Transparent server-side session support for flask
.. image:: https://travis-ci.org/mbr/flask-kvsession.svg?branch=master :target: https://travis-ci.org/mbr/flask-kvsession
Flask-KVSession is an
session replacement for
Flask <http://flask.pocoo.org>_'s signed
client-based session management. Instead of storing data on the client, only a
securely generated ID is stored on the client, while the actual session data
resides on the server.
This has two major advantages:
Other things are possible with server side session that are impossible with clients side sessions, like inspecting and manipulating data in absence of the client.
Flask-KVSession uses the
for storing session data on a variety of backends, including
memcached <http://memcached.org>, SQL databases using
mongoDB <http://www.mongodb.org/>_ or
just flat files.
Integration with Flask is seamless, once the extension is loaded for a Flask application, it transparently replaces Flask's own Session management. Any application working with sessions should work the same with Flask-KVSession (if it does not, file a bug!).
