asyncio client for Kafka


AIOKafkaProducer is a high-level, asynchronous message producer.

Example of AIOKafkaProducer usage:

from aiokafka import AIOKafkaProducer
import asyncio

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

async def send_one():
    producer = AIOKafkaProducer(
        loop=loop, bootstrap_servers='localhost:9092')
    # Get cluster layout and initial topic/partition leadership information
    await producer.start()
        # Produce message
        await producer.send_and_wait("my_topic", b"Super message")
        # Wait for all pending messages to be delivered or expire.
        await producer.stop()



AIOKafkaConsumer is a high-level, asynchronous message consumer. It interacts with the assigned Kafka Group Coordinator node to allow multiple consumers to load balance consumption of topics (requires kafka >=

Example of AIOKafkaConsumer usage:

from aiokafka import AIOKafkaConsumer
import asyncio

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

async def consume():
    consumer = AIOKafkaConsumer(
        'my_topic', 'my_other_topic',
        loop=loop, bootstrap_servers='localhost:9092',
    # Get cluster layout and join group `my-group`
    await consumer.start()
        # Consume messages
        async for msg in consumer:
            print("consumed: ", msg.topic, msg.partition, msg.offset,
                  msg.key, msg.value, msg.timestamp)
        # Will leave consumer group; perform autocommit if enabled.
        await consumer.stop()


Running tests

Docker is required to run tests. See for installation notes. Also note, that lz4 compression libraries for python will require python-dev package, or python source header files for compilation on Linux. NOTE: You will also need a valid java installation. It's required for the keytool utility, used to generate ssh keys for some tests.

Setting up tests requirements (assuming you're within virtualenv on ubuntu 14.04+):

sudo apt-get install -y libsnappy-dev
make setup

Running tests with coverage:

make cov

To run tests with a specific version of Kafka (default one is 1.0.2) use KAFKA_VERSION variable:


Test running cheatsheat:

  • make test FLAGS="-l -x --ff" - run until 1 failure, rerun failed tests fitst. Great for cleaning up a lot of errors, say after a big refactor.
  • make test FLAGS="-k consumer" - run only the consumer tests.
  • make test FLAGS="-m 'not ssl'" - run tests excluding ssl.
  • make test FLAGS="--no-pull" - do not try to pull new docker image before test run.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
