session

Manage browser sessions, cookies, cache, proxy settings, etc.

Process: Main

The session module can be used to create new Session objects.

You can also access the session of existing pages by using the session property of WebContents, or from the session module.

const { BrowserWindow } = require('electron')
const win = new BrowserWindow({ width: 800, height: 600 })win.loadURL('http://github.com')
const ses = win.webContents.sessionconsole.log(ses.getUserAgent())

Methods#

The session module has the following methods:

session.fromPartition(partition[, options])#

  • partition String
  • options Object (optional)
    • cache Boolean - Whether to enable cache.

Returns Session - A session instance from partition string. When there is an existing Session with the same partition, it will be returned; otherwise a new Session instance will be created with options.

If partition starts with persist:, the page will use a persistent session available to all pages in the app with the same partition. if there is no persist: prefix, the page will use an in-memory session. If the partition is empty then default session of the app will be returned.

To create a Session with options, you have to ensure the Session with the partition has never been used before. There is no way to change the options of an existing Session object.

Properties#

The session module has the following properties:

session.defaultSession#

A Session object, the default session object of the app.

Class: Session#

Get and set properties of a session.

Process: Main
This class is not exported from the 'electron' module. It is only available as a return value of other methods in the Electron API.

You can create a Session object in the session module:

const { session } = require('electron')const ses = session.fromPartition('persist:name')console.log(ses.getUserAgent())

Instance Events#

The following events are available on instances of Session:

Event: 'will-download'#

Returns:

Emitted when Electron is about to download item in webContents.

Calling event.preventDefault() will cancel the download and item will not be available from next tick of the process.

const { session } = require('electron')session.defaultSession.on('will-download', (event, item, webContents) => {  event.preventDefault()  require('got')(item.getURL()).then((response) => {    require('fs').writeFileSync('/somewhere', response.body)  })})

Event: 'extension-loaded'#

Returns:

Emitted after an extension is loaded. This occurs whenever an extension is added to the "enabled" set of extensions. This includes:

  • Extensions being loaded from Session.loadExtension.
  • Extensions being reloaded:

Event: 'extension-unloaded'#

Returns:

Emitted after an extension is unloaded. This occurs when Session.removeExtension is called.

Event: 'extension-ready'#

Returns:

Emitted after an extension is loaded and all necessary browser state is initialized to support the start of the extension's background page.

Event: 'preconnect'#

Returns:

  • event Event
  • preconnectUrl String - The URL being requested for preconnection by the renderer.
  • allowCredentials Boolean - True if the renderer is requesting that the connection include credentials (see the spec for more details.)

Emitted when a render process requests preconnection to a URL, generally due to a resource hint.

Event: 'spellcheck-dictionary-initialized'#

Returns:

  • event Event
  • languageCode String - The language code of the dictionary file

Emitted when a hunspell dictionary file has been successfully initialized. This occurs after the file has been downloaded.

Event: 'spellcheck-dictionary-download-begin'#

Returns:

  • event Event
  • languageCode String - The language code of the dictionary file

Emitted when a hunspell dictionary file starts downloading

Event: 'spellcheck-dictionary-download-success'#

Event: 'spellcheck-dictionary-download-failure'#

Returns:

  • event Event
  • languageCode String - The language code of the dictionary file

Emitted when a hunspell dictionary file download fails. For details on the failure you should collect a netlog and inspect the download request.

Event: 'select-serial-port'#

Returns:

Emitted when a serial port needs to be selected when a call to navigator.serial.requestPort is made. callback should be called with portId to be selected, passing an empty string to callback will cancel the request. Additionally, permissioning on navigator.serial can be managed by using ses.setPermissionCheckHandler(handler) with the serial permission.

const { app, BrowserWindow } = require('electron')
let win = null
app.whenReady().then(() => {  win = new BrowserWindow({    width: 800,    height: 600  })  win.webContents.session.on('select-serial-port', (event, portList, webContents, callback) => {    event.preventDefault()    const selectedPort = portList.find((device) => {      return device.vendorId === '9025' && device.productId === '67'    })    if (!selectedPort) {      callback('')    } else {      callback(selectedPort.portId)    }  })})

Event: 'serial-port-added'#

Returns:

Emitted after navigator.serial.requestPort has been called and select-serial-port has fired if a new serial port becomes available. For example, this event will fire when a new USB device is plugged in.

Event: 'serial-port-removed'#

Returns:

Emitted after navigator.serial.requestPort has been called and select-serial-port has fired if a serial port has been removed. For example, this event will fire when a USB device is unplugged.

