The redis-hs package

[Tags:library, mit]

This package provides access to Redis stores using the Data.ByteString.UTF8 ByteString, for consistent handling of UTF8 encoding. It is a developer pre- release, so it lacks many of the features of the existing redis package (including a monad wrapper, custom state management, and custom concurrency management) but for ordinary tasks, this library makes using Redis very straightforward.

The feature set is incomplete, with a full command set, test coverage, and documentation planned for version 0.1.

To test it out, try the following:

con <- connect localhost defaultPort
