📡 P3X Redis UI is a very functional handy database GUI and works in your pocket on the responsive web or as a desktop app v2021.10.105
Bugs are evident™ - MATRIX️
NodeJs LTS Version Requirement
Built on NodeJs
Only the latest LTS variant is supported.
p3x-redis-ui is a new Redis GUI which can serve as a backend server or as a desktop application.
Some of the features are coming below.
The best use case for this Redis GUI, if you manage tons of JSON, as it includes JSONEditor and ACE. Check out the different options in the edit json button dialog. :)
If you are reading the
readme fom Docker, the links are not working, please read the
readme from GitHub or Corifeus @
It is not recommend to generate the configuration
JSON via a text editor. The perfect solution is to generate the configuration in the GUI, then apply for example in Kubernetes.
The online current version
This Redis database every day in the morning European time CET restores some data, so you may do whatever you want to do.
Besides, you could experience the test app to exit for 1 second, because it could auto update itself. It auto updates itself when the code from Git changes.
Third, it is a snapshot, it is possible, that the features are different from GitHub or NPM as the releases are usually monthly or as they happen.
After downloading the
AppImage, make it an executable.
mkdir -p $HOME/opt mv ~/Downloads/p3x-redis-ui-a.b.c-x86_64.AppImage $HOME/opt/ chmod +x $HOME/opt/p3x-redis-ui-a.b.c-x86_64.AppImage # Then you can run it $HOME/opt/p3x-redis-ui-a.b.c-x86_64.AppImage &
(The GitHub versions are always instant, while the ElectronJs Apps releases are delayed.)
Start up with a server or via a browser and NodeJs/NPM
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/patrikx3/redis-ui/master/docker-compose.yml # You might want to tune the settings folder in the docker-compose.yml. # the /home/user/p3x-redis-ui-settings settings folder in yml should be set by yourself. docker-compose up
# you can tune the settings folder # in the -v first part is where you can set your own folder mkdir -p ./p3x-redis-ui-settings docker run -v $PWD/p3x-redis-ui-settings:/settings -h docker-p3x-redis-ui -p 7843:7843 -t -i patrikx3/p3x-redis-ui
The GUI will be @ http://localhost:7843
A complete example of deployment
p3x-redis-ui in kubernetes using raw manifests
kubectl apply -f namespace.yaml # Do not forget to edit redis host and password configuration kubectl apply -f configmap.yaml kubectl apply -f deployment.yaml kubectl apply -f service.yaml kubectl apply -f ingress.yaml
p3x-redis-ui deployment in kubernetes
helm template -f values.yaml release --namespace namespace . > generated.yaml kubectl apply -f generated.yaml
- You can override the server port via an environment variable
- In the connections, you can enable read only mode, which means, the user will not be able to modify via gui and the console (only pub/sub monitor and select database is allowed) is disabled.
- In a sub-directory, you can use Nginx/Ingress to rewrite your paths.
- To show the menu in the desktop version, click ALT
- There is a new feature in the settings/tree setting, which limits the received keys, the minimum is 100, the maximum is 100k, so there is no more crash, because of that
v2020.4.189, the tree can handle bigger key count, as of now, we are using deferred rendering for the tree - only rendering what is in the viewport, so it should be much faster versus rendering everything at once
- Please, check out your Redis use case, if this program can cover your requirements
- Does not handle binary data
- Does not work with sentinel, but it will be developed at some point of time
- Has cluster support
- Able to monitor all channel messages on the console by using a checkbox.
- Works with multiple languages
- Works as a backend
- Works as a desktop via Electron
- Starts with no settings without config, or setup your own config
- Able to create, test, save, delete multiple connections or a readonly connections setup, for shared usage
- Able to use the console and interact with Redis
- TAB or SHIFT + TAB completion like bash is enabled
- Cursor UP or DOWN history is enabled
- Online you are able to choose the tree separator, for example :, /, -, space etc... or even empty separator
- It is based on Redis-Commander and phpRedisAdmin
- You can select the database via console or the drop down.
- The database select drop down shows if the checked database is empty or filled, so you can always know which is filled
- Save button to save the db
- Full statistics pages, can be useful
- This is just a New Kind on the Block in the Redis world, so, of course, there are advantages and disadvantages in the other Redis GUIs
- Dark - Dracula / light themes
- Client side mode searching in keys - small key set
- Server side mode searching in keys - large key set
- Search mode
- the search keys starts with a string key
- the search keys includes a string in the key
- The app is responsive, it works on a phone/tablet as well
- There is a key sorting function, which has a penalty, because it sorts with natural-compare, which means it is more human display, then just raw characters, but up to 100k the keys is still ok.
- For big key set to be usable paging should be a maximum 1000 keys / page, though for 250 is the sweetest spot
For file names do not use camelCase, but use kebab-case. Folder should be named as kebab-case as well. As you can see, all code filenames are using it like that, please do not change that.
Please apply the
.editorconfig settings in your IDE.
It creates a package that allows you to compose
p3x-redis-ui-material into one:
If you develop on this app, you are required to test, that all JS you code write is working with Electron (as the embedded Electron NodeJs version is usually below the real NodeJs). Once the server and client is running as above, you clone this repo and test like this:
# terminal 1 git clone https://github.com/patrikx3/redis-ui-material.git cd redis-ui-material npm install npm run dev # terminal 2 git clone https://github.com/patrikx3/redis-ui-server.git cd redis-ui-server npm install npm run dev # if you are not working on Electron, at this point you can fire the browser # @ http://localhost:8080/ # terminal 3 git clone https://github.com/patrikx3/redis-ui.git cd redis-ui npm install ./scripts/start-local.sh # or .\scripts\start-local.cmd
Development of the translations
By default, only English is created, but given all strings are from a
JS file, it is very quick to spawn another language eg. German, French, Spanish etc ...
For a new language:
This solution is not using REST at all, but instead uses Socket.IO
Reference for Socket.IO speed
Possible, this server, rarely, is down, please, hang on for 15-30 minutes and the server will be back up.
Note about versioning: Versions are cut in Major.Minor.Patch schema. Major is always the current year. Minor is either 4 (January - June) or 10 (July - December). Patch is incremental by every build. If there is a breaking change, it should be noted in the readme.
