== redis
This page is maintained in the package's
[[ |github repository]].
Fast bindings to redis using hiredis. Note that you will need to fetch
the git submodules in this package. These bindings provide only the
synchornous API and at the moment do not provide timeouts.
<procedure>(redis-connect hostname port)</procedure>
Connect to a redis host, will produce an error if the connection
fails. Returns an opaque pointer to the redis context.
<procedure>(redis-command context string)</procedure>
Send the string as a command to redis and parse the reply. Arrays are
converted into lists. Due to a bug in hiredis if your command has a
string argument which contains whitespace you need to use
''redis-command*'' instead as it is impossible to correctly escape
whitespace characters. If you want to pass in binary data you should
also look at ''redis-command*'' instead.
<procedure>(redis-command* context command . arguments)</procedure>
Like ''redis-command'' but separately specifies the command and each
of its arguments. When you have a string argument which contains
whitespace you must use this function instead of ''redis-command''
because of a bug in hiredis.
=== Example
<enscript hilight="scheme">
(redis-command (redis-connect "" 6379) "keys *")
This will produce a list of strings, the keys in the redis database.
<enscript hilight="scheme">
(begin (redis-command* (redis-connect "" 6379) "hset" "a" "b" "x y z")
(redis-command* (redis-connect "" 6379) "hget" "a" "b"))
Set key ''b'' in hash table ''a'' to a string which may contain
whitespace and retrieve that string.
