Generally, modules have their own documentation that explains how to use them. To start using most open source modules with open source Redis, follow these steps:
- Clone or download the source code from the module’s repository
- Follow the instructions in the repository for building the module (usually just running the make command)
- Load the module to the Redis server with the loadmodule configuration directive or the MODULE LOAD
- Use any Redis client to connect to the server and call the module’s commands
Modules that are included with Redis Enterpise only need to be activated for a database to be used. Refer to the Redis Enterprise documentation for more details.
