Kafka in Docker
This repository provides everything you need to run Kafka (with a Zookeeper) in Docker environment. Image is based on the latest OpenJDK 8.
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
docker run -d -p 2181:2181 -p 9092:9092 --env ADVERTISED_HOST=$(docker-machine ip $(docker-machine active)) --env ADVERTISED_PORT=9092 --name kafka wlsc/kafka
