Client library for the Redis datastore: supports full command set, pipelining


Redis is an open source, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets. This library is a Haskell client for the Redis datastore. Compared to other Haskell client libraries it has some advantages:

[Compatibility with Latest Stable Redis:] Hedis is intended to be used with the latest stable version of Redis (currently 3.2). Most redis commands (<>) are available as haskell functions, although MONITOR and SYNC are intentionally omitted. Additionally, a low-level API is exposed that makes it easy for the library user to implement further commands, such as new commands from an experimental Redis version.

[Automatic Optimal Pipelining:] Commands are pipelined (<>) as much as possible without any work by the user. See <> for a technical explanation of automatic optimal pipelining.

[Enforced Pub/Sub semantics:] When subscribed to the Redis Pub/Sub server (<>), clients are not allowed to issue commands other than subscribing to or unsubscribing from channels. This library uses the type system to enforce the correct behavior.

[Connect via TCP or Unix Domain Socket:] TCP sockets are the default way to connect to a Redis server. For connections to a server on the same machine, Unix domain sockets offer higher performance than the standard TCP connection.

For detailed documentation, see the "Database.Redis" module. .
