Full Description

Kafka in Docker

This repository provides everything you need to run Kafka in Docker.

Updated for Kafka


The main hurdle of running Kafka in Docker is that it depends on Zookeeper.
Compared to other Kafka docker images, this one runs both Zookeeper and Kafka
in the same container. This means:

  • No dependency on an external Zookeeper host, or linking to another container.
  • Zookeeper and Kafka are configured to work together out of the box.


Start the container:

docker run -p 2181:2181 -p 9092:9092 --env ADVERTISED_HOST=localhost --env ADVERTISED_PORT=9092 mkasberg/kafka:

Write a test message to kafka: --broker-list localhost:9092 --topic test

Read the test message: --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --from-beginning --topic test

In the box

  • mkasberg/kafka

    The docker image with both Kafka and Zookeeper. Built from the kafka