Instance Methods#

The following methods are available on instances of Session:

ses.getCacheSize()#

Returns Promise<Integer> - the session's current cache size, in bytes.

ses.clearCache()#

Returns Promise<void> - resolves when the cache clear operation is complete.

Clears the session’s HTTP cache.

ses.clearStorageData([options])#

  • options Object (optional)
    • origin String (optional) - Should follow window.location.origin’s representation scheme://host:port.
    • storages String[] (optional) - The types of storages to clear, can contain: appcache, cookies, filesystem, indexdb, localstorage, shadercache, websql, serviceworkers, cachestorage. If not specified, clear all storage types.

Writes any unwritten DOMStorage data to disk.

ses.setProxy(config)#

  • config Object
    • mode String (optional) - The proxy mode. Should be one of direct, auto_detect, pac_script, fixed_servers or system. If it's unspecified, it will be automatically determined based on other specified options.
      • direct In direct mode all connections are created directly, without any proxy involved.
      • auto_detect In auto_detect mode the proxy configuration is determined by a PAC script that can be downloaded at http://wpad/wpad.dat.
      • pac_script In pac_script mode the proxy configuration is determined by a PAC script that is retrieved from the URL specified in the pacScript. This is the default mode if pacScript is specified.
      • fixed_servers In fixed_servers mode the proxy configuration is specified in proxyRules. This is the default mode if proxyRules is specified.
      • system In system mode the proxy configuration is taken from the operating system. Note that the system mode is different from setting no proxy configuration. In the latter case, Electron falls back to the system settings only if no command-line options influence the proxy configuration.
    • pacScript String (optional) - The URL associated with the PAC file.
    • proxyRules String (optional) - Rules indicating which proxies to use.
    • proxyBypassRules String (optional) - Rules indicating which URLs should bypass the proxy settings.

Returns Promise<void> - Resolves when the proxy setting process is complete.

Sets the proxy settings.

When mode is unspecified, pacScript and proxyRules are provided together, the proxyRules option is ignored and pacScript configuration is applied.

You may need ses.closeAllConnections to close currently in flight connections to prevent pooled sockets using previous proxy from being reused by future requests.

The proxyRules has to follow the rules below:

proxyRules = schemeProxies[";"<schemeProxies>]schemeProxies = [<urlScheme>"="]<proxyURIList>urlScheme = "http" | "https" | "ftp" | "socks"proxyURIList = <proxyURL>[","<proxyURIList>]proxyURL = [<proxyScheme>"://"]<proxyHost>[":"<proxyPort>]

For example:

  • http=foopy:80;ftp=foopy2 - Use HTTP proxy foopy:80 for http:// URLs, and HTTP proxy foopy2:80 for ftp:// URLs.
  • foopy:80 - Use HTTP proxy foopy:80 for all URLs.
  • foopy:80,bar,direct:// - Use HTTP proxy foopy:80 for all URLs, failing over to bar if foopy:80 is unavailable, and after that using no proxy.
  • socks4://foopy - Use SOCKS v4 proxy foopy:1080 for all URLs.
  • http=foopy,socks5://bar.com - Use HTTP proxy foopy for http URLs, and fail over to the SOCKS5 proxy bar.com if foopy is unavailable.
  • http=foopy,direct:// - Use HTTP proxy foopy for http URLs, and use no proxy if foopy is unavailable.
  • http=foopy;socks=foopy2 - Use HTTP proxy foopy for http URLs, and use socks4://foopy2 for all other URLs.

The proxyBypassRules is a comma separated list of rules described below:

  • [ URL_SCHEME "://" ] HOSTNAME_PATTERN [ ":" <port> ]

    Match all hostnames that match the pattern HOSTNAME_PATTERN.

    Examples: "foobar.com", "foobar.com", ".foobar.com", "foobar.com:99", "https://x..y.com:99"

  • "." HOSTNAME_SUFFIX_PATTERN [ ":" PORT ]

    Match a particular domain suffix.

    Examples: ".google.com", ".com", "http://.google.com"

  • [ SCHEME "://" ] IP_LITERAL [ ":" PORT ]

    Match URLs which are IP address literals.

    Examples: "127.0.1", "[0:0::1]", "[::1]", "http://[::1]:99"

  • IP_LITERAL "/" PREFIX_LENGTH_IN_BITS

    Match any URL that is to an IP literal that falls between the given range. IP range is specified using CIDR notation.

    Examples: "192.168.1.1/16", "fefe:13::abc/33".

  • <local>

    Match local addresses. The meaning of <local> is whether the host matches one of: "127.0.0.1", "::1", "localhost".

ses.resolveProxy(url)#

  • url URL

Returns Promise<String> - Resolves with the proxy information for url.

ses.forceReloadProxyConfig()#

        • -2 - Indicates failure.
        • -3 - Uses the verification result from chromium.

