The memory session storage is a built-in storage adapter that saves your session data in RAM using a regular JavaScript Map object. If you use this storage adapter, all sessions will be lost when your process terminates or restarts. Hence, you should only use it for short-lived data that is not important to persist.


You can use this function to transform an existing storage adapter, and add more features to it. Currently, you can add session migrations and expiry dates.

This is an advanced function of grammY.

Session middleware provides a persistent data storage for your bot. You can use it to let your bot remember any data you want, for example the messages it sent or received in the past. This is done by attaching session data to every chat. The stored data is then provided on the context object under ctx.session.
