Redis as dictionary

Project description


Redis is a key-value database. Interestingly Python dictionaries are some how key-value data structure. So why not write a wrapper that map Python dictionary to Redis server.


Simply you can install it from PyPi by following command:

pip install -U redisary

or if you prefer the latest development version, you can install it from the source:

git clone
cd redisary
python install


A very simple usage could be like:

from redisary import Redisary

redis = Redisary(host='', db=0)

redis['k'] = 'data'
data = redis['k']

Well it works like a normal dictionary, the only advantage is data now stored on Redis and we could access it from another process.

We also could set an expire for all keys of dictionary:

from redisary import Redisary

redis = Redisary(expire=800)

redis['k'] = 'temporary'


  • [x] Map Redis 'string' to Python 'str'
  • [ ] Map Redis 'list' to Python 'list'
  • [ ] Map Redis 'hash' to Python 'dict'
  • [ ] Map Redis 'set' to Python 'set'
  • [ ] Map Redis 'sorted set' to something!
