sessions for aiohttp.web

Project description

aiohttp_session

https://travis-ci.org/aio-libs/aiohttp-session.svg?branch=master https://codecov.io/github/aio-libs/aiohttp-session/coverage.svg?branch=master https://readthedocs.org/projects/aiohttp-session/badge/?version=latest

The library provides sessions for aiohttp.web.

Usage

The library allows to store user-specific data into session object.

The session object has dict-like interface (operations like session[key] = value, value = session[key] etc. are present).

Before processing session in web-handler you have to register session middleware in aiohttp.web.Application.

A trivial usage example:

import asyncio
import time
import base64
from cryptography import fernet
from aiohttp import web
from aiohttp_session import setup, get_session, session_middleware
from aiohttp_session.cookie_storage import EncryptedCookieStorage

async def handler(request):
    session = await get_session(request)
    last_visit = session['last_visit'] if 'last_visit' in session else None
    text = 'Last visited: {}'.format(last_visit)
    return web.Response(body=text.encode('utf-8'))

def make_app():
    app = web.Application()
    # secret_key must be 32 url-safe base64-encoded bytes
    fernet_key = fernet.Fernet.generate_key()
    secret_key = base64.urlsafe_b64decode(fernet_key)
    setup(app, EncryptedCookieStorage(secret_key))
    app.router.add_route('GET', '/', handler)
    return app

web.run_app(make_app())

All storages uses HTTP Cookie named AIOHTTP_COOKIE_SESSION for storing data.

Available session storages are:

  • aiohttp_session.SimpleCookieStorage() – keeps session data as plain JSON string in cookie body. Use the storage only for testing purposes, it’s very non-secure.

  • aiohttp_session.cookie_storage.EncryptedCookieStorage(secret_key) – stores session data into cookies as SimpleCookieStorage but encodes it via AES cipher. secrect_key is a bytes key for AES encryption/decryption, the length should be 32 bytes.

    Requires cryptography library:

    $ pip install aiohttp_session[secure]
    
  • aiohttp_session.redis_storage.RedisStorage(redis_pool) – stores JSON-ed data in redis, keeping only the redis key (random UUID) in the cookie. redis_pool is aioredis pool object, created by yield from aioredis.create_pool(...) call.

    Requires aioredis library:

    $ pip install aiohttp_session[aioredis]
