I have explained the installation of Redis server in my previous post. Now I will explain a simple program to connect to the Redis server and perform Read/Write operations.


For interacting with Redis, we need a python package redis. This can be installed using pip.

pip install redis

You can also download and install the latest release from the github repository

Now lets write the program

import redis

# create the redis connection
r_conn = redis.Redis( host='localhost', port=6379)

# create a key-value pair with key as name and value as "amalgjose"
r_conn.set('name', 'amalgjose')

# retrieve the value by using the key
value = r_conn.get('name')
print("Value from Redis -->", value)

Execute the program and see whether the value is getting printed properly.
