Oak Sessions

Use cookie-based web sessions with the Oak framework. Supports flash messages - session data that is deleted after it's read.

Usage

import { Application, Router } from "https://deno.land/x/oak/mod.ts";
import { Session } from "https://deno.land/x/oak_sessions/mod.ts";

type AppState = {
    session: Session
}
const app = new Application<AppState>()

app.addEventListener('error', (evt) => {
    console.log(evt.error)
})

const router = new Router<AppState>();

// Instantiate session
const session = new Session()

// Apply sessions to your Oak application. You can also apply the middleware to specific routes instead of the whole app.
app.use(session.initMiddleware())

router.post('/login', async (ctx) => {
    const form = await ctx.request.body({type: 'form'}).value
    if(form.get('password') === 'correct') {
        // Set persistent data in the session
        await ctx.state.session.set('email', form.get('email'))
        await ctx.state.session.set('failed-login-attempts', null)
        // Set flash data in the session. This will be removed the first time it's accessed with get
        await ctx.state.session.flash('message', 'Login successful')
    } else {
        const failedLoginAttempts = (await ctx.state.session.get('failed-login-attempts') || 0) as number
        await ctx.state.session.set('failed-login-attempts', failedLoginAttempts+1)
        await ctx.state.session.flash('error', 'Incorrect username or password')
    }
    ctx.response.redirect('/')
})

router.post('/logout', async (ctx) => {
    // Clear all session data
    await ctx.state.session.deleteSession()
    ctx.response.redirect('/')
})

router.get("/", async (ctx) => {
    const message = await ctx.state.session.get('message') || ''
    const error = await ctx.state.session.get('error') || ''
    const failedLoginAttempts = await ctx.state.session.get('failed-login-attempts')
    const email = await ctx.state.session.get('email')
    ctx.response.body = `<!DOCTYPE html>
    <body>
        <p>
            ${message}
        </p>
        <p>
            ${error}
        </p>
        <p>
            ${failedLoginAttempts ? `Failed login attempts: ${failedLoginAttempts}` : ''}
        </p>

        ${email ? 
        `<form id="logout" action="/logout" method="post">
            <button name="logout" type="submit">Log out ${email}</button>
        </form>`
        : 
        `<form id="login" action="/login" method="post">
            <p>
                <input id="email" name="email" type="text" placeholder="you@email.com">
            </p>
            <p>
                <input id="password" name="password" type="password" placeholder="password">
            </p>
            <button name="login" type="submit">Log in</button>
        </form>` 
    }
    </body>`;
})

app.use(router.routes());
app.use(router.allowedMethods());

app.listen({ port: 8002 });

Storage

You can specify the storage layer used to store session data. Here are the supported storage layers:

  • Memory: Stores all session data within memory. Good for debugging and testing, but should not be used in production.
  • Cookie: Stores all session data inside of an (optionally) encrypted cookie. The simplest implementation that doesn't require a backend and is suitable for production. The disadvantage is cookies can only store a pretty limited amount of data (about 4KB in most browsers) so only use if you don't need much session data.
  • SQLite: Uses a SQLite database to store session data. Internally, the deno sqlite library is used to interact with a SQLite database. Requires filesystem access.
  • Postgres: Uses a Postgres database to store session data. Internally, the deno postgres.js library is used to interact with a Postgres database. Requires a separate Postgres server.
  • Redis: Uses a Redis database to store session data. Internally, the deno redis library is used to interact with a Redis database. Requires a separate Redis server.
  • Mongo: Uses a Mongo database to store session data. Internally, the deno mongo library is used to interact with MongoDB. Requires a separate MongoDB server.
  • Webdis: Uses a Webdis endpoint to store session data. Webdis is a Redis server which allows you to use Redis with an HTTP endpoint. This is ideal for serverless environments, or anywhere that only HTTP endpoints can be accessed (such as Deno Deploy). Requires a Webdis URL.

By default, MemoryStorage is the storage driver, but you can (and should in production) use a more robust and persistent storage driver.

import { Application, Router } from "https://deno.land/x/oak/mod.ts";

const app = new Application();
const store = new CookieStore('very-secret-key')

const app = new Application();
const sqlite = new DB('./database.db') 
// Pass DB instance into a new SqliteStore. Optionally add a custom table name as second string argument, default is 'sessions'
const store = new SqliteStore(sqlite, 'optional_custom_table_name')

// Attach sessions to middleware. 
const session = new Session(store);

// ...

const sql = postgres({
    host: 'localhost',
    port: 26257,
    database: 'defaultdb',
    user: 'root',
    password: '',
})

// Pass postgres connection into a new PostgresStore. Optionally add a custom table name as second string argument, default is 'sessions'
const store = new PostgresStore(sql, 'optional_custom_table_name')

// Initialize sessions table. Will create a table if one doesn't exist already.
await store.initSessionsTable()

// Attach sessions to middleware
const session = new Session(store)

// ...

Redis

import { Application, Router } from "https://deno.land/x/oak/mod.ts";
import { Session, RedisStore } from "https://deno.land/x/oak_sessions/mod.ts";

// import the Redis library
import { connect } from 'https://deno.land/x/redis@v0.25.0/mod.ts'

const app = new Application();

// Create a redis connection
const redis = await connect({
    hostname: '0.0.0.0',
    port: 6379
})

// pass redis connection into a new RedisStore. Optionally add a second string argument for a custom database prefix, default is 'session_'
const store = new RedisStore(redis)

// Attach sessions to middleware
const session = new Session(store);

// ...

Mongo

import { Application, Router } from "https://deno.land/x/oak/mod.ts";
import { Session, MongoStore } from "https://deno.land/x/oak_sessions/mod.ts";

const app = new Application();

// Create mongo connection or use an existing one
const client = new MongoClient();
const db = client.database('default');

// Pass mongo connection into a new MongoStore. Optionally add a custom collection name as second string argument, default is 'sessions'
const store = new MongoStore(db, 'optional_custom_collection_name');

// Attach sessions to middleware
const session = new Session(store);

// ...

Webdis

import { Application, Router } from "https://deno.land/x/oak/mod.ts";

const app = new Application();
const store = new WebdisStore({
    url: 'http://127.0.0.1:7379',
});

// Attach sessions to middleware
const session = new Session(store);

// ...

More stores will be added over time.
