Kafka Docker

Cloned from wurstmeister/kafka
See the source at:


Spins up a Docker Swarm with a Docker Stack, including containers for Kafka, Zookeeper, Kafka Manager, MongoDB, Mongo Express, Zuul, Eureka Server, and the three Storefront microservices. For use with my two-part post, Using Eventual Consistency
and Spring for Kafka to Manage a Distributed Data Model. Note there is no persistent storage backing Kafka or MongoDB.

In the Docker Compose file, you can chose uncomment the Kafka and MongoDB ports to expose them for local development.


Build Docker Swarm and deploy Docker Stack.

docker swarm init
sh ./

Delete (3) MongoDB databases, (3) Kafka topics, create sample data by hitting Zuul API Gateway endpoints, and return MongoDB documents as verification.

python3 ./
