Predis is a flexible and feature-complete PHP client library for the Redis key-value store.
We are currently in the process of rewriting the whole wiki with new contents, documentation and tips!
Predis requires PHP >= 5.3 and it is entirely written in PHP so it can be used without the need to build and install a native extension for the interpreter, making it also easier and faster to add new features which is great given how fast the development of Redis proceeds.
It is also available on Packagist for an easy installation using Composer. Composer helps you manage dependencies for your projects and libraries without much hassle which makes it the preferred way to get up and running with new applications. Alternatively, the library is available on our own PEAR channel for a more traditional installation via PEAR. Zip and tar.gz archives are also downloadable from GitHub by browsing the list of tagged releases.
This quick tour gives you a quick introduction on how Predis can be configured and used. [OUTDATED: that page actually refers to Predis v0.6, we are still rewriting the whole wiki!]
Predis can be used as-is with any PHP web framework out there but sometimes it is easier to use ad-hoc extensions that make it blend nicely into their logic and common patterns. What follows is a list of such extensions created and maintained by the community:
The following modules require the PHP 5.2 backport of Predis 5.2:
If you want to work on Predis, it is highly recommended that you first run the test suite in order to
check that everything is OK, and report strange behaviours or bugs. When modifying Predis please make
sure that no warnings or notices are emitted by PHP by running the interpreter in your development
environment with the
error_reporting variable set to
E_ALL | E_STRICT.
The recommended way to contribute to Predis is to fork the project on GitHub, create new topic branches on your newly created repository to fix or add features (possibly with tests covering your modifications) and then open a new pull request with a description of the applied changes. Obviously you can use any other Git hosting provider of your preference.
