This module is a replacement module for Catalyst::Plugin::Session::*
which stores the Catalyst session in a browser cookie. This has two
advantages: its easier to configure than Catalyst::Plugin::Session::*
and sessions require no disk IO.
The session is encrypted using Rijndael using the key you provide in the
configuration, which should be unique to your application.
More about Rijndael: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rijndael
If you do not set an expires value in the configuration, then a session
cookie is used. You should set a value to make the cookie persist through
closing the browser: use +1h for one hour, +2d for two days, +3M
for three months and +4y for four years.
The cookied is named after your application, with _cookiedsession
appended to the end. Pass in a name value in the configuration to
Note that the cookie is limited in size to 4096 bytes. Keep your sessions
very small. Alternatively please provide a patch which works along the
lines of CGI::Cookie::Splitter.
