But Redis doesn’t let you have several databases with this naming schema. So my teammates have used something else for their projects: redis-namespace. The idea is to prefix all keys with a given string (foobar_development in my previous example) and a separator (:) by subclassing the Redis library for Ruby.
I’m a bit confused as I knew Redis support multiple databases per server—indeed they don’t have a nice name, but just an index. Still it should work just fine for this scenario.
