cloud-datastore-session v0.1.0

Google Cloud Datastore session store for Express/Connect

Google Cloud Datastore Sessions

cloud-datastore-session is a Express session storage backed by Google Cloud Datastore.

Note: Cloud Datastore is a persistent, distributed, transactional database. Often, it's more appropriate to choose a different storage solution for sessions such as Memcache or Redis as their designs offer much faster operation in this use case.


$ npm install --save cloud-datastore-session


You must have a Google Cloud project and credentials. See gcloud node's documentation on setting up authorization.

Usage Example

var express = require('express');
var session = require('express-session');
var app = express();

var DatastoreStore = require('cloud-datastore-session')(session);

  store: new DatastoreStore({
    dataset: gcloud.datastore.dataset({
        prefix: 'express-sessions',
        projectId: 'my-project-id',
        keyFilename: './key.json'
  secret: 'my-secret'
