Redis support for Muffin framework.

Project description

Muffin-Redis – Redis support for Muffin framework.

Tests Status PYPI Version Python Versions


  • python >= 3.7


Muffin-Redis should be installed using pip:

pip install muffin-redis

To install fakeredis (for testing purposes):

pip install muffin-redis[fake]


Setup the plugin and connect it into your app:

from muffin import Application
from muffin_redis import Plugin as Redis

# Create Muffin Application
app = Application('example')

# Initialize the plugin
# As alternative: redis = Redis(app, **options)
redis = Redis(address='redis://localhost')

That’s it now you are able to use the plugin inside your views:

@app.route('/some_url', methods=['POST'])
async def some_method(request):
    """Work with redis."""
    value = await redis.get('key')
    if value is None:
        value = ...  # Do some work
        await redis.set('key', value, expire=60)

    return value

For Asyncio the muffin-redis uses aioredis library. So check the library’s docs for futher reference.
