An asynchronous Redis client for Tornado.

This client is not finished and still under development. And I'm going to try various thing with it before it reaches a stable release. Like stuff that doesn't make sense. :D


  • C-based reply parser. (in progress)
  • Implement commands and unit tests. (in progress)
  • Implement pipelining.

I haven't looked into pub/sub, Lua scripting and transactions, but those will be included too. It just needs some more research.

I'll first support Python 2 and then add support for Python 3 to avoid version checks everywhere in the code. There are some differences in the C-APIs of Python 2 and 3.
