Gin middleware for session management with multi-backend support:

Usage

Start using it

Download and install it:

go get github.com/gin-contrib/sessions

Import it in your code:

import "github.com/gin-contrib/sessions"

Basic Examples

single session

package main

import (
  "github.com/gin-contrib/sessions"
  "github.com/gin-contrib/sessions/cookie"
  "github.com/gin-gonic/gin"
)

func main() {
  r := gin.Default()
  store := cookie.NewStore([]byte("secret"))
  r.Use(sessions.Sessions("mysession", store))

  r.GET("/hello", func(c *gin.Context) {
    session := sessions.Default(c)

    if session.Get("hello") != "world" {
      session.Set("hello", "world")
      session.Save()
    }

    c.JSON(200, gin.H{"hello": session.Get("hello")})
  })
  r.Run(":8000")
}

multiple sessions

package main

import (
  "github.com/gin-contrib/sessions"
  "github.com/gin-contrib/sessions/cookie"
  "github.com/gin-gonic/gin"
)

func main() {
  r := gin.Default()
  store := cookie.NewStore([]byte("secret"))
  sessionNames := []string{"a", "b"}
  r.Use(sessions.SessionsMany(sessionNames, store))

  r.GET("/hello", func(c *gin.Context) {
    sessionA := sessions.DefaultMany(c, "a")
    sessionB := sessions.DefaultMany(c, "b")

    if sessionA.Get("hello") != "world!" {
      sessionA.Set("hello", "world!")
      sessionA.Save()
    }

    if sessionB.Get("hello") != "world?" {
      sessionB.Set("hello", "world?")
      sessionB.Save()
    }

    c.JSON(200, gin.H{
      "a": sessionA.Get("hello"),
      "b": sessionB.Get("hello"),
    })
  })
  r.Run(":8000")
}

  r.GET("/incr", func(c *gin.Context) {
    session := sessions.Default(c)
    var count int
    v := session.Get("count")
    if v == nil {
      count = 0
    } else {
      count = v.(int)
      count++
    }
    session.Set("count", count)
