Build Status

DISCLAIMER: We encourage you to keep your topics dynamic and JSON only, when choosing to go the Node.js Kafka way. Therefore we are no longer adding features to this registry project. When you are looking for a typed (schema-requirement) approach we suggest using Confluent's schema-registry with AVRO.

  • in BETA 🌱
  • avro & json schema registry backed by Kafka 🐙
  • API similar to confluentinc's schema-registry
  • enhances the experience of node-kafka-streams
  • enables node-kafka-connect
  • might also be used in a Kafka unrelated field ⭐
  • ships with a neat RegistryClient
  • checkout API Quickstart
  • compatibility options are currently disabled
  • LivingAvroSchema and LivingJsonSchema allow for real-time schema updates in running services

What is a Schema Registry?

Schema Registry provides a serving layer for your metadata. It provides a RESTful interface for storing and retrieving Avro schemas. It stores a versioned history of all schemas, provides multiple compatibility settings and allows evolution of schemas according to the configured compatibility setting. It provides serializers that plug into Kafka clients that handle schema storage and retrieval for Kafka messages that are sent in the Avro format.

Code Wise (Dev)

npm install --save schema-registry
const {RegistryClient, Registry, LivingAvroSchema} = require("schema-registry");
const registryClient = new RegistryClient({port: 1337});
registryClient.getLatestSubjectSchema("test-subject").then(schema => {..});

Living Schemas

const {LivingAvroSchema} = require("schema-registry");
const livingSchema = new LivingAvroSchema("test", "latest", {port: 1337});
livingSchema.on("new-version", console.log);
livingSchema.fetch().then(_ => {
    const buffer = livingSchema.toBuffer(someObject);
    const equalToSomeObject = livingSchema.fromBuffer(buffer);
});

Run a Registry (Ops) (Quicksetup)

npm install -g schema-registry
# you will need zookeeper + kafka (checkout `/kafka-setup/start.sh`
# if you dont have them)
# node-schema-registry -h
node-schema-registry -p 1337 -z localhost:2181/ -t _node_schema -l info

Using the registry CLI Client

nsrc --host localhost -p 1337 -e getSchemaById -a e707463d-0c3d-4010-afed-0d53c77e3605 -v
