scredis

Scredis is a reactive, non-blocking and ultra-fast Scala Redis client built on top of Akka IO. It has been (and still is) extensively used in production at Livestream.

Features

  • Supports all Redis commands up to v3.0.0
  • Built on top of Akka non-blocking IO
  • Super fast, see Benchmarks section below
  • Automatic reconnection
  • Automatic pipelining
  • Transactions
  • Pub/Sub
    • Subscribe selectively with partial functions
    • Tracked Subscribe and Unsubscribe commands (they return a Future as any other commands)
    • Automatically resubscribes to previously subscribed channels/patterns upon reconnection
  • Cluster support via RedisCluster
  • Customizable serialization and deserialization of command inputs and outputs
  • Fully configurable
    • Akka dispatchers
    • Pipelined write batch size
    • Receive timeout
    • TCP buffer size hints
    • Request encoding buffer pool
    • Concurrent requests cap (bounded memory consumption)

Getting started

Binaries

Scredis 2.1+ is compatible with Scala 2.11 and 2.12. Binary releases are hosted on the Sonatype Central Repository.

// TODO this version is not yet published
libraryDependencies += "com.github.scredis" %% "scredis" % "2.1.1"

Snapshots / development versions are hosted on a separate bintray repository.

resolvers += Resolver.bintrayRepo("jastice","maven")

libraryDependencies += "com.github.scredis" %% "scredis" % "<version>"

Quick example

import scredis._
import scala.util.{ Success, Failure }

// Creates a Redis instance with default configuration.
// See reference.conf for the complete list of configurable parameters.
val redis = Redis()

// Import internal ActorSystem's dispatcher (execution context) to register callbacks
import redis.dispatcher

// Executing a non-blocking command and registering callbacks on the returned Future
redis.hGetAll("my-hash") onComplete {
  case Success(content) => println(content)
  case Failure(e) => e.printStackTrace()
}

// Executes a blocking command using the internal, lazily initialized BlockingClient
redis.blocking.blPop(0, "queue")

// Subscribes to a Pub/Sub channel using the internal, lazily initialized SubscriberClient
redis.subscriber.subscribe("My Channel") {
  case message @ PubSubMessage.Message(channel, messageBytes) => println(
    message.readAs[String]()
  )
  case PubSubMessage.Subscribe(channel, subscribedChannelsCount) => println(
    s"Successfully subscribed to $channel"
  )
}

// Shutdown all initialized internal clients along with the ActorSystem
redis.quit()
