One common use case for getting the current database in Node Redis is when you're running multiple databases and want to confirm that your operations are being performed on the correct one.
Redis does not provide a direct command to get the current database. However, you can keep track of the database index yourself while using
Here is an example using Node.js:
In this code, we first import the
redis module and create a new client. We then define a variable
dbIndex to keep track of the current database. After calling the
select method to switch databases, we update our
dbIndex variable accordingly.
It's important to properly manage your databases and always make sure you're working with the correct one. To avoid confusion, it's recommended to maintain the current database index within your application logic as demonstrated in the code example above.
A common mistake is forgetting to update your local database index after calling the
SELECT command. Always remember to do this to ensure that your application's idea of the 'current' database matches Redis's.
