Redis Xplorer

Redis Xplorer is a Visual Studio Code extension that allows you to manage Redis values with ease. Using this extension, you can

  • Create, edit & maintain multiple redis connection profiles

  • View Redis server connection information

  • Read, edit and save Redis values from within VS editor with all supported language features.

  • Filter Redis keys & focus on required items using text pattern e.g., example*.

Setup a new connection profile

  1. Select Redis Xplorer : Add new redis server connection profile from the command palette.

  2. Provide a name for the connection profile.

  3. Provide a host server name for the connection

  4. Next, default port number (:6379) is shown. You can modify that to 6380 for SSL support.

  5. Provide an access key for authentication.

  6. On completion, this new redis connection will be added to the Redis Xplorer dock window.

Performance consideration

Using Redis - Keys() method to retrieve all keys (i.e., millon or more keys) on production environment will result in performance issue due to blocking nature of long running request on Single threaded Redis server. So, latest Redis offers methods like scan() or scanStream() to query Redis items incrementally in a paginated way i.e., by requesting n items on each request.

The number of items to query on each request can be configured based on your Redis server capacity by accessing Redis Xplorer: Max. number of items to fetch per request from the command palatte (Ctrl + Shift + P).

Redis item actions


This extension persists all your configured connection profiles, under currently opened folder/workspace.

i.e., using .vscode/settings.json.
