Redis Pub/Sub
Redis Pub/Sub implements the messaging system where the publishers sends the messages while the subscribers receive them.
Aside from data storage, Redis can be used as a Publisher/Subscriber platform. In this pattern, publishers can issue messages to any number of subscribers on a channel. These messages are fire-and-forget, in that if a message is published and no subscribers exists, the message evaporates and cannot be recovered.

Installation

Before the usage remember to install required packages.
$ yarn add redis
