<h1><a name="Quick Start">Quick Start</a></h1>This quickstart is a five minutes howto on how to get started with Redis. For more information on Redis check <a href="http://code.google.com/p/redis/wiki/index" target="_blank">Redis Documentation Index</a>.<h2><a name="Obtain the latest version">Obtain the latest version</a></h2>The latest stable source distribution of Redis can be obtained <a href="http://code.google.com/p/redis/downloads/list" target="_blank">at this location as a tarball</a>.<br/><br/><pre class="codeblock python" name="code">
$ wget http://redis.googlecode.com/files/redis-1.02.tar.gz
</pre>The unstable source code, with more features but not ready for production, can be downloaded using git:<br/><br/><pre class="codeblock python python" name="code">
$ git clone git://github.com/antirez/redis.git
</pre><h2><a name="Compile">Compile</a></h2>Redis can be compiled in most <a href="SupportedPlatforms.html">POSIX systems</a>. To compile Redis just untar the tar.gz, enter the directly and type 'make'.<br/><br/><pre class="codeblock python python python" name="code">
$ tar xvzf redis-1.02.tar.gz
$ cd redis-1.02
$ make
</pre>In order to test if the Redis server is working well in your computer make sure to run <code name="code" class="python">make test</code> and check that all the tests are passed.<h2><a name="Run the server">Run the server</a></h2>Redis can run just fine without a configuration file (when executed without a config file a standard configuration is used). To run Redis just type the following command:<br/><br/><pre class="codeblock python python python python" name="code">
$ ./redis-server
</pre>With the <a href="Configuration.html">default configuration</a> Redis will log to the standard output so you can check what happens. Later, you can <a href="Configuration.html">change the default settings</a>.<h2><a name="Play with the built in client">Play with the built in client</a></h2>Redis ships with a command line client that is automatically compiled when you ran <code name="code" class="python">make</code> and it is called <code name="code" class="python">redis-cli</code>For instance to set a key and read back the value use the following:<br/><br/><pre class="codeblock python python python python python" name="code">
$ ./redis-cli set mykey somevalue
OK
$ ./redis-cli get mykey
somevalue
</pre>What about adding elements to a <a href="Lists.html">list</a>:<br/><br/><pre class="codeblock python python python python python python" name="code">
$ ./redis-cli lpush mylist firstvalue
OK
$ ./redis-cli lpush mylist secondvalue
OK
$ ./redis-cli lpush mylist thirdvalue
OK
$ ./redis-cli lrange mylist 0 -1
1. thirdvalue
2. secondvalue
3. firstvalue
$ ./redis-cli rpop mylist
firstvalue
$ ./redis-cli lrange mylist 0 -1
1. thirdvalue
2. secondvalue
