Learning

This project is a companion repository to the Apache Kafka Connect course on Udemy.

Kafka Connect Source GitHub

This connector allows you to get a stream of issues and pull requests from your GitHub repository, using the GitHub Api: https://developer.github.com/v3/issues/#list-issues-for-a-repository

Issues are pulled based on updated_at field, meaning any update to an issue or pull request will appear in the stream.

The connector writes to topic that is great candidate to demonstrate log compaction. It's also a fun way to automate your GitHub workflow.

It's finally aimed to be an educative example to demonstrate how to write a Source Connector a little less trivial than the FileStreamSourceConnector provided in Kafka.

Running in development

Note: Java 8 is required for this connector. Make sure config/worker.properties is configured to wherever your kafka cluster is

./build.sh
./run.sh 

The simplest way to run run.sh is to have docker installed. It will pull a Dockerfile and run the connector in standalone mode above it.

Deploying
