To get Redis running in Docker is quite easy. The windows installation follows but if you on the Linux platform, first you will need to install docker. Docker has very good documentation on how to get docker running on Linux. I personally use Ubuntu so would suggest you to give Ubuntu a try for Docker.

Once docker is installed, all it takes from command prompt is to run

Then to run redis

If you are on the windows 10 installing Docker is also a breeze platform, and to install Redis you can use Kitematic.

The steps to install Redis with Kitematic.

  1. Launch Kitematic


  2. Search for Redis
  3. Install the official release of redis by clicking on Create


  4. Done


Now one can connect to localhost port 32768 with Redis. Docker makes it super easy to get Redis up and running.
