Creating Client Apps to Interact with KeyDB

I have developed some redis modules that require sending data buffers with the redis protocol to the redis interface. As advertised, Keydb seems to function fine as a drop-in replacement to redis and loads my modules just fine. However, the client apps developed with libhiredis get disconnected when trying to submit commands. It says in the documetnation that keydb still adheres to the redis protocol. What am I missing here? Is there some other library I need to develop the client apps with? Or is there some adjustment I need to make? The only documentation I can see discusses the keydb command line tool, but what about making client apps. Thank you.
