creates a new key that can be used to set locks, expects to be called with a redis client. Options can be an object with following properties

  • ttl: time before the lock automatically expires, default: 10000ms

key.lock(key, [ttl])

lock a key, any future call to .lock with the same value will fail with a promise.LockError. The lock will expire after ttl or the default time when unspecified. returns a Lock instance.

Lock.unlock()

Release this lock so it can be obtained by another client. Fails with a promise.LockError if the lock is expired.
