XORM backend for gorilla sessions

go get github.com/lafriks/xormstore


// initialize and setup cleanup
store := xormstore.New(engine, []byte("secret"))
// db cleanup every hour
// close quit channel to stop cleanup
quit := make(chan struct{})
go store.PeriodicCleanup(1*time.Hour, quit)
// in HTTP handler
func handlerFunc(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
  session, err := store.Get(r, "session")
  session.Values["user_id"] = 123
  store.Save(r, w, session)
  http.Error(w, "", http.StatusOK)

For more details see xormstore godoc documentation.


Just sqlite3 tests:

go test

All databases using docker:


If docker is not local (docker-machine etc):

DOCKER_IP=$(docker-machine ip dev) ./test

Package xormstore is a XORM backend for gorilla sessions

Simplest form:

store, err := xormstore.New(engine, []byte("secret-hash-key"))

All options:

store, err := xormstore.NewOptions(
	engine, // *xorm.Engine
		TableName: "sessions",  // "sessions" is default
		SkipCreateTable: false, // false is default
	[]byte("secret-hash-key"),      // 32 or 64 bytes recommended, required
	[]byte("secret-encyption-key")) // nil, 16, 24 or 32 bytes, optional

if err != nil {
	// xormstore can not be initialized

// some more settings, see sessions.Options
store.SessionOpts.Secure = true
store.SessionOpts.HttpOnly = true
store.SessionOpts.MaxAge = 60 * 60 * 24 * 60

If you want periodic cleanup of expired sessions:

quit := make(chan struct{})
go store.PeriodicCleanup(1*time.Hour, quit)

For API to use in HTTP handlers see https://github.com/gorilla/sessions
