Subject Pet Project - Web based consumer for Kafka
Date Mon, 08 Jan 2018 13:09:49 GMT
Hello all!

I've been working on a pet project over the last couple of months building
out a web based interface for consuming from Kafka called Kafka Web View

I often found myself going to kafka-console-consumer to manually inspect or
find data in Kafka.  Between wanting to filter for specific records, using
custom deserializers, and seeking to specific offsets or timestamps, the
command line tool starts to become a bit unwieldy to use.  On top of that
in production environments access to consoles or the clusters are typically

This project allows you to define "Views" over Kafka topics which include
configuring key and value deserializers as well as server side filtering
logic.  Using a view you can then "page" through records starting from the
head or tail of the topic, seek to specific offsets or timestamps, and
enable customizable filters.  The tool also allows you to stream a
view/records to your browser using web sockets.

Hoping someone else out there will find it useful as well, and definitely
open to suggestions or contributions.
