hw-kafka-client

Kafka bindings for Haskell https://github.com/haskell-works/hw-kafka-client

Latest on Hackage:2.1.3

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

CircleCI

Kafka bindings for Haskell backed by the librdkafka C module.

Credits

This project is inspired by Haskakafka which unfortunately doesn't seem to be actively maintained.

Ecosystem

HaskellWorks Kafka ecosystem is described here: https://github.com/haskell-works/hw-kafka

Consumer

High level consumers are supported by librdkafka starting from version 0.9. High-level consumers provide an abstraction for consuming messages from multiple partitions and topics. They are also address scalability (up to a number of partitions) by providing automatic rebalancing functionality. When a new consumer joins a consumer group the set of consumers attempt to "rebalance" the load to assign partitions to each consumer.

Example:

$ stack build --flag hw-kafka-client:examples

or

$ stack build --exec kafka-client-example --flag hw-kafka-client:examples

A working consumer example can be found here: ConsumerExample.hs
To run an example please compile with the examples flag.

import Data.Monoid ((<>))
import Kafka
import Kafka.Consumer

-- Global consumer properties
consumerProps :: ConsumerProperties
consumerProps = brokersList [BrokerAddress "localhost:9092"]
             <> groupId (ConsumerGroupId "consumer_example_group")
             <> noAutoCommit
             <> logLevel KafkaLogInfo

-- Subscription to topics
consumerSub :: Subscription
consumerSub = topics [TopicName "kafka-client-example-topic"]
           <> offsetReset Earliest

-- Running an example
runConsumerExample :: IO ()
runConsumerExample = do
    res <- runConsumer consumerProps consumerSub processMessages
    print res

-------------------------------------------------------------------
processMessages :: KafkaConsumer -> IO (Either KafkaError ())
processMessages kafka = do
    mapM_ (\_ -> do
                   msg1 <- pollMessage kafka (Timeout 1000)
                   putStrLn $ "Message: " <> show msg1
                   err <- commitAllOffsets OffsetCommit kafka
                   putStrLn $ "Offsets: " <> maybe "Committed." show err
          ) [0 .. 10]
    return $ Right ()

Producer

kafka-client producer supports sending messages to multiple topics. Target topic name is a part of each message that is to be sent by produceMessage.

A working producer example can be found here: ProducerExample.hs

Example

import Control.Monad (forM_)
import Kafka
import Kafka.Producer

-- Global producer properties
producerProps :: ProducerProperties
producerProps = brokersList [BrokerAddress "localhost:9092"]
             <> logLevel KafkaLogDebug

-- Topic to send messages to
targetTopic :: TopicName
targetTopic = TopicName "kafka-client-example-topic"

-- Run an example
runProducerExample :: IO ()
runProducerExample = do
    res <- runProducer producerProps sendMessages
    print res

sendMessages :: KafkaProducer -> IO (Either KafkaError ())
sendMessages prod = do
  err1 <- produceMessage prod (mkMessage Nothing (Just "test from producer") )
  forM_ err1 print

  err2 <- produceMessage prod (mkMessage (Just "key") (Just "test from producer (with key)"))
  forM_ err2 print

  return $ Right ()

mkMessage :: Maybe ByteString -> Maybe ByteString -> ProducerRecord
mkMessage k v = ProducerRecord
                  { prTopic = targetTopic
                  , prPartition = UnassignedPartition
                  , prKey = k
                  , prValue = v
                  }

Installation

Installing librdkafka

Although librdkafka is available on many platforms, most of the distribution packages are too old to support kafka-client. As such, we suggest you install from the source:

git clone https://github.com/edenhill/librdkafka
cd librdkafka
./configure
make && make install

Sometimes it is helpful to specify openssl includes explicitly:

LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include ./configure

Installing Kafka

The full Kafka guide is at http://kafka.apache.org/documentation.html#quickstart

Alternatively docker-compose can be used to run Kafka locally inside a Docker container. To run Kafka inside Docker:

$ docker-compose up
