Installing Kafka on Mac

igreendataadmin

Installation:

http://kafka.apache.org/

To download Kafka, navigate to kafka.apache.org and click on Download button

Please select the version you want to download ( here I have selected version 2.8.0 ) and choose the Scala version as Scala 2.13 to download the tgz file : https://apache.mirror.digitalpacific.com.au/kafka/2.8.0/kafka_2.13-2.8.0.tgz

Copy the tar file to desired location and unzip it

Configuration

The directory structure of Kafka would look like below

Modify config/server.properties

Using nano editor : nano config/server.properties need to set below properties

Startup:

bin/kafka-server-start.sh config/server.properties

broker.id=0

listeners=PLAINTEXT://127.0.0.1:9092

zookeeper.connect=127.0.0.1:2181

Start the zookeeper by running the command

bin/zookeeper-server-start.sh config/zookeeper.properties

Now if the log looks good ( without error ) , we can able to create topic and list it out

Topic Creation

To create topic, please run the below command

bin/kafka-topics.sh — bootstrap-server 127.0.0.1:9092 — create — topic demo_topic

To view the list of topics, run below command

bin/kafka-topics.sh — bootstrap-server 127.0.0.1:9092 — list [ its actually double hypen list ]

Happy Learning !
