Real-Time Data Processing Platform

Memphis UI

Playground - Sandbox - Docs - Twitter - YouTube

Discord Code Of Conduct GitHub release (latest by date)

Memphis{dev} is an open-source real-time data processing platform
that provides end-to-end support for in-app streaming use cases using Memphis distributed message broker.
Memphis' platform requires zero ops, enables rapid development, extreme cost reduction,
eliminates coding barriers, and saves a great amount of dev time for data-oriented developers and data engineers.

⭐️ Why

Working with data streaming is HARD.

As a developer, you need to build a dedicated pipeline for each data source,
work with schemas, formats, serializations, analyze each source individually,
enrich the data with other sources, constantly change APIs, and scale for better performance 🥵.
Besides that, it constantly crashes and requires adaptation to different rate limits.
It takes time and resources that you probably don't have.

Message broker acts as the middleman and supports streaming architecture,
but then you encounter Apache Kafka and its documentation and run back to the monolith and batch jobs.
Give memphis{dev} a spin before.

👉 Use-cases

  • Async task management
  • Real-time streaming pipelines
  • Data ingestion
  • Cloud Messaging
    • Services (microservices, service mesh)
    • Event/Data Streaming (observability, analytics, ML/AI)
  • Queuing
  • N:N communication patterns




  • 🚀 Fully optimized message broker in under 3 minutes
  • 💻 Easy-to-use UI, CLI, and SDKs
  • 📺 Data-level observability
  • ☠️ Dead-Letter Queue with automatic message retransmit
  • SDKs: Node.JS, Go, Python, Typescript, NestJS
  • 🐳 Runs on your Docker or Kubernetes
  • 👨‍💻 Community driven

High-Level Architecture

Local access

Via Kubernetes

To access Memphis UI from localhost, run the below commands:

kubectl port-forward service/memphis-ui 9000:80 --namespace memphis > /dev/null &

To access Memphis using CLI or SDK from localhost, run the below commands:

kubectl port-forward service/memphis-cluster 6666:6666 5555:5555 --namespace memphis > /dev/null &

Dashboard: http://localhost:9000
Memphis broker: http://localhost:6666

For Production Environments Please expose the UI, Cluster, and Control-plane via k8s ingress / load balancer / nodeport

Via Docker

UI - http://localhost:9000
Broker - http://localhost:6666


Memphis{dev} is currently in Beta version. This means that we are still working on essential features like real-time messages tracing, schema registry and inline processing as well as making more SDKs and supporting materials.

How does it affect you? Well... mostly it doesn't.
(a) The core of memphis broker is highly stable
(b) We learn and fix fast

But we need your love, and any help we can get by stars, PR, feedback, issues, and enhancments.
