mongodb as Django sessions backend

Project description

https://api.travis-ci.org/hellysmile/django-mongo-sessions.png

features

  • fast NoSQL Django sessions backend
  • invalidation via TTL

installation

run pip install django-mongo-sessions

set mongo_sessions.session as session engine:

SESSION_ENGINE = 'mongo_sessions.session'

settings

there is two ways to setup mongodb connection at settings.py

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'
MONGO_DB_USER = False
MONGO_DB_PASSWORD = False
MONGO_SESSIONS_COLLECTION = 'mongo_sessions'

# 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

tests

pip install tox
tox
