WSGI sessions implentation (session id in a cookie).

Project Description

WSGISession provides an easy way to deal with sessions in any WSGI compilant application. This middleware is useful always you want to store user sessions of a user, understanding that this user will store the session id in a cookie. It’s up to you how to save and retrieve the session object.

In order to do so, we offer the middleware and the session object, but you need to provide the session factory object, whose role is to save and retrieve sessions from wherever they are. Here’s an example:

#!/usr/bin/env python

from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server from wsgisession import SessionMiddleware

class ExampleFactory(object):
def load(self, id=None):
session = Session() # whatever needed to retireve session object = {‘dummy’: ‘key’} = ‘123’ return session
def save(self, session):
# save the, possibly generating return
def wrapped_app(environ, start_response):
session = environ.get(‘wsgisession’) session[‘counter’] = session.get(‘counter’, 0) + 1 start_response(‘200 OK’, [(‘Content-Type’, ‘text/html’)]) return ‘Visited %s timesn’ % session[‘counter’]

factory = ExampleFactory() app = SessionMiddleware(wrapped_app, factory)

if __name__ == ‘__main__’:
httpd = make_server(‘localhost’, 8080, app) httpd.serve_forever()
