See NextJS section -> session verification -> ssr method. Even if you are not using NextJS, you can do something similar

Ok. So, you are suggesting to use
Session.getSession
here?

I wanted to have similar workflow as `verifySession`(setting req.session object by middleware). So in that case, here's what I'll do. 1. I'll create my own middleware
authenticate()
2. In this middleware, I will use
Session.getSession
to verify the session and then I'd add the session info in req.session object. Then at the route handler side, I can simply
req.session
to see if the session is valid or expiered.\

Yea. And then I case the getSession throws a try refresh token exception, you can return the html page you wanted to

I was just writing that. If I find the error while verifying session to be
Session.Error.TRY_REFRESH_TOKEN
, I will start refresh token process (I still needs to learn about that)
User does not need to login for this case, right?

Yea.. well.. u should only use this for server side rendered routes
If u r doing this for an API call, that’s incorrect
For an api call, just use verifySession and all will work fine
If this doesn’t make sense, I suggest you see the how supertoeks works section first

I'm handling both API and html from one express app. Vanilla js. Ejs for templating.

Ok. So for APIs, you should use verifySession and for server side rendered routes, you can use your custom middleware

I am using same path for APIs and server side rendered routes. If the requested content-type is json, I return json otherwise the server side rendered html.
