django-redis-sessions
=======================
Redis database backend for your sessions


[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/martinrusev/django-redis-sessions.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/martinrusev/django-redis-sessions)



- [Installation](#installation)
- [Available Settings](#available-settings)
- [Changelog](#changelog)


Installation
============

* Run `pip install django-redis-sessions` or alternatively download the tarball and run `python setup.py install`,

For Django < 1.4 run `pip install django-redis-sessions==0.3`

* Set `redis_sessions.session` as your session engine, like so:


```
SESSION_ENGINE = 'redis_sessions.session'
```

Available Settings
============

```
SESSION_REDIS = {
'host': 'localhost'
'port': 6379
'db': 0,
'password': 'password',
'prefix': 'session',
'socket_timeout': 1
}
```

If you prefer domain socket connection, you can just add this line instead of HOST and PORT.

```
SESSION_REDIS = {
'unix_domain_socket_path': '/var/run/redis/redis.sock',
'db': 0,
'password': 'password',
'prefix': 'session',
'socket_timeout': 1
}
```



### Redis Sentinel

```
SESSION_REDIS_SENTINEL_LIST = [(host, port), (host, port), (host, port)]
SESSION_REDIS_SENTINEL_MASTER_ALIAS = 'sentinel-master'
```



### Redis Pool (Horizontal partitioning)


Splits sessions between Redis instances based on the session key.
You can configure the connection type for each Redis instance in the pool (host/port, unix socket, redis url).

```
SESSION_REDIS = {
'prefix': 'session',
'socket_timeout': 1
'retry_on_timeout': False,
'pool': [{
'host': 'localhost3',
'port': 6379,
'db': 0,
'password': None,
'unix_domain_socket_path': None,
'url': None,
'weight': 1
},
{
'host': 'localhost2',
'port': 6379,
'db': 0,
'password': None,
'unix_domain_socket_path': None,
'url': None,
'weight': 1
},
{
'host': 'localhost1',
'port': 6379,
'db': 0,
'password': None,
'unix_domain_socket_path': None,
'url': None,
'weight': 1
}]
}
```



Tests
============


```
$ pip install -r dev_requirements.txt
# Make sure you have redis running on localhost:6379
$ nosetests -vv
```