Sets the certificate verify proc for session, the proc will be called with proc(request, callback) whenever a server certificate verification is requested. Calling callback(0) accepts the certificate, calling callback(-2) rejects it.

Calling setCertificateVerifyProc(null) will revert back to default certificate verify proc.

const { BrowserWindow } = require('electron')const win = new BrowserWindow()
win.webContents.session.setCertificateVerifyProc((request, callback) => {  const { hostname } = request  if (hostname === 'github.com') {    callback(0)  } else {    callback(-2)  }})

NOTE: The result of this procedure is cached by the network service.

      • requestingUrl String - The last URL the requesting frame loaded
      • isMainFrame Boolean - Whether the frame making the request is the main frame

Sets the handler which can be used to respond to permission requests for the session. Calling callback(true) will allow the permission and callback(false) will reject it. To clear the handler, call setPermissionRequestHandler(null). Please note that you must also implement setPermissionCheckHandler to get complete permission handling. Most web APIs do a permission check and then make a permission request if the check is denied.

const { session } = require('electron')session.fromPartition('some-partition').setPermissionRequestHandler((webContents, permission, callback) => {  if (webContents.getURL() === 'some-host' && permission === 'notifications') {    return callback(false) // denied.  }
  callback(true)})

ses.setPermissionCheckHandler(handler)#

  • handler Function\<Boolean> | null
    • webContents (WebContents | null) - WebContents checking the permission. Please note that if the request comes from a subframe you should use requestingUrl to check the request origin. All cross origin sub frames making permission checks will pass a null webContents to this handler, while certain other permission checks such as notifications checks will always pass null. You should use embeddingOrigin and requestingOrigin to determine what origin the owning frame and the requesting frame are on respectively.
    • permission String - Type of permission check. Valid values are midiSysex, notifications, geolocation, media,mediaKeySystem,midi, pointerLock, fullscreen, openExternal, or serial.
    • requestingOrigin String - The origin URL of the permission check

Sets the handler which can be used to respond to permission checks for the session. Returning true will allow the permission and false will reject it. Please note that you must also implement setPermissionRequestHandler to get complete permission handling. Most web APIs do a permission check and then make a permission request if the check is denied. To clear the handler, call setPermissionCheckHandler(null).

const { session } = require('electron')const url = require('url')session.fromPartition('some-partition').setPermissionCheckHandler((webContents, permission, requestingOrigin) => {  if (new URL(requestingOrigin).hostname === 'some-host' && permission === 'notifications') {    return true // granted  }

  • acceptLanguages String (optional)

Overrides the userAgent and acceptLanguages for this session.

The acceptLanguages must a comma separated ordered list of language codes, for example "en-US,fr,de,ko,zh-CN,ja".

This doesn't affect existing WebContents, and each WebContents can use webContents.setUserAgent to override the session-wide user agent.

ses.isPersistent()#

Returns Boolean - Whether or not this session is a persistent one. The default webContents session of a BrowserWindow is persistent. When creating a session from a partition, session prefixed with persist: will be persistent, while others will be temporary.

Unrecognized but parsable cipher suites in this form will not return an error. Ex: To disable TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5, specify 0x0004, while to disable TLS_ECDH_ECDSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA, specify 0xC002. Note that TLSv1.3 ciphers cannot be disabled using this mechanism.

Sets the SSL configuration for the session. All subsequent network requests will use the new configuration. Existing network connections (such as WebSocket connections) will not be terminated, but old sockets in the pool will not be reused for new connections.

ses.getBlobData(identifier)#

  • identifier String - Valid UUID.

Returns Promise<Buffer> - resolves with blob data.

ses.downloadURL(url)#

  • url String

Initiates a download of the resource at url. The API will generate a DownloadItem that can be accessed with the will-download event.

Note: This does not perform any security checks that relate to a page's origin, unlike webContents.downloadURL.

ses.createInterruptedDownload(options)#

  • options Object
    • path String - Absolute path of the download.
    • urlChain String[] - Complete URL chain for the download.

ses.clearAuthCache()#

Returns Promise<void> - resolves when the session’s HTTP authentication cache has been cleared.

ses.setPreloads(preloads)#

  • preloads String[] - An array of absolute path to preload scripts

ses.getPreloads()#

Returns String[] an array of paths to preload scripts that have been registered.

ses.setSpellCheckerEnabled(enable)#

  • enable Boolean

Sets whether to enable the builtin spell checker.

ses.isSpellCheckerEnabled()#

Returns Boolean - Whether the builtin spell checker is enabled.

ses.setSpellCheckerLanguages(languages)#

  • languages String[] - An array of language codes to enable the spellchecker for.

