Subject recommendation on kafka go client : sarama or confluent-kafka-go
Date Fri, 07 Apr 2017 00:02:48 GMT
Hi all,

We need to write  a service in Go to consume from kafka. There are two
popular kafka clients:  sarama <https://github.com/Shopify/sarama> and
confluent-kafka-go <https://github.com/confluentinc/confluent-kafka-go>.
Sarama client is written purely in Go. This allow it to show the full Go
stacktrace in case of an exception. That can be helpful for debugging.
Confluent-kafka-go wraps around librdkafka. That potentially can provide
better performance. Any suggestions on choosing between these two?
