NAME
Dancer::Session::YAML - YAML-file-based session backend for Dancer DESCRIPTION
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 transparent session storage for the developer. This backend is intended to be used in development environments, when looking inside a session can be useful. It's not recommended to use this session engine in production environments. CONFIGURATION
The setting session should be set to "YAML" in order to use this session engine in a Dancer application. Files will be stored to the value of the setting "session_dir", whose default value is "appdir/sessions". Here is an example configuration that use this session engine and stores session files in /tmp/dancer-sessions session: "YAML" session_dir: "/tmp/dancer-sessions" METHODS
reset to avoid checking if the sessions directory exists everytime a new session is created, this module maintains a cache of session directories it has already created. "reset" wipes this cache out, forcing a test for existence of the sessions directory next time a session is created. It takes no argument. This is particulary useful if you want to remove the sessions directory on the system where your app is running, but you want this session engine to continue to work without having to restart your application. DEPENDENCY
This module depends on YAML. AUTHOR

NAME
Dancer::Session::Cookie - Encrypted cookie-based session backend for Dancer SYNOPSIS
Your config.yml: session: "cookie" session_cookie_key: "this random key IS NOT very random" DESCRIPTION
This module implements a session engine for sessions stored entirely in cookies. Usually only session id is stored in cookies and the session data itself is saved in some external storage, e.g. database. This module allows one to avoid using external storage at all. Since server cannot trust any data returned by client in cookies, this module uses cryptography to ensure integrity and also secrecy. The data your application stores in sessions is completely protected from both tampering and analysis on the client-side. CONFIGURATION
The setting session should be set to "cookie" in order to use this session engine in a Dancer application. See Dancer::Config. A mandatory setting is needed as well: session_cookie_key, which should contain a random string of at least 16 characters (shorter keys are not cryptographically strong using AES in CBC mode). Here is an example configuration to use in your config.yml: session: "cookie" session_cookie_key: "kjsdf07234hjf0sdkflj12*&(@*jk" Compromising session_cookie_key will disclose session data to clients and proxies or eavesdroppers and will also allow tampering, for example session theft. So, your config.yml should be kept at least as secure as your database passwords or even more. Also, changing session_cookie_key will have an effect of immediate invalidation of all sessions issued with the old value of key. session_cookie_path can be used to control the path of the session cookie. The default is /. The global session_secure setting is honoured and a secure (https only) cookie will be used if set. DEPENDENCY
