Supposing that the skeleton of your application is ready, you simply need to register this service provider by specifying the parameters and options needed to access Redis:
$app->register(new Predis\Silex\ClientServiceProvider(), [ 'predis.parameters' => 'tcp://127.0.0.1:6379', 'predis.options' => [ 'prefix' => 'silex:', 'profile' => '3.0', ], ]);
This will register one instance of
Predis\Client accessible from anywhere in your application by
predis.options are optional and they accept
the same values accepted by the constructor of
Predis\Client (see the documentation of Predis).
Certain applications might need more than one client to reach different servers or configured with
different options. In such cases you must use
Predis\Silex\ClientsServiceProvider providing a list
of clients with their own parameters and options using
$app->register(new Predis\Silex\ClientsServiceProvider(), [ 'predis.clients' => [ 'client1' => 'tcp://127.0.0.1:6379', 'client2' => [ 'host' => '127.0.0.1', 'port' => 6380, ], 'client3' => [ 'parameters' => 'tcp://127.0.0.1:6381', 'options' => [ 'profile' => 'dev', 'prefix' => 'silex:', ], ], ), ]);
Clients will be exposed to your application using
$alias is the key
used to populate the items of
predis.clients. Optionally, it is possible to set a default client
by specifying its alias in
predis.default_client making it accessible simply by invoking methods
Predis\Client directly against
$app['predis']. Client instances are lazily initialized upon
the first access.
NOTE: this is not the same as using a cluster of nodes or replication as it will only create and
set up independent client instances. Cluster and replication thus work with both single and multiple
client configurations, you just need to provide the needed parameters and options for each instance
You can find more details on how to use this provider in the
examples directory or the test suite.
