Readme for redis-hs

Readme for redis-hs-0.1.0


A simple link to Redis in Haskell, emphasizing ease of use, readability of code, documentation and test coverage.


cabal install redis-hs


To test it out, try the following:

con <- connect localhost defaultPort
_ <- select con 0
_ <- itemSet con "greek" "ἐστίν"
tester <- itemGet con "greek"
putStrLn $ unwrapReply tester

If you need to see the details of the response, replace unwrapReply with show.


Much of the code in this library is inspired by the work of Anders Conbere and Alexander Bogdanov (author of the redis library on Hackage).
