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!
