This week, we’ve got an online live demo coming up showing how to use Kafka to support gaming features like user bug exploits. We’ve also got a new step-by-step Amazon S3 connector YouTube video, as well as a summary of the CLI tools available with a Kafka download. In our terminal tips section today, you’ll follow a quickstart to learn how to produce events to Kafka. Enjoy!
Today we’ll learn how to produce events to a topic using an Apache Kafka quickstart with confluent-local. (Make sure you have docker running first with docker info). The first two steps are to install confluent-local and start the Kafka broker:
> brew install confluentinc/tap/cli > confluent local kafka start
Then, start the producer and enter some messages which will be your events (ctrl+C to send them):
> confluent local kafka topic produce quickstart this is the first event this is the second event
To learn how to consume these messages in your terminal, continue the tutorial on Confluent Developer.
