  • A Critical Detail about Kafka Partitioners
    1 project | | 17 Apr 2023
    But what about Kafka producer clients in other languages? The excellent librdkafka project is a C/C++ implementation of Kafka clients and is widely used for non-JVM Kafka applications. Additionally, Kafka clients in other languages (Python, C#) build on top of it. The default partitioner for librdkafka uses the CRC32 hash function to get the correct partition for a key.

    3 projects | | 14 Oct 2022
    If you're using Kafka in a Node.js app, it's likely that you'll need node-rdkafka. This is a library that wraps the librdkafka library and makes it available in Node.js. According to the project's README, "All the complexity of balancing writes across partitions and managing (possibly ever-changing) brokers should be encapsulated in the library."
