MultiThreaded MultiServers Redis Extension for Flask Applications

Project Description


CI Status

PyPI Status

Adds Redis support to Flask with fail-over or aggregation capabilities.

Mostly inspired by these projects :

Built on top of redis-py.



Flask-Multi-Redis allows you to easily access multiple Redis servers from Flask applications. It supports SSL connections and password authentication. It’s not intended to implement all Redis commands but gives you the hability to make multi-threaded parallel queries to multiple Redis servers without the need to deploy a Redis cluster.


pip install flask-multi-redis


Enable Flask-Multi-Redis in your application :

from flask import Flask
from flask.ext.redis import FlaskRedis

app = Flask(__name__)
redis_store = FlaskRedis(app)

Flask-Multi-Redis provide a simple flexible configuration handling. It reads its configuration from your Flask app.config dictionnary.

Default configuration for all servers :

app.config['REDIS_DEFAULT_PORT'] = 6379
app.config['REDIS_DEFAULT_DB'] = 0
app.config['REDIS_DEFAULT_PASSWORD'] = None
app.config['REDIS_DEFAULT_SSL'] = None


FlaskMultiRedis proxies attribute access to an underlying Redis connection. So treat it as if it were a regular Redis instance.

def index():
    return redis_store.get('potato', 'Not Set')

Protip: The redis-py package currently holds the ‘redis’ namespace, so if you are looking to make use of it, your Redis object shouldn’t be named ‘redis’.

For detailed instructions regarding the usage of the client, check the redis-py documentation.

Advanced features, such as Lua scripting, pipelines and callbacks are detailed within the projects README.
