A Redis implementation in node.js

branch: master
README.md

Awesome is a Redis clone in node.js

WORK IN PROGRESS

At this point, Awesome has all the plumbing in place to implement all of Redis' commands. It comes with a bunch of commands to show you how to add your own. But it does not yet implement all that is needed to be a grown up Redis. I hope you can pitch in and add your favourite Redis commands :)

What?

Awesome aims to be a drop-in replacement for Redis in a node.js environment. Awesome doesn't claim to better, faster, smaller, whatever.

If nothing else, this code helps me understand Redis and node.js. I hope it helps others to learn either or both, too.

Run Awesome

$ node awesome.js
...bunch of debugging crap...

On another terminal

$ telnet localhost 6379
SET a 3
foo
+OK
GET a
$3
foo
QUIT

Yay!

Run Tests

We're lazy, just run the Redis test suite:

$ cd ../redis
$ make test
...will hang somwhere since Awesome doesn't support all commands yet.
