npm install simple_redis
var simple = require("simple_redis");

simple.request("", {connect_timeout: 1000}, function(error, client, info) {
    if (error) {
        throw error;
    // do what you need 
    client.set("pi", Math.PI);

  • Requiring

simple.request(email, redis_client_options, callback);
simple.request(email, callback);
