    redis-dump-tool

    Dump redis database into redis commands or json with command line or node.js

    Installation

    Installing npm (node package manager)

    $ curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

    Installing redis-dump-tool

    $ [sudo] npm install redis-dump-tool -g

    Note: If you are using redis-dump-tool programatically you should not install it globally.

    $ cd /path/to/your/project
    $ [sudo] npm install redis-dump-tool

    Usage

    There are two distinct ways to use redis-dump-tool: through the command line interface, or by requiring the redis-dump-tool module in your own code.

    Using redis-dump-tool from the command line

    The usage options are simple:

    $ redis-dump-tool --help
    Usage: redis-dump-tool [OPTIONS]
      -h <hostname>    Server hostname (default: 127.0.0.1)
      -p <port>        Server port (default: 6379)
      -d <db>          Database to be selected (default: 0)
      -f <filter>      Query filter (default: *)
      --convert        Convert from json to redis commands
      --help           Output this help and exit
      --json           Output result as json
      --pretty         Make pretty indented output (use with --json)
    
    Examples:
      redis-dump-tool
      redis-dump-tool -p 6500
      redis-dump-tool -f 'mydb:*' > mydb.dump.txt
      redis-dump-tool --json > mydb.json
    
    The output is a valid list of redis commands.
    That means the following will work:
      redis-dump-tool > dump.txt      # Dump redis database
      cat dump.txt | redis-cli   # Import redis database from generated file
    

    Example

    Let's say we have created a brand new redis database and have got the data generated from these commands:

    RPUSH   mydb:numberlist one two three
    SADD    mydb:numberset one two three
    ZADD    mydb:sortednumberset 1000 one 2000 two 3000 three
    HMSET   mydb:article:4 title 'Hello World' id 4
    SET     mydb:numvisits 34
    SET     mydb:volatile 'nothing important'
    EXPIRE  mydb:volatile 3600
    

    If we call redis-dump-tool, the output will look like this:

    $ redis-dump-tool -f 'mydb:*'
    DEL     mydb:numberlist
    RPUSH   mydb:numberlist one two three
    DEL     mydb:numberset
    SADD    mydb:numberset three two one
    DEL     mydb:sortednumberset
    ZADD    mydb:sortednumberset 1000 one 2000 two 3000 three
    DEL     mydb:article:4
    HMSET   mydb:article:4 title 'Hello World' id 4
    SET     mydb:numvisits 34
    DEL     mydb:volatile
    SET     mydb:volatile 'nothing important'
    EXPIRE  mydb:volatile 3600

    And with json output:

    $ redis-dump-tool -f 'mydb:*' --json
    {"mydb:numberlist":{"type":"list","value":["one","two","three"]},"mydb:numberset":{"type":"set","value":["three","two","one"]},"mydb:sortednumberset":{"type":"zset","value":[[1000,"one"],[2000,"two"],[3000,"three"]]},"mydb:volatile":{"type":"string","value":"nothing important","ttl":3466},"mydb:article:4":{"type":"hash","value":{"title":"Hello World","id":"4"}},"mydb:numvisits":{"type":"string","value":"34"}}
     
    $ redis-dump-tool -f 'mydb:*' --json --pretty > mydb.json

    The json maps all the informations from redis database in a handy way for other programming languages.

    {
        "mydb:numberlist": {
            "type": "list",
            "value": [
                "one",
                "two",
                "three"
            ]
        },
        "mydb:numberset": {
            "type": "set",
            "value": [
                "three",
                "two",
                "one"
            ]
        },
        "mydb:sortednumberset": {
            "type": "zset",
            "value": [
                [
                    1000,
                    "one"
                ],
                [
                    2000,
                    "two"
                ],
                [
                    3000,
                    "three"
                ]
            ]
        },
        "mydb:volatile": {
            "type": "string",
            "value": "nothing important",
            "ttl": 3466
        },
        "mydb:article:4": {
            "type": "hash",
            "value": {
                "title": "Hello World",
                "id": "4"
            }
        },
        "mydb:numvisits": {
            "type": "string",
            "value": "34"
        }
    }

    You can also convert json back to redis commands.

    $ cat mydb.json | redis-dump-tool --convert
    DEL     mydb:numberlist
    RPUSH   mydb:numberlist one two three
    DEL     mydb:numberset
    SADD    mydb:numberset three two one
    DEL     mydb:sortednumberset
    ZADD    mydb:sortednumberset 1000 one 2000 two 3000 three
    DEL     mydb:article:4
    HMSET   mydb:article:4 title 'Hello World' id 4
    SET     mydb:numvisits 34
    DEL     mydb:volatile
    SET     mydb:volatile 'nothing important'
    EXPIRE  mydb:volatile 3466

    Then, import your data back to redis can be done in one line from either format:

    $ cat mydb.json | redis-dump-tool --convert | redis-cli # from json
     
    $ cat dump.txt | redis-cli # from redis commands

    Using redis-dump-tool from node.js

    You can also use redis-dump-tool from inside your own node.js code.

    var dump = require('redis-dump-tool');
     
    dump({
      // These are default values, you can omit them
      filter: '*',
      port: 6379,
      host: '127.0.0.1'
    },
    function(err, result){
      // Do something with result
    });
