15 downloads in the last month is a library for using express session for authorization of Tested with 0.9.10 and express 3


``` js express... var express = require('express') var RedisStore = require('connect-redis')(express); var redisStore = new RedisStore( { host:config.redis.address, port: config.redis.port }); var cookieParser = express.cookieParser('supersecret'); app.configure(function(){ ... // your configurations app.use(cookieParser); app.use(express.session({store: redisStore})); ... // your configurations });

var authFunction = require('./').createAuthFunction(cookieParser, redisStore);
io.set('authorization', authFunction);


There were a lot of inaccurate blog posts of how to use express (v.3) sessions with, so I created this simple library.
