Raw examples

0> redis:connect([]).  % connect to default redis port on localhost
1> redis:q([set, "foo", "bar"]).
{ok,<<"OK">>}
2> redis:q([get, "foo"]).
{ok,<<"bar">>}
3> redis:q([sadd, "bar", "a"]).
{ok,1}
4> redis:q([sadd, "bar", "b"]).
{ok,1}
5> redis:q([sadd, "bar", "c"]).
{ok,1}
6> redis:q([lrange, 0, -1]).
{error,<<"ERR wrong number of arguments for 'lrange' command">>}
7> redis:q([lrange, "bar", 0, -1]).
{error,<<"ERR Operation against a key holding the wrong kind of value">>}
8> redis:q([smembers, "bar"]).
[{ok,<<"c">>},{ok,<<"a">>},{ok,<<"b">>}]
9> redis:q([incr, "counter"]).
{ok,1}

Breakdance/Breakdown

redis:connect(Options) -> ok | {error, Reason}

  Types:

    Options = [Opt]
    Opt = {atom(), Value}
    Value = term()

  Connects to redis server

  The available options are:

  {ip, Ip}

    If the host has several network interfaces, this option
    specifies which one to use.  Default is "127.0.0.1".

  {port, Port}

    Specify which local port number to use.  Default is 6379.

  {pass, Pass}

    Specify to password to auth with upon a successful connect.
    Default is <<>>.

  {db, DbIndex}

    Sepcify the db to use.  Default is 0.


redis:q(Parts) -> {ok, binary()} | {ok, int()} | {error, binary()}

  Types

    Parts = [Part]

      The sections, in order, of the command to be executed

    Part = atom() | binary() | list()

      A section of a redis command

      NOTE:  An atom() is converted to an uppercase list().

  Tell redis to execute a command.

redis:keys(Pat) -> [binary()]

  Types

    Pat = list()

      The pattern to search for keys on

  See: http://code.google.com/p/redis/wiki/KeysCommand

In motion

The amazing SORT command:

redis:q([sort, "foo", by, "bar:*"]).

is converted to:

["SORT", "foo", "BY", "bar:*"]

which is then compiled to

*4
$4
SORT
$3
foo
$2
BY
$5
bar:*

and sent over the wire to redis.

Sugar

Sugar functions enable you to avoid the slightly less attractive raw redis:q/1 command.

There is currently only one sugar command, redis:keys/1

1> redis:keys("f*").
[<<"foo">>, <<"funk">>]

On Sugar commands and future additions too

Sugar commands must return an easy to use term() that resembles the closest erlang-esq expression of it's redis form.

I'm currently on the fence about how these commands look, and what they return, but thanks to the multi-bulk-request protocol redis uses, it's simple to use redis:q/1 function for all commands.

How can you get your Sugar functions in? See the next section.
