Go-ReJSON - a golang client for ReJSON (a JSON data type for Redis)

Go-ReJSON is a Go client for ReJSON Redis Module.

Go Reference test code-analysis codecov Go Report Card GitHub release

ReJSON is a Redis module that implements ECMA-404 The JSON Data Interchange Standard as a native data type. It allows storing, updating and fetching JSON values from Redis keys (documents).

Primary features of ReJSON Module:

* Full support of the JSON standard
* JSONPath-like syntax for selecting element inside documents
* Documents are stored as binary data in a tree structure, allowing fast access to sub-elements
* Typed atomic operations for all JSON values types

Each and every feature of ReJSON Module is fully incorporated in the project.

Enjoy ReJSON with the type-safe Redis client, Go-Redis/Redis or use the print-like Redis-api client GoModule/Redigo. Go-ReJSON supports both the clients. Use any of the above two client you want, Go-ReJSON helps you out with all its features and functionalities in a more generic and standard way.

Support for mediocregopher/radix and other Redis clients is in our RoadMap. Any contributions to the support for other clients is hearty welcome.
