Redis Desktop Manager

Building and running the Redis Desktop Manager applicaiton on MacOS


Building from source MacOS

Following the instructions online..


  • Xcode and Homebrew - already installed
  • brew install openssl cmake python3
  • Install Qt 5.9. Add Qt Creator and under Qt 5.9.x add Qt Charts module (actual version installed: 5.9.9)

Get the source and prepare for build:

$ git clone --recursive -b 2019 rdm && cd ./rdm
$ cd ./src && cp ./resources/Info.plist.sample ./resources/Info.plist

Install Python requirements

# in rdm/src
pip3 install -t ../bin/osx/release -r py/requirements.txt

Open the project rdm/src/ in Qt Creator and build.


It will make a “Redis Desktop Manager” executable:

$ ls -al rdm/bin/osx/debug/Redis*
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 paulgallagher  staff  8931480 Mar 22 09:03 rdm/bin/osx/debug/Redis Desktop Manager

Running the app - works just fine!

Using it to inspect keys:


And inspecting server stats:

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LittleCodingKata GitHub repository.

LittleCodingKata is my collection of programming exercises, research and code toys broadly spanning things that relate to programming and software development (languages, frameworks and tools).

These range from the trivial to the complex and serious. Many are inspired by existing work and I'll note credits and references where applicable. The focus is quite scattered, as I variously work on things new and important in the moment, or go back to revisit things from the past.

This is primarily a personal collection for my own edification and learning, but anyone who stumbles by is welcome to borrow, steal or reference the work here. And if you spot errors or issues I'd really appreciate some feedback - create an issue, send me an email or even send a pull-request.
