Migrating Lua scripts

Migrating Lua scripts #

Redict is backwards-compatible with the Lua API used by Redis®1 OSS 7.2.4, and all Lua scripts targetting this version of Redis® will work with Redict without changes.

If you wish to update your Lua scripts to remove references to Redis®, you may simply substitute the “redis” global for “redict”, for instance by changing “redis.call” to “redict.call”.

Warning: Changing “redis” to “redict” in your Lua scripts will change the SHA-1 checksum of your script, which in turn will affect the hash you use with the EVALSHA and EVALSHA_RO commands.

For the complete description of Redict’s Lua API, see Scripting Redict with Lua.