The built in spellchecker does not automatically detect what language a user is typing in. In order for the spell checker to correctly check their words you must call this API with an array of language codes. You can get the list of supported language codes with the ses.availableSpellCheckerLanguages property.

Note: On macOS the OS spellchecker is used and will detect your language automatically. This API is a no-op on macOS.

ses.getSpellCheckerLanguages()#

Returns String[] - An array of language codes the spellchecker is enabled for. If this list is empty the spellchecker will fallback to using en-US. By default on launch if this setting is an empty list Electron will try to populate this setting with the current OS locale. This setting is persisted across restarts.

Note: On macOS the OS spellchecker is used and has its own list of languages. This API is a no-op on macOS.

ses.setSpellCheckerDictionaryDownloadURL(url)#

  • url String - A base URL for Electron to download hunspell dictionaries from.

By default Electron will download hunspell dictionaries from the Chromium CDN. If you want to override this behavior you can use this API to point the dictionary downloader at your own hosted version of the hunspell dictionaries. We publish a hunspell_dictionaries.zip file with each release which contains the files you need to host here, the file server must be case insensitive you must upload each file twice, once with the case it has in the ZIP file and once with the filename as all lower case.

If the files present in hunspell_dictionaries.zip are available at https://example.com/dictionaries/language-code.bdic then you should call this api with ses.setSpellCheckerDictionaryDownloadURL('https://example.com/dictionaries/'). Please note the trailing slash. The URL to the dictionaries is formed as ${url}${filename}.

Note: On macOS the OS spellchecker is used and therefore we do not download any dictionary files. This API is a no-op on macOS.

ses.listWordsInSpellCheckerDictionary()#

Returns Promise<String[]> - An array of all words in app's custom dictionary. Resolves when the full dictionary is loaded from disk.

ses.addWordToSpellCheckerDictionary(word)#

  • word String - The word you want to add to the dictionary

Returns Boolean - Whether the word was successfully written to the custom dictionary. This API will not work on non-persistent (in-memory) sessions.

Note: On macOS and Windows 10 this word will be written to the OS custom dictionary as well

ses.removeWordFromSpellCheckerDictionary(word)#

  • word String - The word you want to remove from the dictionary

Returns Boolean - Whether the word was successfully removed from the custom dictionary. This API will not work on non-persistent (in-memory) sessions.

Note: On macOS and Windows 10 this word will be removed from the OS custom dictionary as well

ses.loadExtension(path[, options])#

  • path String - Path to a directory containing an unpacked Chrome extension
  • options Object (optional)
    • allowFileAccess Boolean - Whether to allow the extension to read local files over file:// protocol and inject content scripts into file:// pages. This is required e.g. for loading devtools extensions on file:// URLs. Defaults to false.

Returns Promise<Extension> - resolves when the extension is loaded.

This method will raise an exception if the extension could not be loaded. If there are warnings when installing the extension (e.g. if the extension requests an API that Electron does not support) then they will be logged to the console.

Note that Electron does not support the full range of Chrome extensions APIs. See Supported Extensions APIs for more details on what is supported.

Note that in previous versions of Electron, extensions that were loaded would be remembered for future runs of the application. This is no longer the case: loadExtension must be called on every boot of your app if you want the extension to be loaded.

const { app, session } = require('electron')const path = require('path')
app.on('ready', async () => {  await session.defaultSession.loadExtension(    path.join(__dirname, 'react-devtools'),    // allowFileAccess is required to load the devtools extension on file:// URLs.    { allowFileAccess: true }  )  // Note that in order to use the React DevTools extension, you'll need to  // download and unzip a copy of the extension.})

This API does not support loading packed (.crx) extensions.

Note: This API cannot be called before the ready event of the app module is emitted.

Note: Loading extensions into in-memory (non-persistent) sessions is not supported and will throw an error.

ses.removeExtension(extensionId)#

  • extensionId String - ID of extension to remove

Unloads an extension.

Note: This API cannot be called before the ready event of the app module is emitted.

ses.getExtension(extensionId)#

  • extensionId String - ID of extension to query

Returns Extension | null - The loaded extension with the given ID.

Note: This API cannot be called before the ready event of the app module is emitted.

ses.getAllExtensions()#

Returns Extension[] - A list of all loaded extensions.

Note: This API cannot be called before the ready event of the app module is emitted.

ses.getStoragePath()#

A String | null indicating the absolute file system path where data for this session is persisted on disk. For in memory sessions this returns null.

Instance Properties#

The following properties are available on instances of Session:

ses.availableSpellCheckerLanguages Readonly#
