📡 P3X Redis UI is a very functional handy database GUI and works in your pocket on the responsive web or as a desktop app

p3x-redis-ui is a versatile Redis GUI that can function as either a backend server on the web or as a desktop application. This open-source software is particularly effective for managing JSON, featuring integration with JSONEditor and ACE. Explore a variety of options in the 'edit json' button dialog, which also supports uploading and downloading binary data. Additionally, it handles SSH, cluster, and sentinel configurations.


Configuration and Security 

  • Secure Configuration: Setup is intricate due to its roots in shared web applications, ensuring that passwords and sensitive data are safeguarded with unique identifiers for both main and node configurations. Node-specific IDs enhance security measures for node passwords.

Compatibility and Usage 

  • Redis Versions and TLS: Supports Redis 6 with TLS, enhancing security and data integrity.
  • Pika Compatibility: Compatible with Pika, though not perfectly optimized.
  • SSH Tunneling: Functional for single instances. Support for cluster and sentinel configurations is under development.
  • Environmental Customizations: Customize the server port and home directory via P3XRS_PORT and P3XRS_DOCKER_HOME environment variables.

Data Handling 

  • Binary Data Management: Special care is needed when handling binary data to prevent issues. Use the download button for binary data; direct editing in text mode is not supported for binary content.
  • Large Data Sets: Handles values larger than 256 kB, indicated by [object ArrayBuffer]. For large values, utilize binary upload and download capabilities.
  • Clipboard Operations: Text copying is supported directly; binary data requires using the download functionality.

User Interface and Experience 

  • Desktop Shortcuts: Access menus in the desktop version by pressing ALT.
  • Responsive Design: Fully responsive, ensuring usability on phones and tablets.
  • Themes: Choose between Dark - Dracula and light themes for personalized visual comfort.
  • Data Visualization and Management:
    • Tree view settings allow adjustments to key count from a minimum of 100 to a maximum of 100,000 to prevent crashes.
    • Deferred rendering in the tree view enhances performance by rendering only what is visible in the viewport.

Advanced Features 

  • Monitoring and Logging: Monitor all channel messages on the console with a simple checkbox. Console history is stored indefinitely in local storage, keeping the last 20 entries accessible.
  • Database Interaction: Select databases via the console or a dropdown menu, which also indicates whether databases are empty or filled.
  • Search Functionality:
    • Client-side mode for searching small sets of keys.
    • Server-side mode for efficient searching within large sets of keys.
    • Search can be configured to start with a specific string or include a string within the keys.

Network Setup and Extensions 

  • Sub-directory Support: Utilize Nginx/Ingress to rewrite paths when used in a sub-directory.

Contributions and Support 

  • Cluster Support: Recently added and continuously improving. Contributions by @devthejo have significantly enhanced this functionality.
  • Community and Feedback: As this tool evolves, feedback and issue reporting are highly valued to refine and improve the features.

Redis UI provides a powerful interface for managing Redis databases with a focus on security, efficiency, and user experience. Whether you are dealing with small or large data sets, p3x-redis-ui offers robust solutions tailored to meet diverse operational needs.

Important Notice 

To ensure accuracy and minimize errors, we strongly advise against manually creating the configuration JSON file using a text editor. Instead, utilize the GUI to generate the configuration, which can then be seamlessly integrated into systems like Kubernetes.

Operational Insights: 

  • Data Restoration: Our Redis database automatically restores certain datasets every morning at CET, offering a fresh start daily. Feel free to experiment as needed.

  • Application Stability: You may notice brief downtime (about 1 second) in our test application, possibly due to automatic updates triggered by changes in the Git repository.

  • Version Consistency: Please be aware that the live snapshot might differ from the versions available on GitHub or NPM. Updates and new features are typically released monthly or as developments occur.

Example of config connections





wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/patrikx3/redis-ui/master/docker-compose.yml
# You might want to tune the settings folder in the docker-compose.yml.
# the /home/user/p3x-redis-ui-settings settings folder in yml should be set by yourself.
docker-compose up


# you can tune the settings folder
# in the -v first part is where you can set your own folder
mkdir -p ./p3x-redis-ui-settings
docker run -v $PWD/p3x-redis-ui-settings:/settings -h docker-p3x-redis-ui -p 7843:7843 -t -i patrikx3/p3x-redis-ui

The GUI will be @ http://localhost:7843

The contributors readme


For file names do not use camelCase, but use kebab-case. Folder should be named as kebab-case as well. As you can see, all code filenames are using it like that, please do not change that. Please apply the .editorconfig settings in your IDE.

It creates a package that allows you to compose p3x-redis-ui-server and p3x-redis-ui-material into one:

Server on GitHub
Client on GitHub

If you develop on this app, you are required to test, that all JS you code write is working with Electron (as the embedded Electron NodeJs version is usually below the real NodeJs). Once the server and client is running as above, you clone this repo and test like this:

# terminal 1
git clone https://github.com/patrikx3/redis-ui-material.git
cd redis-ui-material
npm install
npm run dev

# terminal 2
git clone https://github.com/patrikx3/redis-ui-server.git
cd redis-ui-server
npm install
npm run dev

# if you are not working on Electron, at this point you can fire the browser
# @ http://localhost:8080/

# terminal 3 
git clone https://github.com/patrikx3/redis-ui.git
cd redis-ui
npm install
# or

Development of the translations 

By default, only English is created, but given all strings are from a JS file, it is very quick to spawn another language eg. German, French, Spanish etc ...

For a new language English strings, for the web UI
English strings, for the Electron

Moment a new language for vendor (require moment/locale)
JSON Editor, to incorporate a new language
Moment a new language for Material (momentDateMap)
Humanize duration


Interestingly, this solution doesn't employ REST; it opts for Socket.IO instead! 😄 It might seem a bit unconventional, but I actually appreciate the choice. Using Socket.IO is expected to be more responsive, as it avoids the significant overhead associated with the HTTP protocol. This approach should provide a smoother and faster interaction experience.
