Redis client for Async applications
README

A Redis client library for OCaml Async applications. Provides a
strongly-typed API with transparent (de)serialization for
application-defined types. Includes support for client tracking.

Compatible with Redis versions 6 and higher. Internally, implements
the RESP3 protocol.

Example Usage

Here are a few basic examples. Please see the included tests for additional
detail and features.

Plain

Redis natively works with plain strings for many commands. Users of
other Redis clients will be most familiar this style of interaction.

open Core
open Async
open Deferred.Or_error.Let_syntax

module Redis = Redis.Make (Redis.Bulk_io.String) (Redis.Bulk_io.String) in
let%bind redis =
  Redis.create
    ~where_to_connect:
      (Tcp.Where_to_connect.of_host_and_port
         (Host_and_port.create ~host:"localhost" ~port:6379))
    ()
in
let%map reply = Redis.echo redis "Hello, world!" in
print_endline reply

Typeful

Application-defined types can be used directly as Redis keys and
values. Convenience functors that implement the required
(de)serialization for Stringable and Binable types are provided.

open Core
open Async
open Deferred.Or_error.Let_syntax

module Key = struct
  module T = struct
    type t = { name : string }

    let to_string { name } = name
    let of_string name = { name }
  end

  include T
  include Redis.Bulk_io.Make_stringable (T)
end

module Value = struct
  module T = struct
    type t =
      { color  : string
      ; number : int
      }
    [@@deriving bin_io, sexp]
  end

  include T
  include Redis.Bulk_io.Make_binable (T)
end

module Redis = Redis.Make (Key) (Value) in
let%bind redis =
  Redis.create
    ~where_to_connect:
      (Tcp.Where_to_connect.of_host_and_port
         (Host_and_port.create ~host:"localhost" ~port:6379))
    ()
in
let key   = { Key.name    = "Jane"              } in
let value = { Value.color = "blue"; number = 42 } in
let%bind ()    = Redis.set redis key value in
let%map  value = Redis.get redis key       in
print_s ([%sexp_of: Value.t option] value)
