Redis for SA:MP
A powerful Redis plugin granting access to a fast in-memory database and asynchronous message channels between other programs.
It's open source and available here
What Redis Is
Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache and message broker. It supports data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs and geospatial indexes with radius queries.
(from the Redis official site)
In SA:MP terms: Redis is can be the GVar plugin on steroids. It can be a place to store large amounts of information and free up heap space (and cut compile times!)
You can also use Redis to delegate slower tasks to other programs through the power of pubsub message queues!
What Redis Is Not
Redis is not a permanent database. It exists entirely in memory which makes it very fast to read from and write to but it is not a replacement for something like MySQL to store data for a very long period of time.
Simply install to your project:
sampctl package install Southclaws/pawn-redis
