Setting up Kafka
Before we combine Kafka with Ruby, it would be good to have a workable local Kafka process. The easiest way to do that is by using our
docker-compose.yml present in Karafka:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:karafka/karafka.git cd karafka docker-compose up
To check that it works, you can just telnet to it:
telnet 127.0.0.1 9092 Trying 127.0.0.1... Connected to 127.0.0.1. Escape character is '^]'.
