Redis is an open source (BSD licensed), in-memory data structure store used as a database, cache, message broker, and streaming engine.

More information can be found in the official Redis docs.

You will then be prompted to provide the URL, port, username and password.

Create

This is the equivalent of Redis' SET command. Enter a key / string value pair.

Ttl stands for Time-to-live and is the number of seconds that the data structure will exist. Leave this blank if you want your key/value to never expire.

Only strings are supported by this function.

Read

This is the equivalent of Redis' GET command. Simply enter a key you want to get. The response will return the mapped value.

Delete

This is the equivalent of Redis' DEL command, except you can only delete a single key at a time.
