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 :)
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.
$ node awesome.js ...bunch of debugging crap...
On another terminal
$ telnet localhost 6379 SET a 3 foo +OK GET a $3 foo QUIT
We're lazy, just run the Redis test suite:
$ cd ../redis $ make test ...will hang somwhere since Awesome doesn't support all commands yet.
