4. (Optional) Install Redis
Redis is an open source software which is used for advanced key-value cache and store. It is often referred to as a data structure server. If we running Redis server in our system, EtherCalc will prefer it over file-based storage to improve performance.
$ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rwky/redis $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install redis-server
To check status:
$ redis-cli ping
If a Redis service is running on the same host, EtherCalc will prefer it over file-based storage to improve performance.
