Database management application for OS X designed to help work with Redis data structure servers in a clean and user-friendly environment
The Redis key-value databases have become quite popular and are used to create data structures that contain strings, lists, sets, or hashes. In addition, the Redis database servers are compatible with different programming languages, such as C, C++, ActionScript, Clojure, Objective-C, PHP, Python, and so on.
RDM offers you the possibility to connect to local or remote Redis servers and allows you to see the database structure and manage the content in a well-organized user interface.
Quickly connect to Redis servers and save configuration files
Within the main window you must start by connecting to a Redis server: define a connection name, provide the host address, the available port, and provide the authentication password if necessary.
To increase the security level, RDM enables you to connect to the Redis server using the SSL protocol or an SSH tunnel. In the Advanced Settings panel, you can define a key’s glob-style pattern, add a namespace separator, and setup connection and execution timeout intervals.
The best part is that RDM integrates exporting and importing capabilities when it comes to connection configurations, so you have to deal with these details just once.
Browse the Redis database and manage the key-values
In the main window you can see the database structure and the keys associated with each group. The app allows you to edit pre-existent entries, but you can also make new ones.
RDM provides support for all the fundamental Redis key types while their value can be viewed as plain text, JSON, MSGPACK, HEX, HEX table, or PHP Serialized. Furthermore, the database entries can be sorted using regex filters.
To conclude, RDM comes with a clean GUI for managing the content of Redis servers in a streamlined manner. However, Redis Desktop Manager also comes with a built-in console that can be employed for more complex commands.
