faye-redis Build Status

This plugin provides a Redis-based backend for the Faye messaging server. It allows a single Faye service to be distributed across many front-end web servers by storing state and routing messages through a Redis database server.

Usage

Pass in the engine and any settings you need when setting up your Faye server.

var faye  = require('faye'),
    redis = require('faye-redis'),
    http  = require('http');

var server = http.createServer();

var bayeux = new faye.NodeAdapter({
  mount:    '/',
  timeout:  25,
  engine: {
    type:   redis,
    host:   'redis.example.com',
    // more options
  }
});

bayeux.attach(server);
server.listen(8000);

The full list of settings is as follows.

  • host - hostname of your Redis instance
  • port - port number, default is 6379
  • password - password, if requirepass is set
  • database - number of database to use, default is 0
  • namespace - prefix applied to all keys, default is ''
  • socket - path to Unix socket if unixsocket is set
