Smories is a Django app. Although the little server it runs on handles the spiky traffic fine I’ve been fiddling with Redis to prepare the site for when it eventually overtakes Facebook. I love Redis. It feels like a natural, ultra-performant extension to Python’s easy way of handling data types.
Redis usage at ☞ Smories:
- query cache: making using of the Redis data structures
- rate limiting: based on key expiration
- activity tracking: real-time tracker using Redis capped lists
Adding it to Powered by Redis.
