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, and so lacks many of the features of the existing redis package (like a monad wrapper, state management, and custom concurrency management) but for light use, this library makes using Redis very straightforward.

The feature set is incomplete, and version 1.0.0 will be tagged only when the library has full command coverage, reasonable test coverage, and solid documentation.
