Getting started with Redis Cache C#

This is a guide to get started with Redis cache on .NET.

  • Create a new visual studio console project. Then right click selects on Manage Nu-Get packages and select online option and search for “StackExchange” in the search field and install StackExchange.Redis.
  • Now to get connected to Redis and its database here is a snippet.
  •     // This should be stored and reused
    var redis = ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect(“localhost”);

    // IDatabase is simple object which is cheap to build
    IDatabase db = redis.GetDatabase();

  • To save a string value into a database:

     db.StringSet(“KeyName”, “KeyValue”);

  • In order to test this, we need to find out the value for key name.

    Console.WriteLine(db.StringGet(“KeyName”);

So, this is how you can get started with Redis cache using .NET to save and retrieve values in and out of a database.
