Express v4.0.0 does not include –sessions command or cmd but prior versions do

Since I’m not intimately familiar with Express, can anybody tell me why v4.0.0 doesn’t include –sessions as a command?

When I use version 3.4.8 this command is supported, but when I grab the newest version, I run into 2 issues:

  • Not able to install node_xslt on node.js
  • npm doesn't work with node v0.8.5?
  • Change URL after POST using ExpressJS
  • How to expose 'require' to the browser when using browserify from within gulp?
  • When do async methods throw and how do you catch them?
  • Sorting on elastic search with node js
    1. The Express.cmd isn’t generated (I’m running on Win8.1 x64) – Therefore I had to run npm install express-generator
    2. No included support for the –sessions command

    I might also be missing something and this was an intentional separation done by the Express team?

  • Failed requests from Azure topic/subscription at random
  • Where is my client side
  • node.js, express - executing mysql queries one after another within loops in a synchronous way
  • Why would I need template engines like Jade or EJS on the backend?
  • Mongoose difference between .save() and using update()

    Connect middleware is no longer bundled with express. You have to install the session middleware yourself in express 4.x. For a decent guide on updating see this post.

    %npm install express-session


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

    and replace



    app.use(session({secret: 'keyboard cat', cookie: { maxAge: 100000 }}));
