redis-lua

About

redis-lua is a pure Lua client library for the Redis advanced key-value database.

Main features

  • Support for Redis up to version 1.2
  • Command pipelining
  • User-definable commands

Examples of usage

Include redis-lua in your script

require 'redis'

Connect to a redis-server instance and send a PING command

local redis = Redis.connect('127.0.0.1', 6379)
local response = redis:ping()           -- true

Set keys and get their values

redis:set('usr:nrk', 10)
redis:set('usr:nobody', 5)
local value = redis:get('usr:nrk')      -- 10

Sort list values by using various parameters supported by the server

for _,v in ipairs({ 10,3,2,6,1,4,23 }) do
    redis:push_tail('usr:nrk:ids',v)
end

local sorted = redis:sort('usr:nrk:ids', {
     sort = 'asc', alpha = true, limit = { 1, 5 }
})      -- {1=10,2=2,3=23,4=3,5=4}

Get useful information from the server

for k,v in pairs(redis:info()) do 
    print(k .. ' => ' .. tostring(v))
end
