Getting Started


In these exercises, we assume you will be running your Node.js programs on the same system as the Redis server. This is often a logical architecture, and you will need to adjust accordingly if the Redis server is running on a different system.

As a first step, create a directory for your Redis Node.js programs, and navigate to that directory from the terminal:

$ mkdir redis-node
$ cd redis-node

Next, create a barebones package.json file as follows:

$ npm init -y

For these exercises, we will be using an NPM package called ioredis for interacting with Redis. Install this package and save it as a dependency in your package.json file:

$ npm install --save ioredis

We're ready to start writing some programs!
