redis-token-bucket

0.0.1 • Public • Published

Introduction

This module implements a token bucket, using Redis as a coordinator. This is primarily useful as a rate limiter.

Some features:

  • Fast: about 7 million token operations per minute, tested on an i9-8950HK (much faster than similar modules on NPM that use Redis Sorted Sets)
  • Space-efficient: Redis only stores the token count, and last refill time
  • No dependencies

Example Usage

const redis = require('redis');
const redis_token_bucket = require('redis-token-bucket');
const client = redis.createClient()    
const consume = redis_token_bucket.getConsumer(client);
 
consume('example_bucket_key', {
    refill_interval_ms: 1000,   // How often should new tokens be added to the bucket?
    max_bucket_size: 60,        // How big is the bucket?
    cost: 1                     // optional, if you want to consume more than 1 token
})
.then(result => {
    if (result.tokensLeft < 0) {
        console.log(`Error, wait ${result.timeLeftMs} milliseconds before retrying`);
    } else {
        console.log('Success');
    }
});
