Connect Your Client

Upstash works with Redis® API, that means you can use any Redis client with Upstash. At the Redis Clients page you can find the list of Redis clients in different languages.

Probably, the easiest way to connect to your database is to use redis-cli. Because it is already covered in Getting Started, we will skip it here.

Database

After completing the getting started guide, you will see the database page as below:

The information required for Redis clients is displayed here as Endpoint, Port and Password. Also when you click on Connect button, you can copy the code that is required for your client.

Below we will give examples from popular Redis clients, but the above information should help you to configure all Redis clients similarly.

note

If you have enabled TLS in your database, please refer to Connect With TLS section instead.

Node.js

Library: ioredis

Example:

const Redis = require("ioredis");

let client = new Redis("redis://:YOUR_PASSWORD@YOUR_ENDPOINT:YOUR_PORT");
await client.set('foo', 'bar');
let x = await client.get('foo');
console.log(x);

Python

Library: redis-py

Example:

import redis
r = redis.Redis(
host= 'YOUR_ENDPOINT',
port= 'YOUR_PORT',
password= 'YOUR_PASSWORD')
r.set('foo','bar')
print(r.get('foo'))

Java

Library: jedis

Example:

Jedis jedis = new Jedis("YOUR_ENDPOINT", "YOUR_PORT");
jedis.auth("YOUR_PASSWORD");
jedis.set("foo", "bar");
String value = jedis.get("foo");
System.out.println(value);

GoLang

Library: redigo

Example:

func main() {
c, err := redis.Dial("tcp", "YOUR_ENDPOINT:YOUR_PORT")
if err != nil {
panic(err)
}

_, err = c.Do("AUTH", "YOUR_PASSWORD")
if err != nil {
panic(err)
}

_, err = c.Do("SET", "foo", "bar")
if err != nil {
panic(err)
}

value, err := redis.String(c.Do("GET", "foo"))
if err != nil {
panic(err)
}

println(value)
}
