redis-lua

About

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

Main features

  • Support for Redis >= 1.2
  • Command pipelining
  • Redis transactions (MULTI/EXEC) with CAS
  • 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:rpush('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}

Pipeline commands

local replies = redis:pipeline(function(p)
    p:incrby('counter', 10)
    p:incrby('counter', 30)
    p:get('counter')
end)

Leverage Redis MULTI / EXEC transaction (Redis > 2.0)

local replies = redis:transaction(function(t)
    t:incrby('counter', 10)
    t:incrby('counter', 30)
    t:get('counter')
end)

Leverage WATCH / MULTI / EXEC for check-and-set (CAS) operations (Redis > 2.2)

local options = { watch = "key_to_watch", cas = true, retry = 2 }
local replies = redis:transaction(options, function(t)
    local val = t:get("key_to_watch")
    t:multi()
    t:set("akey", val)
    t:set("anotherkey", val)
end)

Get useful information from the server

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