Flask Multiple Sessions Interface (combine multiple sessions with different backends)

Project description

Flask Multiple Sessions Interface

combine multiple sessions with different backends

Install it with:

pip install flask-session-plus

For Flask Multi Session to work, all you have to do is define all your sessions on a simple configuration variable called SESSION_CONFIG, and init the extension.

Session Configuration:

        'cookie_name': 'csrf',
        'session_type': 'secure_cookie',
        'session_fields': ['csrf_token'],
        'cookie_name': 'session',
        'session_type': 'firestore',
        'session_fields': ['user_id', 'user_data'],
    # ... as many sessions as you want 

Caution: session_fields can collide if they have the same meaning (aka: value). If not, you must use different field names.

The above configuration will define two session interfaces. The first one is a secure cookie with 'csrf' name that will store the 'csrf_token' field.

The second one is a FirestoreSessionInterface that will set a cookie named 'session' with a single session id. The 'user_id' and 'user_data' will be stored in the Google Cloud Firestore backend.

Finally register it as an extension:

from flask_session_plus import Session

app = Flask(__name__)



from flask_session_plus import Session

app = Flask(__name__)

session = Session()
