redis-mock

Redis client mock object for unit testing

redis-mock

The goal of the redis-mock project is to create a feature-complete mock of https://github.com/mranney/node_redis, so that it may be used interchangeably when writing unit tests for code that depends on redis.

All operations are performed in-memory, why no Redis installation is required. 100% redis compatible (see cross verification)

Installation

$ npm install redis-mock --save-dev

The below code demonstrates a example of using the redis-mock client in node.js/io.js

var redis = require("redis-mock"),
    client = redis.createClient();

API

Currently implemented are the following redis commands:

  • createClient
  • end
  • ready
  • connect
  • end
  • quit
  • subscribe
  • unsubscribe
  • message
  • publish
  • subscribe
  • unsubscribe
  • del
  • keys
  • exists
  • expire
  • ttl
  • incr
  • incrby
  • incrbyfloat
  • get
  • set
  • mget
  • setex
  • setnx
  • ping
  • hset
  • hsetnx
  • hget
  • hexists
  • hdel
  • hlen
  • hgetall
  • hmset
  • hmget
  • hkeys
  • hincrby
  • hincrbyfloat
  • llen
  • lpush
  • rpush
  • lpushx
  • rpushx
  • lpop
  • rpop
  • blpop
  • brpop
  • lindex
  • lset
  • flushdb
  • flushall

Cross verification

If you want to add new tests to the test base it is important that they work too on node_redis (we are creating a mock...). You can therefore run the tests using redis instead of redis-mock. To do so:

$ make check-tests

You will need to have a running instance of redis on you machine and our tests use flushdb a lot so make sure you don't have anything important on it.

Roadmap

redis-mock is work in progress, feel free to report an issue
