Redis client mock object for unit testing
The goal of the
redis-mock project is to create a feature-complete mock of node_redis, which may be used interchangeably when writing unit tests for code that depends on
All operations are performed in-memory, so no Redis installation is required.
100% Redis-compatible (see Cross Verification)
$ 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 =client = redis;
Currently implemented are the following redis commands:
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.
redis-mock is work in progress, feel free to report an issue
