I have been facing this issue since yesterday. Everything seems to be working but when I call the repository.createAndSave or repository.createEntity method, I get that TypeError: this.schema.generateId is not a function

Hello there
I'm a complete newbie in Redis and not quite sure how to get Realtime data from RedisJSON. I'm building something that requires realtime data and I'm not sure how to implement this on Redis. I don't know if Redis has built-in support for this or none, because if so, I think I need to implement the whole thing via WebSockets. I tried searching but I can't find something that helps. I'm just curious, how can I make RedisJSON to become realtime (like Firebase Firestore)?
EDIT:
After some research, I noticed that there's no in-built support for this by Redis (please tell me if I'm wrong) and you have to implement it yourself via WebSockets? Is that right?
If so, I think this further increases development time, so instead I'm thinking of using this dependency I found in npmjs: @space-kit/redis-realtime-node

Correct. Like nearly all databases, Redis does not have zero-trust capabilities like Firebase does. There needs to be a trusted service in between Redis and untrusted clients.

I think redis cloud is very slow or buggy because it don't work and my connection always got timeout, long promises were in pending state and got timeout, event my Redis-DB is used only 9%.

Is this happening to all??

How to benchmark RediSearch performance? I'm currently comparing the performance of RediSearch with Azure Cognitive Search, but I have no idea how to benchmark RediSearch (or any services in Redis stack)

Hey! I published an NPM package for templating & creating Redis keys. But it seems like The Redis Hackathon does not have a relevant category for it. Is it possible for me to join using my NPM package (which I created this month)?

See my introduction post on DEV for Create Redis Key:

Hi everyone, I have a personal project I've been working on throughout the pandemic. Does the submission need to be from scratch or can we we submit a pre-existing application?

🌚 Friends don't let friends browse without dark mode.

Sorry, it's true.
