Fast Redis compatible server framework for Go

Redcon is a custom Redis server framework for Go that is fast and simple to use. The reason for this library it to give an efficient server front-end for the BuntDB and Tile38 projects.

Features

  • Create a Fast custom Redis compatible server in Go
  • Simple interface. One function ListenAndServe and two types Conn & Command
  • Support for pipelining and telnet commands
  • Works with Redis clients such as redigo, redis-py, node_redis, and jedis
  • TLS Support
  • Multithreaded

Installing

go get -u github.com/tidwall/redcon

Example

Here's a full example of a Redis clone that accepts:

  • SET key value
  • GET key
  • DEL key
  • PING
  • QUIT

You can run this example from a terminal:

go run example/clone.go
package main

import (
	"log"
	"strings"
	"sync"

	"github.com/tidwall/redcon"
)

var addr = ":6380"

func main() {
	var mu sync.RWMutex
	var items = make(map[string][]byte)
	go log.Printf("started server at %s", addr)
	err := redcon.ListenAndServe(addr,
		func(conn redcon.Conn, cmd redcon.Command) {
			switch strings.ToLower(string(cmd.Args[0])) {
			default:
				conn.WriteError("ERR unknown command '" + string(cmd.Args[0]) + "'")
			case "ping":
				conn.WriteString("PONG")
			case "quit":
				conn.WriteString("OK")
				conn.Close()
			case "set":
				if len(cmd.Args) != 3 {
					conn.WriteError("ERR wrong number of arguments for '" + string(cmd.Args[0]) + "' command")
					return
				}
				mu.Lock()
				items[string(cmd.Args[1])] = cmd.Args[2]
				mu.Unlock()
				conn.WriteString("OK")
			case "get":
				if len(cmd.Args) != 2 {
					conn.WriteError("ERR wrong number of arguments for '" + string(cmd.Args[0]) + "' command")
					return
				}
				mu.RLock()
				val, ok := items[string(cmd.Args[1])]
				mu.RUnlock()
				if !ok {
					conn.WriteNull()
				} else {
					conn.WriteBulk(val)
				}
			case "del":
				if len(cmd.Args) != 2 {
					conn.WriteError("ERR wrong number of arguments for '" + string(cmd.Args[0]) + "' command")
					return
				}
				mu.Lock()
				_, ok := items[string(cmd.Args[1])]
				delete(items, string(cmd.Args[1]))
				mu.Unlock()
				if !ok {
					conn.WriteInt(0)
				} else {
					conn.WriteInt(1)
				}
			}
		},
		func(conn redcon.Conn) bool {
			// use this function to accept or deny the connection.
			// log.Printf("accept: %s", conn.RemoteAddr())
			return true
		},
		func(conn redcon.Conn, err error) {
			// this is called when the connection has been closed
			// log.Printf("closed: %s, err: %v", conn.RemoteAddr(), err)
		},
	)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
}

TLS Example

Redcon has full TLS support through the ListenAndServeTLS function.

The same example is also provided for serving Redcon over TLS.

go run example/tls/clone.go
