Build Status Gitter

A C++ Redis client, born to bring my experience using Redis and C++ on a opensource library.

Main goals

  1. Provide a simple and efficient wrapper of hiredis, with C++ facilities like memory management
  2. A connection pooling system, with support for high availability using sentinel
  3. A set of useful patterns ready to use and composable with other code. For example scheduler, orm, counters or message queueing


redis3m requires hiredis and boost libraries.


First step install all required dependencies, on a Debian system you can use:

sudo apt-get install libmsgpack-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-date-time-dev libboost-test-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-system-dev libhiredis-dev cmake build-essential libboost-regex-dev

Then checkout the code and compile it

git clone
cd redis3m
sudo make install


See examples directory for some examples, you can compile them with:

g++ <example.cpp> $(pkg-config --cflags --libs redis3m) -o <example.bin>

You can find all classes reference here


This project uses semantic versioning. In short words versions are named X.Y[.Z]. Changing X means break API changes, Y means new features without breaking old code, Z means bug fixing.
