Starting Redis and the Redis CLI with Docker

January 08, 2021 docker redis

If you'd like to get a Redis instance up and running to play with it's fairly easy via Docker.

docker run --name my-redis -p 6379:6379 -d redis redis-server --appendonly yes

This will start a Redis instance with the name my-redis with persistent storage turned on. You can also start with Redis CLI via Docker.

docker run --link my-redis -it --rm redis redis-cli -h my-redis

You'll need to replace my-redis with whatever you named your Redis instance of course.
