  • GitHub repo session

    Simple session middleware for Express (by expressjs)

    Project mention: JSON web tokens are NOT meant for authenticating the same user repeatedly: Use session tokens instead | dev.to | 2021-04-10

    This problem can be solved by using a "session store" library such as connect-redis (see express-session's documentation for the list of session store libraries for Express.js). The idea is to keep session tokens in a dedicated database, and each time the user makes an HTTP request with their session token, the server receiving the request will consult this database to learn whether the request comes from the authenticated user or not. Performance suffers consequently, as retrieving data from a database always takes some time.

  • GitHub repo cors
