tornadis is an async minimal redis client for tornado ioloop designed for performance (uses C hiredis parser).
WARNING : tornadis is considered in beta quality (API can change)
# Let's import tornado and tornadis import tornado import tornadis def talk_to_redis(): # let's (re)connect (autoconnect mode), call the ping redis command # and wait the reply without blocking the tornado ioloop # Note: call() method on Client instance returns a Future object (and # should be used as a coroutine). result = yield client.call("PING") if isinstance(result, tornadis.TornadisException): # For specific reasons, tornadis nearly never raises any exception # they are returned as result print "got exception: %s" % result else: # result is already a python object (a string in this simple example) print "Result: %s" % result # Build a tornadis.Client object with some options as kwargs # host: redis host to connect # port: redis port to connect # autoconnect=True: put the Client object in auto(re)connect mode client = tornadis.Client(host="localhost", port=6379, autoconnect=True) # Start a tornado IOLoop, execute the coroutine and end the program loop = tornado.ioloop.IOLoop.instance() loop.run_sync(talk_to_redis)
