What would you like to do?
Brew install Redis on Mac

type below:

brew update
brew install redis

To have launchd start redis now and restart at login:

brew services start redis

to stop it, just run:

brew services stop redis

Or, if you don't want/need a background service you can just run:

redis-server /usr/local/etc/redis.conf

Test if Redis server is running.

redis-cli ping

If it replies “PONG”, then it’s good to go!

Location of Redis configuration file.

/usr/local/etc/redis.conf

Uninstall Redis and its files.

brew uninstall redis
rm ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.redis.plist

For myself for future reference, or anyone else interested :)

You can make redis run in the background and add helpful aliases to start/stop/test redis:

In your redis.conf, /usr/local/etc/redis.conf, set daemonize yes, and it will run in the background.

Then add the following aliases:

alias redis.start="redis-server /usr/local/etc/redis.conf"
alias redis.stop="pkill redis-server"
alias redis.test="redis-cli ping"

If you need to configure brew-driven redis, then configuration could be found here:

/opt/homebrew/etc/redis.conf

To restart redis after an upgrade:

  brew services restart redis

Or, if you don't want/need a background service you can just run:

  /usr/local/opt/redis/bin/redis-server /usr/local/etc/redis.conf
