (lt *LifeTime) Revive(onExpire func())

Revive will continue the life based on the stored Time. Other words that could be used for this func are: Continue, Restore, Resc.

func (*LifeTime) Shift

func (lt *LifeTime) Shift(d time.Duration)

Shift resets the lifetime based on "d".

type RemoteStore

type RemoteStore struct {
	// Values contains the whole memory store, this store

RemoteStore is a helper which is a wrapper for the store, it can be used as the session "table" which will be saved to the session database.

func DecodeRemoteStore

func DecodeRemoteStore(b []byte) (store RemoteStore, err error)

DecodeRemoteStore accepts a series of bytes and returns the store.

func (RemoteStore) Serialize

func (s RemoteStore) Serialize() ([]byte, error)

Serialize returns the byte representation of this RemoteStore.

type Session

type Session struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Session should expose the Sessions's end-user API. It is the session's storage controller which you can save or retrieve values based on a key.

This is what will be returned when sess := sessions.Start().

func Start

func Start(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) *Session

Start starts the session for the particular request.

func StartFasthttp

func StartFasthttp(ctx *fasthttp.RequestCtx) *Session

StartFasthttp starts the session for the particular request.

func (*Session) Clear

func (s *Session) Clear()

Clear removes all entries.

func (*Session) ClearFlashes added in v0.0.7

func (s *Session) ClearFlashes()

func (*Session) GetFlash added in v0.0.7

func (s *Session) GetFlash(key string) interface{}

GetFlash returns a stored flash message based on its "key" which will be removed on the next request.

To check for flash messages we use the HasFlash() Method and to obtain the flash message we use the GetFlash() Method. There is also a method GetFlashes() to fetch all the messages.

Fetching a message deletes it from the session. This means that a message is meant to be displayed only on the first page served to the user.

func (*Session) GetFlashString added in v0.0.7

func (s *Session) GetFlashString(key string) string

GetFlashString same as GetFlash but returns as string, if nil then returns an empty string.

func (*Session) GetFlashes added in v0.0.7

func (s *Session) GetFlashes() map[string]interface{}

GetFlashes returns all flash messages as map[string](key) and interface{} value NOTE: this will cause at remove all current flash messages on the next request of the same user.

func (*Session) GetFloat32 added in v0.0.6

func (s *Session) GetFloat32(key string) (float32, error)

GetFloat32 same as Get but returns as float32, if not found then returns -1 and an error.

func (*Session) PeekFlash

func (s *Session) PeekFlash(key string) interface{}

PeekFlash returns a stored flash message based on its "key". Unlike GetFlash, this will keep the message valid for the next requests, until GetFlashes or GetFlash("key").

func (*Session) Set

func (s *Session) Set(key string, value interface{})

Set fills the session with an entry"value", based on its "key".

func (*Session) SetFlash added in v0.0.7

func (s *Session) SetFlash(key string, value interface{})

SetFlash sets a flash message by its key.

A flash message is used in order to keep a message in session through one or several requests of the same user. It is removed from session after it has been displayed to the user. Flash messages are usually used in combination with HTTP redirections, because in this case there is no view, so messages can only be displayed in the request that follows redirection.

A flash message has a name and a content (AKA key and value). It is an entry of an associative array. The name is a string: often "notice", "success", or "error", but it can be anything. The content is usually a string. You can put HTML tags in your message if you display it raw. You can also set the message value to a number or an array: it will be serialized and kept in session like a string.

Flash messages can be set using the SetFlash() Method For example, if you would like to inform the user that his changes were successfully saved, you could add the following line to your Handler:

SetFlash("success", "Data saved!");

In this example we used the key 'success'. If you want to define more than one flash messages, you will have to use different keys.

func (*Session) SetImmutable

func (s *Session) SetImmutable(key string, value interface{})

SetImmutable fills the session with an entry "value", based on its "key". Unlike `Set`, the output value cannot be changed by the caller later on (when .Get) An Immutable entry should be only changed with a `SetImmutable`, simple `Set` will not work if the entry was immutable, for your own safety. Use it consistently, it's far slower than `Set`. Read more about muttable and immutable go types: https://stackoverflow.com/a/8021081
