In today’s digital age, leaderboards have become an integral part of many applications, providing a dynamic way to display user scores and rankings. To build gamification features for any application (i.e., games, educational platforms), leaderboards serve as a powerful tool to engage and motivate users. In this blog post, we’re going to delve into the process of building a practical and realistic leaderboard system.

Our journey will involve leveraging the capabilities of Dragonfly, a highly efficient drop-in replacement for Redis, known for its ultra-high throughput and multi-threaded shared-nothing architecture. Specifically, we’ll be utilizing two of Dragonfly’s data types: Sorted-Set and Hash. These data structures are perfect for handling real-time data and ranking systems, making them ideal for our leaderboards.
