Zunion Range Score, an interesting scripting solution.
Written on March 28, 2014 by Josiah Carlson
Released into the public domain
Zunion Range Score performs a Redis ZUNIONSTORE operation, selecting *only
those items in the provided ranges. The scores are added. Proof of concept.
Warning: untested, use at your own risk.
from hashlib import sha1
import json
from uuid import uuid4
def zunion_range_score(conn, ranges_scores, sha=[]):
conn - Redis connection
ranges_scores - a dictionary mapping "key" to (min, max) ranges of
scores (passed directly to Redis)
This function returns the union of all keys with the ranges of scores to
pull from. Intersection and mixed-mode left as an exersize to the reader.
tempkey = str(uuid4())
keys, argv = zip(*sorted(ranges_scores.items()))
argv = [json.dumps(argv)]
if sha:
return conn.evalsha(sha[0], keys=keys + [tempkey], argv=argv)
return conn.eval(_union_range_score_lua, keys=keys + [tempkey], argv=argv)
_union_range_score_lua = '''
-- KEYS: [key1, key2, ..., keyn, tempkey]
ARGV: [JSON([[min1, max1], [min2, max2], ...])]
local _ARGV = cjson.decode(ARGV[1])
local dest = KEYS.remove()
for i = 1, #_ARGV do
local _a = _ARGV[i]; table.insert(_a, 'withscores')
local chunk ='ZRANGEBYSCORE', KEYS[i], unpack(a))
for i = 1, #chunk, 2 do
-- Hah, the inversion of ordering for scores and members in ZSET
-- reading vs. writing bites us in the butt.
chunk[i], chunk[i+1] = chunk[i+1], chunk[i]
end'ZADD', unpack(chunk))
local ret ='ZRANGE', dest, 0, -1, withscores)'DEL', dest)
return ret
