A Redis Client for Crystal
This week I have published Crystal-Redis, a Redis client for the Crystal programming language. It is open source, full featured, well documented and is very fast.
A few months ago I got excited about the new programming language Crystal. Crystal is the logical next step for Ruby programmers. It offers a Ruby like syntax, but is staticly typed and compiles to native code, which makes it much faster. Like Go, it has a coroutines and channels based concurrency model, allowing true parallelism. And Crystal compiles to staticly linked binaries, making deployment simple.
The project turned our great: Crystal-Redis has amazing performance, a very convenient API, good documentation and examples and was very well received by other developers.
