NAME

CHI::Driver::Redis - Redis driver for CHI

SYNOPSIS

    use CHI;
    my $foo = CHI->new(
        driver => 'Redis',
        namespace => 'foo',
        server => '127.0.0.1:6379',
        debug => 0
    );

DESCRIPTION

A CHI driver that uses "Redis" to store the data. Care has been taken to not have this module fail in fiery ways if the cache is unavailable. It is my hope that if it is failing and the cache is not required for your work, you can ignore its warnings.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Namespaces.

Redis does not have namespaces. Therefore, we have to do some hoop-jumping.
Namespaces are tracked in a set named "chinamespaces". This is a list of all the namespaces the driver has seen.
Keys in a namespace are stored in a set that shares the name of the namespace. The actual value is stored as "$namespace||key".

Encoding

This CHI driver uses Redis.pm. Redis.pm by default automatically encodes values to UTF-8. This driver sets the Redis encoding option to undef to disable automatic encoding.

CONSTRUCTOR OPTIONS

"redis"
option for the constructed "Redis" object
"redis_options"
for hash of options to the "Redis" constructor
Other options, including "server", "debug", and "password" are passed to the "Redis" constructor.

ATTRIBUTES

redis

Contains the underlying "Redis" object.
