The Redis Book (as yet otherwise unnamed)
The Redis book is an attempt at creating the definitive tutorial and reference guide to Redis, an open-source, memory based, persistent, key-value data storage system built by Salvatore Sanfilippo of VMware.
This repository contains a nanoc project that builds an HTML version of the book, based
upon content in HTML files found in the
content/ directory. The book's source HTML files are nanoc-style Markdown
documents that also contain special book-specific directives that I'm currently calling "Pebo" syntax. ASCIIDoc
is being considered as a destination format, however.
Key ambitions for the book are to be transparent (public GitHub repo with latest content), open (non-commercial Creative Commons license and allowing changes via GitHub forks), and to make for good reading and learning (including SVG figures - some interactive, hopefully). I will be selling an attractive PDF and print book later on down the line while having the same content available online for free, rather like Michael Hartl's RailsTutorial.org.
The project has only just been started after a little offline planning. There is nothing to see yet. August 6, 2010
