    CLI and Lambda functions to manage Kafka Topics, ACLs and Schemas in AWS CFN

    With regards to authorization (what a given client can/can't do), Apache Kafka supports setting ACLs to grant selective permissions for each user. You have to use tools such as JulieOps or CFN Kafka Admin, or just the Kafka CLI/Admin API, to set these permissions.

  • python-fake-data-producer-for-apache-kafka

    The Python fake data producer for Apache Kafka® is a complete demo app allowing you to quickly produce JSON fake streaming datasets and push it to an Apache Kafka topic.

    At times, I will also mention Aiven, but my credits ran out before I could explore all its features of it, so I recommend you explore that option yourselves too.
