Querying, secondary indexing, and full-text search for Redis


RediSearch is a Redis module that provides querying, secondary indexing, and full-text search for Redis. To use RediSearch, you first declare indexes on your Redis data. You can then use the RediSearch query language to query that data.

RediSearch uses compressed, inverted indexes for fast indexing with a low memory footprint.

RediSearch indexes enhance Redis by providing exact-phrase matching, fuzzy search, and numeric filtering, among many other features.

Getting started

If you're just getting started with RediSearch, check out the official RediSearch tutorial. Also, consider viewing our RediSearch video explainer.

The fastest way to get up and running with RediSearch is by using the Redis Stack Docker image.
