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


    use CHI;

    my $foo = CHI->new(
        driver => 'Redis',
        namespace => 'foo',
        server => '',
        debug => 0


A CHI driver that uses Redis to store the data. Care has been taken to not have this module fail in firey 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 it's warnings.


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".

So, to illustrate. If you store a value foo: bar in namespace baz, Redis will contain something like the following:


server and debug are passed to Redis.



Contains the underlying Redis object.
