I came across this gist through Google. So, today after running brew install redis I saw the message:

To have launchd start redis now and restart at login:
  brew services start redis
Or, if you don't want/need a background service you can just run:
  redis-server /usr/local/etc/redis.conf

Instead of following this gist's instructions, I did that. I'm thinking brew services is the more modern way to do this...?
