Create a new file docker-compose.yml under any directory, In our case, we are using the following project structure.

Project (Directory)
├── docker-compose.yml (File)

Docker Compose YAML file

In the above file, we are creating a container for Redis which accepts a connection on port no. 6379

To start the container, Run the following command in the terminal

docker-compose up

When you run the above command you will see the following output in the terminal.

Redis GUI Client (Free Open Source )

To test the connection we are using Redis GUI Client for testing called Another Redis Desktop Manager. you can download it from the following link

It’s free, Available for the following platforms

  1. Windows
  2. macOS
  3. Linux

Open the Another Redis Desktop Manager, Make sure your Redis docker container is running. Click on the New Connection as shown below

Then input host: 127.0.0.1 and port: 6379 then click on the ok button as shown in the following screenshot.

Once the connection established, you will see the following screen.

Now click on the terminal icon as shown below.

Then you will see the following window.

Type the following command and hit enter. It will create new key with value welcome with 1000 ttl

SETEX mykey 1000 "Welcome"

Once the new key has been created, then you will see the following output ok

To GET the key type the following command

get mykey

Then you will see the following ouput

Now click on the refresh button as shown below.

Then you can see in the GUI. The key has been created

We are done with Docker Redis and GUI
