Make node-rdkafka an optional dependency of EventGate
Open, HighPublic


Producing to Kafka is just one way to use EventGate. It's nice to have it as the default, except that building the librdkafka binary is not very lightway, nor does it always work so smoothly on all OS-es (e.g. MacOS). By making node-rdkafka an optional dependency (and guarding against it being missing), we should be able to more easily create development eventgate instances without needing to build librdkafka.

Ok, I did some work today to factory out our async Kafka factory wrapper from eventgate into its own library. This makes it easier to make it an optional dependency of both eventgate and eventgate-wikimedia. This currently includes 4 changes, including one to make it all work in EventLogging as a devserver, for the parent task T259202.

These all need review, gonna bug @Milimetric and/or @Pchelolo for the first 3, and @Mholloway for the last EventLogging one.

  1. New node-rdkafka-factory repo and module:
  2. Make eventgate use node-rdkafka-factory:
  3. Make eventgate-wikimedia use node-rdkafka-factory:
  4. Make EventLogging use eventgate-wikimedia without node-rdkafka:

These all need to be merged and published in order.
