Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a persistent login, part of PHP: Managing Persistent Sessions.
- The autologin class creates persistent sessions…and logs in users automatically.…The class definition, including comments,…is more than 360 lines.…So rather than type it all out,…I'll explain how it works over the next few videos.…There's a copy of Autologin.php in the Chapter 4…04_04 folder of the exercise files.…The class uses the Foundationphp\Sessions name space,…so we need to copy it to Foundationphp Sessions folder…in the testing site route.…
Let's quickly do that.…This long comment at the top of the file…is the MIT license that allows you…to modify and redistribute the code.…Let's just fold that away.…And then I'm going to expand this pane…so we can see the code more clearly.…The autologin class shares many common properties…with the Persistent SessionHandler class…that was defined in the previous video.…So the class definition begins…by importing the PersistentProperties trait…with the use operator.…
Next, several other properties are declared.…They are all commented, so I won't describe them in detail.…
