A Redis interface for modest developers

branch: master
README.markdown

Redisent

Redisent is a simple, no-nonsense interface to the Redis data structure store for modest developers. It is designed to flexible and tolerant of changes to the Redis protocol.

Introduction

If you're at all familiar with the Redis protocol and PHP objects, you've already mastered Redisent. Redisent translates method calls to their Redis protocol equivalent, abstracting away the nitty-gritty, and then makes the return values PHP compatible.

Features

Shared Redis API

The Redisent method names map directly to their Redis command counterparts. The full list is available in the command reference.

Setting Keys

$redis->set('foo', 'bar')
// SET foo bar

Working with lists

$redis->lpush('particles', 'electron')
// LPUSH particles electron
$redis->lpush('particles', 'proton')
// LPUSH particles proton
$redis->lpush('particles', 'neutron')
// LPUSH particles neutron
$redis->llen('particles')
// LLEN particles

Pipelining

Redisent provides a fluent interface for pipelining commands to Redis.

$redis->pipeline()
  ->set('X', 2)
  ->incr('X')
  ->incr('X')
  ->uncork(); // #=> array containing the responses of each command

Quick Start

Redisent has no dependencies aside from requiring PHP versions 5.3 and later. To add it to your project, simply drop the Redis.php file into your project structure, instantiate a Redis instance, and start issuing commands.

require_once 'redisent/Redis.php';
$redis = new redisent\Redis('redis://localhost');
$redis->set('awesome', 'absolutely');
echo "Is Redisent awesome? ", $redis->get('awesome'), "\n";

Any errors originating from Redis will be wrapped in a resident\RedisException and thrown.

Pipelining

Redisent supports a fluent interface for pipelining. A pipeline is started by calling the pipeline method on a Redis instance, using Redisent as usual, and then calling the uncork method. The uncork method returns an array of the responses of the pipelined commands.

Example

$redis = new redisent\Redis();
$responses = $redis->pipeline()
    ->incr('X')
    ->incr('X')
    ->incr('X')
    ->incr('X')
    ->uncork();
print_r($responses);

If the key X didn't exist, the first INCR would create it and return 1, and successive calls would increment it by 1. The return value of the call to uncork() would be array(1,2,3,4), the responses of each INCR command.

Contributing

Pull requests please! Feature/topic branches are especially appreciated. Unit tests are written with SimpleTest, please include tests in your pull request. To run tests, run sh setup.sh script to get set up and then php tests/all_tests.php to run the suite.

Roadmap

Redis has grown to be very feature rich, and Redisent is lagging behind.
