The redis package

[Tags:library, mit]

Redis ( is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred as a data structure server since keys can contain different data structures, such as strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.

This library is a Haskell driver for Redis. It's tested with current git version and with v2.4.6 of redis server. It also tested with v2.2 and basic functions are works correctly but not all of them.

You can use Test module from the source package to run unit tests. Try runhaskell Test.hs --help for usage info. Caution! Do not run tests on your working database - test database will be flushed.

There are simple benchmark module included: Benchmark.hs. It shows me about two times less requests per second than redis-benchmark from server distribution.

Please let me know if tests or benchmark goes terribly wrong.
