Fast bindings to redis using hiredis. Note that you will need to fetch the git submodules in this package. These bindings provide only the synchornous API and at the moment do not provide timeouts.

[procedure] (redis-connect hostname port)

Connect to a redis host, will produce an error if the connection fails. Returns an opaque pointer to the redis context.

[procedure] (redis-command context string)

Send the string as a command to redis and parse the reply. Arrays are converted into lists.


   (redis-command (redis-connect "" 6379) "keys *")

This will produce a list of strings, the keys in the redis database.
