Kafka in Docker in Vagrant
I'm using this
Vagrantfile to run Kafka on a Windows 8.1 laptop for development purposes.
It runs the ultra-lightweight boot2docker Linux, then uses Vagrant's Docker provisioning support to spin up ZooKeeper and Kafka.
The fun bits to work out were:
- You need to forward the ports on both Vagrant (lines 13 & 14) and Docker (the
-pflag), so you can access the instance from Windows using
