Redis-Sentinel integration for Flask

Project description

Travis CI

Flask-Redis-Sentinel provides support for connecting to Redis using Sentinel and also supports connecting to Redis without it.

  • Supports Python 2.7 and 3.3+
  • Licensed using Apache License 2.0

Installation

Install with pip:

pip install Flask-Redis-Sentinel

Basic usage

from flask.ext.redis_sentinel import SentinelExtension

redis_sentinel = SentinelExtension()
redis_connection = redis_sentinel.default_connection

# Later when you create application
app = Flask(...)
redis_sentinel.init_app(app)

You can configure Redis connection parameters using REDIS_URL Flask configuration variable with redis+sentinel URL scheme:

redis+sentinel://localhost:26379[,otherhost:26379,...]/mymaster/0
redis+sentinel://localhost:26379[,otherhost:26379,...]/mymaster/0?socket_timeout=0.1
redis+sentinel://localhost:26379[,otherhost:26379,...]/mymaster/0?sentinel_socket_timeout=0.1
redis+sentinel://:sentinel-secret-password@localhost:26379[,otherhost:26379,...]/mymaster/0?sentinel_socket_timeout=0.1

The extension also supports URL schemes as supported by redis-py for connecting to an instance directly without Sentinel:

redis://[:password]@localhost:6379/0
rediss://[:password]@localhost:6379/0
unix://[:password]@/path/to/socket.sock?db=0

Flask-And-Redis style config variables are also supported for easier migration, but the extension will log a DeprecationWarning:

REDIS_HOST = 'localhost'
REDIS_PORT = 6379
REDIS_DB = 0

In case both REDIS_URL and other variables are present, the URL is used.

Creating multiple connection pools using a single Sentinel cluster

from flask.ext.redis_sentinel import SentinelExtension

redis_sentinel = SentinelExtension()
master1 = redis_sentinel.master_for('service1')
master2 = redis_sentinel.master_for('service2')
slave1 = redis_sentinel.slave_for('service1')

Accessing redis-py’s Sentinel instance

from flask.ext.redis_sentinel import SentinelExtension
from flask import jsonify, Flask

app = Flask('test')

redis_sentinel = SentinelExtension(app=app)

@app.route('/'):
def index():
    slaves = redis_sentinel.sentinel.discover_slaves('service1')
    return jsonify(slaves=slaves)

Change log

v0.2.0

  • Use config variables other than REDIS_{HOST, PORT, DB} even if REDIS_URL is used
  • Minor refactoring

v0.1.0

  • Initial release
