rdb-parser

node.js asynchronous streaming parser for redis RDB database dumps, written in 100% Javascript

Installation

npm install rdb-parser

Usage

var rdb = require('rdb-parser');

console.log(rdb.types);

var parser = new rdb.Parser();

parser.on('entity', function(e) {
  console.log(e);
});

parser.on('error', function(err) {
  throw err;
});

parser.on('end', function() {
  console.log('done');
});

process.stdin.pipe(parser);
process.stdin.resume();

Status

rdb-parser aims for complete coverage of rdb dumps.

It is close to complete at this point supporting all entity types, but may be missing one or two of the variety of encoding variations that redis can use. And it has had limited testing.

Tests

npm test parses a (rather small) .rdb file designed to exercise a variety of types and encodings.

How you can help

If you have a dump that rdb-parser cannot handle please report an issue and/or contribute the dump.
