Quick Start Challenge: Redis on Windows

Sign in to queue


Curious about Redis? Check out this Quick Start Challenge! Learn how to install Redis on Windows and how to access Redis from a Python script running on Windows, through use of the redis-py module. (Redis-py is a popular Python interface to Redis.)

Write a script that displays a pattern of text on the screen and that publishes the pattern to a Redis channel. Then, write a second script that "listens" on the same Redis channel and that prints received messages on the screen.

    Thanks for this tutorial.

    I am having a bit of difficulty.

    When I enter the command in gitshell -> msbuild .\RedisServer.sln

    I get 6 errors saying:

    C:\Users\George\redis\lua\lua.vcxproj(27,3): error MSB4019: The imported project "C:\Microsoft.Cpp.Defualt.props" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.

    Any help would be great!
