This is a session backend for Django that stores sessions in a Tokyo Cabinet database, which communicates via Tokyo Tyrant using the PyTyrant library. Tokyo Cabinet is a key-value store similar to BDB.

Project Description

This is a session backend for Django that stores sessions in a Tokyo Cabinet database, which communicates via Tokyo Tyrant using the PyTyrant library. Tokyo Cabinet is a key-value store similar to BDB.

The advantage to using this over other solutions is that your data is persistent unlike memcached, and Tokyo Cabinet is designed to store key-value data like this, so performance is much closer to that of memcached than with a database.

Installing django-tokyo-sessions

  1. Either download the tarball and run python setup.py install, or simply use easy install or pip like so easy_install django-tokyo-sessions.

  2. Set tokyo_sessions.tokyo as your session engine, like so:

    SESSION_ENGINE = 'tokyo_sessions.tokyo'
    
  3. Add settings describing where to connect to the Tokyo Tyrant database:

    TT_HOST = '127.0.0.1'
    TT_PORT = 1978
    

That’s it. Hopefully this backend gives you all the better performance while still not sacrificing persistence.
