pyramid_redis_sessions is a server-side session library for the Pyramid Web Application Development Framework, using Redis for storage. This library implements the Pyramid ISession interface.
Why Use Redis for Your Sessions
Redis is fast, widely deployed, and stable. It works best when your data can fit in memory, but is configurable and still quite fast when you need to sync to disk. There are plenty of existing benchmarks, opinion pieces, and articles if you want to learn about its use cases. But for pyramid_redis_sessions, I'm interested in it specifically for these reasons:
- it really is bleeping fast (choose your own expletive)
- it has a very handy built-in mechanism for setting expirations on keys
- the watch mechanism is a nice, lightweight alternative to full transactions
- session data tends to be important but not mission critical, but if it is...
- it has configurable persistence
To get up and running as fast as possible, check out the Getting Started guide.
