Build CouchApps-style Applications with Redis and Webdis

Webdis is simple Web server that forwards commands to Redis, a NoSQL database, and returns information in formats such as JSON and PubSub. You could use it to build JavaScript applications that interface with Redis without any other middle layer, much like the CouchApps built with Apache CouchDB. It also includes access controls, so that only certain users will have write access to certain areas of the database. CouchApps get around this by giving every user their own database.

Other features include:

  • HTTP Pipelining
  • Connections to Redis using TCP or UNIX sockets
  • Restricted user/group
  • Logs, contributed by Michael Bernstein
  • Cross-Origin Request Sharing (CORS) for XmlHttpRequest2
  • Daemonize on start

Future plans include support for Websockets.
