Hello friends! In this post, I will be discussing about how we can create Redis Pool in Golang using redigo module. First of all, create a directory redis-pool and open it your favourite browser. I am using vs code. Now run below command to initialise the module:

go mod init redis-pool

Now, create a file main.go.

The whole code will look like below:

package main

import (

var redisPool *redis.Pool

func init() {
redisPool = &redis.Pool{
Dial: func() (redis.Conn, error) {
conn, err := redis.Dial("tcp", "localhost:6379")
if err != nil {
log.Fatal("Oops some error: ", err.Error())

return conn, err

MaxIdle: 10,
MaxActive: 10,

func setString(key, value string) {
con := redisPool.Get()
defer con.Close()

result, err := con.Do("SET", key, value)
if err != nil {
log.Fatal("Some error: ", err.Error())


func main() {
setString("Name", "Debug Boss")
