Redis (short for Remote Dictionary Server) is an in-memory data structure project that supports strings, hashes, sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, geospatial indexes with radius queries and streams.
Thanks to Redis’ database-like nature, managing its contents efficiently requires specialized software such as Redily. In short, Redily is a modern Redis GUI/database manager/client designed to help developers improve productivity.
For starters, it’s worth noting that Redily supports secure connections to Bitnami VMs, Google Memcache, Amazon Elastcache, Azure Redis, and Redis Labs. The application also boasts a very competent and advanced key editor.
The editor supports anything from Strings, to Hash, Set, List, and Sorted Set keys. As expected, it also boasts all the modern tools one might come to expect from an editor of this sort namely code formatting features, find and replace, foldable blocks, and syntax highlighting.
Last but not least, developers should also know that Redily allows them to connect to an unlimited number of Redis instances, and even share them with their team. The app allows users to connect and manage scalable Redis clusters and high-availability sentinels (with the added bonus of allowing forwarding connections to private sentinels and clusters via SSH tunnel).
Working with Redily does not require much experience or effort on your behalf. The main window is perfectly split into three main sections: one the left the Connections panel, in the middle the Keys panel, and the Editor on the right.
You can add, edit, and remove connections from the list, as well as import or export them with no more than a few mouse clicks. There’s also a basic menu bar at the top of the main window. From the File menu, you can add new connections or opt to import and export already existing ones, as well as access the Preferences menu.
All in all, Redily is a nifty and modern Redis GUI developer tool that will surely make the lives of users who are required to deal with Redis databases on a daily basis a lot easier.
