>> Hello all,
>> After a discussion about HTTP interfaces to Redis on IRC, I have put
>> together a simple web server exposing Redis functions over HTTP:
>> Webdis is only a week old, and I'm not really sure what will come of it; I
>> would like this announcement to bring comments and suggestions for this
>> project, and I hope people will get interested.
>> The basic interface is the following: /COMMAND/arg0/arg1/.../argN,
>> returning a JSON object with the command as a key and Redis' response as a
>> value. A few examples:
>> $ curl http://127.0.0.1:7379/SET/hello/world
>> $ curl http://127.0.0.1:7379/GET/hello
>> $ curl http://127.0.0.1:7379/PING
>> The raw Redis output is available by appending the query string
>> "?format=raw" to the command:
>> $ curl http://127.0.0.1:7379/LRANGE/x/0/-1?format=raw
>> So far, the following features have been implemented:
>> - GET and POST commands.
>> - JSON output by default, optional JSONP parameter.
>> - Raw Redis 2.0 protocol output with ?format=raw
>> - HTTP 1.1 pipelining (measured over 50,000 http requests per second on
>> a desktop Linux machine with Apache Benchmark).
>> - Connects to Redis using a TCP or UNIX socket.
>> - Restricted commands by IP range (CIDR subnet + mask), returning 403
>> errors for unauthorized clients.
>> - Possible Redis authentication in the config file.
>> My main priorities are client-side timeouts and a working pub/sub system,
>> making it a Comet server using redis pub/sub channels. Adding support for
>> Web Sockets would be pretty cool too.
>> Webdis is pretty fast so far, thanks to the libevent HTTP implementation.
>> I look forward to seeing people play with it and I welcome all comments
>> suggestions; I'm having fun working on it.
