    Fs2 is more mature than Zio streams and has a seemingly well-maintained connector: https://github.com/fd4s/fs2-kafka

    If you only need statless transformations, I guess that fs2, zio-streams, and alpakka kafka are good solutions, and it's just a matter of personal preference. But zio and fs2 are definitely lightwheight when you compare it with akka streams. I see a lot of comments against ZIO streams that are not supported by the facts, since https://github.com/zio/zio-kafka has more contributors than https://github.com/fd4s/fs2-kafka. Here are some materials if you want to learn more about zio-kafka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GECv1ONieLw https://scalac.io/blog/streaming-microservices-with-zio-and-kafka/
