luvit-redis - fast luvit redis client.

This is a redis client for luvit which under the hood uses offical hiredis c library what makes it pretty fast (see benchmarks below).

Installation

from git

git clone https://github.com/twojcik/luvit-redis
make

Usage

Simple example, included as examples/exampe.lua:

local redis = require('redis')

local client = redis:new()

client:on("error", function (err)
    print("Error (error callback): ", err)
end)

client:set('test-key','luvit-rocks', redis.print)
client:hset("hash key", "hashtest 1", "some value", redis.print)
client:hset("hash key", "hashtest 2", "some other value", redis.print)
client:hkeys("hash key", function (err, replies)
    print(#replies.." replies:")
    for i,v in ipairs(replies) do print(i,v) end
end)

This will display:

Benchmarks

Comparison of node-redis and luvit-redis.

Summary: luvit-redis is about 3x to 13x faster than node-redis.

Benchmark performed on single box( on Intel I7 i920).

Sending Commands

Each Redis command is exposed as a function on the client object. All functions take variable number of individual arguments followed by an optional callback.

Example:

client:mset("test keys 1", "test val 1", "test keys 2", "test val 2", function (err, res) end)

For a list of Redis commands, see Redis Command Reference

The commands can be specified in uppercase or lowercase for convenience, client:get() is the same as client:GET().

API

Connection events

client object will emit some events about the state of the connection to the Redis server.

"connect"

client will emit connect event when first write event is received (stream is connected to redis).

"disconnect"

client will emit disconnect event when connection is disconnected (per user request).

"error"

client will emit error when encountering an error with connection to the Redis server.

Note that "error" is a special event type in luvit. If there are no listeners for an "error" event, luvit will exit.

redis:new(port, host, autoReconnect)

Create a new client connection. port defaults to 6379 and host defaults to 127.0.0.1. If you have redis-server running on the same computer as luvit, then the defaults for port and host are probably fine.

autoReconnect

luvi-redis has autoReconnect functionality to redis-sever build in. You can turn it off by setting 'autoReconnect' to false.

(TODO: add more explanation how it works.)

client:registerCommand(...)

(todo)

client:command(...)

(todo)

client:disconnect()

When this function is called, the connection is not immediately terminated. Instead, new commands are no longer accepted and the connection is only terminated when all pending commands have been written to the socket, their respective replies have been read and their respective callbacks have been executed.

redis.print()

A handy callback function for displaying return values when testing.

new() returns a RedisClient object that is named client in all of the examples here.

TODO

  • apply fixes according to @DVV review comments
  • unit tests
  • improve docs
  • more examples
  • client auth
  • c optimizations ?
