Make redis client be interchangable

See original GitHub issue

Hey just started using apicache, awesome so far. My problem is our production server is running on AWS with Elasticache (which as a default config is an redis-cluster) so my question is. Could it be possible to swap out the client to something like ioredis which supports cluster.

The code currently breaking at first glance is: return sendCachedResponse(res, JSON.parse(obj.response)) because the result from ioredis is slightly different.

Can’t believe I left this ticket open for so long… this has long since been addressed by @Rauttis (added ioredis support)


import Redis from 'ioredis';
import apicache from 'apicache';
const redis = new Redis(6379, '');
const router = express.Router();

const cache = apicache.options({
  redisClient: redis

const onlyStatus200 = (req, res) => res.statusCode === 200;

const cacheSuccesses = cache('5 minutes', onlyStatus200);

router.get('/cats', cacheSuccesses, async (req, res, next) => {
  cats.allCats(req, res, next);
