A factory for redis connection that supports using Redis Sentinel

Project Description

Redis-Sentinel-Url provides parser and connection factory for redis:// and redis+sentinel:// URLs (the latter being defined by this package).

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


Install with pip:

pip install Redis-Sentinel-Url

URL scheme for connecting via Sentinel

This package defines redis+sentinel:// scheme for connecting to Redis via Sentinel:

  • You can specify multiple sentinel host:port pairs separated by comma.
  • If service_name is provided, it is used to create a default client
  • service_name and db can also be specified as URL parameters (URL parameters take precedence)
  • Client options (keyword arguments to redis.StrictRedis) are specified as URL parameters
  • Options for connecting to Sentinel (keyword arguments to redis.sentinel.Sentinel) are specified with sentinel_ prefix
  • There is special client_type option to specify whether the default client should be master (the default) or slave service when connecting via Sentinel

Basic usage

Supports schemes supported by redis.StrictRedis.from_url and also redis+sentinel:// scheme described above:

import redis_sentinel_url

sentinel, client = redis_sentinel_url.connect('redis://localhost/0')
# None, StrictRedis(...)

sentinel, client = redis_sentinel_url.connect('rediss://localhost/0')
# None, StrictRedis(...)

sentinel, client = redis_sentinel_url.connect('unix://[:password]@/path/to/socket.sock?db=0')
# None, StrictRedis(...)

sentinel, client = redis_sentinel_url.connect('redis+sentinel://localhost:26379,otherhost:26479/mymaster/0')
# Sentinel(...), StrictRedis(...)
