mongodb as Django sessions backend

Project Description


  • fast NoSQL Django sessions backend
  • invalidation via TTL


run pip install django-mongo-sessions

set mongo_sessions.session as session engine:

SESSION_ENGINE = 'mongo_sessions.session'


there is two ways to setup mongodb connection at

first, if already have mongo connection, like:

import pymongo
from pymongo import MongoClient
connection = MongoClient()
MONGO_CLIENT = connection.your_database
MONGO_SESSIONS_COLLECTION = 'mongo_sessions' # default option

second, if you need to connect to mongodb, like:

MONGO_PORT = 27017
MONGO_HOST = 'localhost'
MONGO_DB_NAME = 'test'

# all this settings are defaults, you can skip any

expireAfterSeconds index value by default is SESSION_COOKIE_AGE you can change:

MONGO_SESSIONS_TTL = 60 * 60 # one hour

be sure, that you know what are you doing with it, SESSION_COOKIE_AGE will get different expiration time

every time you change one of this values, expireAfterSeconds index will be dropped and then will be indexed with ensureIndex again, be careful here

it is good way to change expireAfterSeconds only by 1 running instance
