SmartNinja Redis - a wrapper that simulates Redis on localhost and uses real Redis in production.
A wrapper that simulates Redis on localhost (using TinyDB) and uses a real Redis db in production.
Important: This package is meant to be used at SmartNinja courses for learning purposes. It is not advised to use this package for serious projects. Use the default
redis package instead. You only need to change the import statement.
Install via pip:
pip install smartninja-redis
The package has two dependencies:
redis. It installs them automatically.
Access Redis via the
import smartninja_redis as redis r_url = redis.from_url(url="localhost") r_url.set(name="Ninja", value="Smart") print(r_url.get("Ninja"))
or via Redis class directly:
from smartninja_redis import Redis r_class = Redis(host="localhost") r_class.set(name="smart", value="ninja") print(r_class.get("smart"))
For now, only
get() methods work on localhost.
The following set() parameters do not work: ex, px, nx, xx
TinyDB is used to simulate Redis on localhost (if you don't have Redis installed and
REDIS_URL env var set). TinyDB does not store any data on disk (in this case). It uses memory storage only.
Using a real Redis service
If you'd like to use SmartNinja with a real Redis service (instead of TinyDB), make sure you have
REDIS_URL environment variable set.
