Getting Started


This lib requires Node.js >=12.22.0, NestJS ^9.0.0, ioredis ^5.0.0.

  • If you depend on ioredis 4, please use version 7 of the lib.
  • If you depend on ioredis 5, NestJS 7 or 8, please use version 8 of the lib.


# with npm
npm install @songkeys/nestjs-redis ioredis
# with yarn
yarn add @songkeys/nestjs-redis ioredis
# with pnpm
pnpm add @songkeys/nestjs-redis ioredis




Circular dependency ⚠️

Click to expand

A circular dependency might also be caused when using "barrel files"/index.ts files to group imports. Barrel files should be omitted when it comes to module/provider classes. For example, barrel files should not be used when importing files within the same directory as the barrel file, i.e. cats/cats.controller should not import cats to import the cats/cats.service file. For more details please also see this github issue.

"Cannot resolve dependency" error

Click to expand

If you encountered an error like this:

Nest can't resolve dependencies of the <provider> (?). Please make sure that the argument <unknown_token> at index [<index>] is available in the <module> context.

Potential solutions:
- If <unknown_token> is a provider, is it part of the current <module>?
- If <unknown_token> is exported from a separate @Module, is that module imported within <module>?
    imports: [ /* the Module containing <unknown_token> */ ]

Please make sure that the RedisModule is added directly to the imports array of @Module() decorator of "Root Module"(if isGlobal is true) or "Feature Module"(if isGlobal is false).

Examples of code:

// redis-config.service.ts
import { Injectable } from '@nestjs/common';
import { RedisModuleOptions, RedisOptionsFactory } from '@songkeys/nestjs-redis';

export class RedisConfigService implements RedisOptionsFactory {
  createRedisOptions(): RedisModuleOptions {
    return {
      readyLog: true,
      config: {
        host: 'localhost',
        port: 6379,
        password: 'authpassword'


// app.module.ts
import { Module } from '@nestjs/common';
import { RedisModule } from '@songkeys/nestjs-redis';
import { RedisConfigService } from './redis-config.service';

  imports: [
      useClass: RedisConfigService
export class AppModule {}


// my-redis.module.ts
import { Module } from '@nestjs/common';
import { RedisModule } from '@songkeys/nestjs-redis';
import { RedisConfigService } from './redis-config.service';

  imports: [
      useClass: RedisConfigService
export class MyRedisModule {}
// app.module.ts
import { Module } from '@nestjs/common';
import { MyRedisModule } from './my-redis.module';

  imports: [MyRedisModule]
export class AppModule {}


  • [x] Compatible with NestJS ^9
  • [ ] Flexible custom logger
  • [ ] Add some examples for TLS
