hiredis requirement causes build issues on Windows #978

the build script of hiredis requires GNU make, which is rarely present on Windows systems.

I understand that redis is a supported storage engine by, but it doesn't seem like a core feature to me and having it as a mandatory requirement seems a bit abusive to me.

Is it possible to remove the requirement from package.json and instead print a warning if the user tries to use redis storage without hiredis installed ?

I can write a patch if needed.


Seems like a bug in the redis package, as hiredis shouldn't be mandatory.


It seems to work regardless of npm making warnings(redisstore on windows).


It seems that it's indeed not a problem with, closing the issue.
