With Docker

Build & Run

Once you installed the prerequisites and cloned the repository, run the following steps in your project directory:

Step 1 : Build

NOTE: If you are an macOS M1 User then please keep in mind below things

Make sure you have ARM supported java installed

Skip the maven tests as they might not be successful

  • Build a docker image with the app

./mvnw clean install -Pprod
  • if you need to build the frontend kafka-ui-react-app, go here

    • kafka-ui-react-app-build-documentation

  • In case you want to build kafka-ui-api by skipping the tests

./mvnw clean install -Dmaven.test.skip=true -Pprod
  • To build only the kafka-ui-api you can use this command:

./mvnw -f kafka-ui-api/pom.xml clean install -Pprod -DskipUIBuild=true

If this step is successful, it should create a docker image named provectuslabs/kafka-ui with latest tag on your local machine except macOS M1.

Step 2 : Run

Using Docker Compose

NOTE: If you are an macOS M1 User then you can use arm64 supported docker compose script ./documentation/compose/kafka-ui-arm64.yaml

  • Start the kafka-ui app using docker image built in step 1 along with Kafka clusters:

docker-compose -f ./documentation/compose/kafka-ui.yaml up -d

Using Spring Boot Run

  • If you want to start only kafka clusters (to run the kafka-ui app via spring-boot:run):

docker-compose -f ./documentation/compose/kafka-clusters-only.yaml up -d
  • Then start the app.

./mvnw spring-boot:run -Pprod

# or

./mvnw spring-boot:run -Pprod -Dspring.config.location=file:///path/to/conf.yaml

Running in kubernetes

  • Using Helm Charts

helm repo add kafka-ui https://provectus.github.io/kafka-ui
helm install kafka-ui kafka-ui/kafka-ui

To read more please follow to chart documentation.

Step 3 : Access Kafka-UI

  • To see the kafka-ui app running, navigate to http://localhost:8080.
