Redis

This guide covers configuring continuous integration pipelines for projects that have a Redis dependency. If you’re new to Drone please read our Tutorial and build configuration guides first.

Basic Example

In the below example we demonstrate a pipeline that launches a Redis service container. The database server will be available at redis:6379, where the hostname matches the service container name.

kind: pipeline
name: default

steps:
- name: test
  image: redis
  commands:
  - sleep 5
  - redis-cli -h redis ping
  - redis-cli -h redis set FOO bar
  - redis-cli -h redis get FOO

services:
- name: redis
  image: redis
  ports:
  - 6379

Common Problems

Initialization

If you are unable to connect to the Postgres container please make sure you are giving Postgres adequate time to initialize and begin accepting connections.

kind: pipeline
name: default

steps:
- name: test
  image: redis
  commands:
  - sleep 15
  - redis-cli -h redis ping

Incorrect Hostname

You cannot use 127.0.0.1 or localhost to connect with the Redis container. If you are unable to connect to the Redis container please verify you are using the correct hostname, corresponding with the name of the redis service container.

Bad:

steps:
- name: test
  image: redis
  commands:
  - sleep 15
  - redis-cli -h localhost ping

Good:

steps:
- name: test
  image: redis
  commands:
  - sleep 15
  - redis-cli -h redis ping
