It was about time I got to grips with Redis, so I put together a quick plugin for Known to add Redis support.

It provides a PersistentCache derived cache, suitable for using with Known, and also
makes it easier for you to use Redis from your code.


Drop the Redis folder into the IndoPlugins folder of your idno installation.

Due to the way Known loads classes, you don’t need to activate the plugin in order to be able to use the class.

If you want to use the Cache system wide, modify your config.ini as follows:

Note, you need to use at least Known build 20180630.

Have fun!

This is just a quick one, someone in the Known IRC channel recently mentioned that it’d be really nice to get the version of Font Awesome Known uses upgraded to the latest version (version 5 at time of writing).

This seemed like it was probably a good idea, not least because we could take advantage of a few new branding logos for people’s profiles.

I had a bit of time between gigs, so I pushed a quick patch.


It has now been almost a year since the last official release binary for Known.

While development has been ongoing, and updates largely incremental via Github, I know that this has caused some confusion for folk. So, while we wait for the official release from the core project devs, I’ve started putting out some unofficial releases.

These releases are pretty much just a periodic snapshot of what’s on github, but my hope is that these packages will make it easier for folk who are uncomfortable tracking github master.
