A Redis client implementation for JavaScript.

A Redis client implementation for JavaScript.

  • Talk to Redis from Node.js
  • Fully asynchronous; your code is called back when an operation completes
  • Binary-safe; uses Node.js Buffer objects for request serialization and reply parsing
  • e.g. store a PNG in Redis if you'd like
  • Client API directly follows Redis' command specification
  • You have to understand how Redis works and the semantics of its command set to most effectively use this client
  • Supports Redis' new exciting PUBSUB commands
  • Automatically reconnects to Redis (doesn't drop commands sent while waiting to reconnect either) using exponential backoff
  • Be sure to see this script for a deeper discussion
