How to run Redis locally with Docker

How to run Redis locally with Docker

In this post, I want to share just one command to run Redis locally. That’s it, and it’ll be quick and easy.


Get and run Redis

docker run -it -p 6379:6379 --rm --name my-redis redis

That’s it!


Note: If you want to run something more customized, I recommend looking into the Redis documentation.

Redis client

I didn’t have the opportunity to work with Redis before, so when I looked at the CLI client, the commands were completely new to me. If you are looking for an easy way to view the data. I recommend QRedis.


sudo pip3 install qredis


qredis -p 6379


Ah! Much better.
