The use case is a streaming ETL deployment on live edits to real Wikipedia pages. Wikimedia Foundation has IRC channels that publish edits happening to real wiki pages (e.g. #en.wikipedia, #en.wiktionary) in real time. Using Kafka Connect, a Kafka source connector kafka-connect-irc streams raw messages from these IRC channels, and a custom Kafka Connect transform kafka-connect-transform-wikiedit transforms these messages and then the messages are written to a Kafka cluster. This demo uses KSQL for data enrichment, or you can optionally develop and run your own Kafka Streams application. Then a Kafka sink connector kafka-connect-elasticsearch streams the data out of Kafka, applying another custom Kafka Connect transform called NullFilter. The data is materialized into Elasticsearch for analysis by Kibana.
