Prozess is a Kafka library for node.js

Kafka is a persistent, efficient, distributed publish/subscribe messaging system.

There are two low-level clients: The Producer and the Consumer:

Producer example:

var Producer = require('Prozess').Producer;

var producer = new Producer('social', {host : 'localhost'});
producer.connect();
console.log("producing for ", producer.topic);
producer.on('error', function(err){
  console.log("some general error occurred: ", err);  
});
producer.on('brokerReconnectError', function(err){
  console.log("could not reconnect: ", err);  
  console.log("will retry on next send()");  
});

setInterval(function(){
  var message = { "thisisa" :  "test " + new Date()};
  producer.send(JSON.stringify(message), function(err){
    if (err){
      console.log("send error: ", err);
    } else {
      console.log("message sent");
    }
  });
}, 1000);

Consumer example:

var Consumer = require('Prozess').Consumer;

var options = {host : 'localhost', topic : 'social', partition : 0, offset : 0};
var consumer = new Consumer(options);
consumer.connect(function(err){
  if (err) {  throw err; }
  console.log("connected!!");
  setInterval(function(){
    console.log("===================================================================");
    console.log(new Date());
    console.log("consuming: " + consumer.topic);
    consumer.consume(function(err, messages){
      console.log(err, messages);
    });
  }, 7000);
});

A Consumer can be constructed with the following options (default values as shown below):

var options = {
  topic: 'test',
  partition: 0,
  host: 'localhost',
  port: 9092,
  offset: null, // Number, String or BigNum
  maxMessageSize: Consumer.MAX_MESSAGE_SIZE,
  polling: Consumer.DEFAULT_POLLING_INTERVAL
};

Installation:

 npm install prozess

Checkout the code and run the tests:

 $ git clone https://github.com/cainus/Prozess.git
 $ cd Prozess ; make test-cov && open coverage.html
