Rest Session Backend For Django

Project Description

Rest based sessions backend for Django.

Prerequisites

This backend relies on rest-sessions for storing and managing sessions. Npm rest-sessions needs to be running and accessible at SESSION_URL.

Requirements

This package relies on the requests package. Make sure it is installed in your Django project:
pip install requests

Install

Install with pip:
pip install django-rest-sessions

Configure

After installing django-rest-sessions you must add a few settings to your settings.py

  • Add rest_sessions as your session engine:

    SESSION_ENGINE = 'rest_sessions'
    
  • Add django.contrib.sessions.middleware.SessionMiddleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES

  • Add the name of the session cookie for Django’s session middleware:

    SESSION_COOKIE_NAME = 'session-cookie'
    
  • Add the path where npm rest-sessions is running:

    SESSION_URL = 'example.com/path/to/rest-sessions'
    
  • Add the app that is used in npm rest-sessions:

    SESSION_APP = 'mywebapp'
    

Usage

This session backend is mostly intended to be used in a microservice architecture and thus does not handle creating sessions since npm rest-sessions requires a user key so it would only be possible to create a session within the microservice that takes care of the users for your application. Because this is intended to add sessions to requests to all microservices written in Django it is more applicable to create sessions once a user logs in or requests a web page and use this for services handling RESTful requests that said web page makes.
