Interact with Kafka, LinkedIn's disk based message queue.

You'll need the libgmp source to compile this package. Under Debian-based systems,

sudo aptitude install libgmp3-dev

On a Mac with Homebrew,

brew install gmp

1 Install kafka

npm install kafka

2 Start zookeeper, kafka server, and a consumer (see http://sna-projects.com/kafka/quickstart.php)

3 Publish and consume some messages!

var kafka = require('kafka')
new kafka.Consumer().connect().subscribeTopic('test').on('message', function(topicmessage) {
console.log("Consumed message:", message)
})
var producer = new kafka.Producer().connect().on('connect', function() {
producer.send("hey!")
producer.close()
})

kafka.Consumer

var consumer = new kafka.Consumer({
// these are the default values 
host:         'localhost',
port:          9092,
pollInterval:  2000,
maxSize:       1048576 // 1MB 
})
    consumer.on('message', function(topicmessage) { 
        console.log(message)
    })
consumer.connect(function() {
        consumer.subscribeTopic({name: 'test', partition: 0})
    })

kafka.Producer

var producer = new kafka.Producer({
// these are also the default values 
host:         'localhost',
port:         9092,
topic:        'test',
partition:    0
})
producer.connect(function() {
producer.send('message bytes')
})
