Redis Response#

As of redis 6.0.0 clients can use the RESP3 protocol which provides support for a much larger set of types (which reduces the need for clients to “guess” what the type of a command’s response should be). coredis provides backward compatibility for RESP and the structure of responses from coredis is consistent between RESP (protocol_version=2) and RESP3 (protocol_version=3) protocols.

To fallback to RESP the protocol_version constructor parameter can be set to 2.

r = coredis.Redis(protocol_version=2)
