em-redis

An eventmachine-based implementation of the Redis protocol

6 years after

== EM-REDIS

== DESCRIPTION:

An EventMachine[http://rubyeventmachine.com/] based library for interacting with the very cool Redis[http://code.google.com/p/redis/] data store by Salvatore 'antirez' Sanfilippo. Modeled after eventmachine's implementation of the memcached protocol, and influenced by Ezra Zygmuntowicz's {redis-rb}[http://github.com/ezmobius/redis-rb/tree/master] library (distributed as part of Redis).

This library is only useful when used as part of an application that relies on Event Machine's event loop. It implements an EM-based client protocol, which leverages the non-blocking nature of the EM interface to achieve significant parallelization without threads.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Implements most Redis commands (see {the list of available commands here}[http://code.google.com/p/redis/wiki/CommandReference] with the notable exception of MONITOR.

== SYNOPSIS:

Like any Deferrable eventmachine-based protocol implementation, using EM-Redis involves making calls and passing blocks that serve as callbacks when the call returns.

require 'em-redis'

EM.run do redis = EM::Protocols::Redis.connect redis.errback do |code| puts "Error code: #{code}" end redis.set "a", "foo" do |response| redis.get "a" do |response| puts response end end

We get pipelining for free

redis.set("b", "bar")
redis.get("a") do |response|
  puts response # will be foo
end

end

To run tests on a Redis server (currently compatible with 1.3)

rake

Because the EM::Protocol::Memcached code used Bacon for testing, test code is currently in the form of bacon specs.
