Dor Kalev’s idea of exposing Redis functionality over HTTP is extremely interesting. I’d like to suggest a couple of things:
make it RESTful
/set/KEY/VALUE: should be a PUT request to
/get/KEY: should be a GET to
I don’t really see the benefit of having Comet used as a way to get notifications for updated values (as suggested in the article).
Some Redis users are already discussing about a need for push notifications[^1]. I liked the way CouchDB is dealing with this requirement and suggested a similar solution for Redis. And I think Comet would play quite nicely with something like CouchDB’s
I think Comet would make more sense with the Redis list read operations
What else would you like to see?
