Website, Docs & Distribution Updates

KeyDB has upgraded its main website, migrated docs to a newer version, and has changed download distribution methods to provide more options. This comes as KeyDB is now separated into three product offerings: ‘KeyDB Open Source’, ‘KeyDB Cloud’, and ‘KeyDB Enterprise’. Please see below a high level summary of the major changes.

Distribution:

  • KeyDB Ubuntu and Debian packages will now all be served through a common PPA repository. This brings support to both buster and stretch packages in addition to focal, bionic and xenial packages. A thanks to one of our users, Stephan Schlesinger for the suggestion to use Freight which is an open source project for distribution
  • KeyDB Enterprise and KeyDB Open Source packages are now separated into separate distribution trees, with KeyDB-Pro binaries removed from the open source packaging.
  • Existing PPA repositories and download trees remain in tact but will not be updated. Please see documentation on rpm/deb/ppa repos to update installation paths

Docs:

  • KeyDB Docs which includes all documentation and blogs has been migrated to the Docusaurus v2 framework which offers a lot of new functionality.
  • Docs now has ‘dark mode’
  • A new header/footer with additional links/sublinks for easier navigation
  • The sidebar comes pre-collapsed, and now has nested sidebar categories allowing for better organization and workflow. Docs has been re-categorized to separate Enterprise, Open Source, and Cloud offerings.
  • KeyDB-Pro has been removed from our documentation and has been rebranded as KeyDB Enterprise to reflect the offering moving forwards.

Website:

  • The website has a new look and feel. It now incorporates sections for our different product offerings as well as a better structure and flow.
  • The site is separated into categories for open source, cloud, and enterprise to clearly differentiate the offerings.
