Dancer2::Session::YAML - YAML-file-based session backend for Dancer2
This module implements a session engine based on YAML files. Session are stored in a session_dir as YAML files. The idea behind this module was to provide a human-readable session storage for the developer.
This backend is intended to be used in development environments, when digging inside a session can be useful.
This backend can perfectly be used in production environments, but two things should be kept in mind: The content of the session files is in plain text, and the session files should be purged by a CRON job.
The setting session should be set to
YAML in order to use this session engine in a Dancer2 application.
Files will be stored to the value of the setting
session_dir, whose default value is
Here is an example configuration that use this session engine and stores session files in /tmp/dancer-sessions
session: "YAML" engines: session: YAML: session_dir: "/tmp/dancer-sessions" cookie_duration: 3600 # Default cookie timeout in seconds
This module depends on YAML.
See Dancer2::Core::Session for details about session usage in route handlers.
