rdb-rs - RDB parsing, formatting, analyzing. All in one library

crates.io Build Status Clippy Linting Result

Inspired and based on redis-rdb-tools.

Documentation

Online at rdb.fnordig.de/doc/rdb/.

Build

cargo build --release

Minimum required Rust version: 1.6.0

Install

make install

You can change the path by setting PREFIX. Defaults to /usr.

Basic operation

rdb-rs exposes just one important method: parse. This methods takes care of reading the RDB from a stream, parsing the containted data and calling the provided formatter with already-parsed values.

use std::io::BufReader;
use std::fs::File;
use std::path::Path;

let file = File::open(&Path::new("dump.rdb")).unwrap();
let reader = BufReader::new(file);
rdb::parse(reader, rdb::formatter::JSON::new(), rdb::filter::Simple::new());

Formatter

rdb-rs brings 4 pre-defined formatters, which can be used:

  • Plain: Just plain output for testing
  • JSON: JSON-encoded output
  • Nil: Surpresses all output
  • Protocol: Formats the data in RESP, the Redis Serialization Protocol

These formatters adhere to the Formatter trait and supply a method for each possible datatype or opcode. Its up to the formatter to correctly handle all provided data such as lists, sets, hashes, expires and metadata.

Command-line

rdb-rs brings a Command Line application as well.

This application will take a RDB file as input and format it in the specified format (JSON by default).

Example:

$ rdb --format json dump.rdb
[{"key":"value"}]
$ rdb --format protocol dump.rdb
*2
$6
SELECT
$1
0
*3
$3
SET
$3
key
$5
value

Tests

Run tests with:

make test

This will run the code tests with cargo as well as checking that it can parse all included dump files.
