Mojolicious::Sessions - Signed cookie based session manager
use Mojolicious::Sessions; my $sessions = Mojolicious::Sessions->new; $sessions->cookie_name('myapp'); $sessions->default_expiration(86400);
Mojolicious::Sessions manages simple signed cookie based sessions for Mojolicious. All data gets serialized with Mojo::JSON and stored Base64 encoded on the client-side, but is protected from unwanted changes with a HMAC-SHA1 signature.
Mojolicious::Sessions implements the following attributes.
my $domain = $sessions->cookie_domain; $sessions = $sessions->cookie_domain('.example.com');
Domain for session cookies, not defined by default.
my $name = $sessions->cookie_name; $sessions = $sessions->cookie_name('session');
Name for session cookies, defaults to
my $path = $sessions->cookie_path; $sessions = $sessions->cookie_path('/foo');
Path for session cookies, defaults to
my $time = $sessions->default_expiration; $sessions = $sessions->default_expiration(3600);
Default time for sessions to expire in seconds from now, defaults to
3600. The expiration timeout gets refreshed for every request. Setting the value to
0 will allow sessions to persist until the browser window is closed, this can have security implications though. For more control you can also use the
expires session values.
# Expiration date in seconds from now (persists between requests) $c->session(expiration => 604800); # Expiration date as absolute epoch time (only valid for one request) $c->session(expires => time + 604800); # Delete whole session by setting an expiration date in the past $c->session(expires => 1);
my $bool = $sessions->secure; $sessions = $sessions->secure($bool);
Set the secure flag on all session cookies, so that browsers send them only over HTTPS connections.
