Kafka Client library for .NET Core

Library Version: v1.0.0


Install-Package KafkaClient.NET


KafkaClient.NET is a simple library to Produce and Consume easily in .NET Core applications. It is a wrapper on official Confluent.Kafka client library. It supports simple objects and Protocolbuffer objects.

Setup DI

var serviceProvider = new ServiceCollection()
        .AddLogging(loggingBuilder =>
        .AddKafka(options =>
            options.BootstrapServers = ""; // replace with yours

Get Kafka Service instance

var kafka = serviceProvider.GetRequiredService<IKafkaService>();

Simple Producer Example

Create producer object

var p1 = kafka.CreateProducer<Null, string>(options =>
      options.TopicName = "test-topic-01";

Produce message

var dr = p1.ProduceAsync(new Message<Null, string> { Value = "test" }).Result;
Console.WriteLine($"Delivered '{dr.Value}' to '{dr.TopicPartitionOffset}'");

Simple Consumer Example

Create consumer object

var c1 = kafka.CreateConsumer<Null, string>(options =>
      options.TopicName = "test-topic-02";
      options.GroupId = "1";
      options.ThreadCount = 8;

Producer Example with protobuf

Create producer object

var p2 = kafka.CreateProducerProtobuf<string, User>(options =>
      options.TopicName = "test-topic-03";
      options.SchemaRegistryUrl = ""; // replace with yours

Produce message

User user = new User { Name = "Imran Khan", FavoriteColor = "green", FavoriteNumber = 100 };
var dr = p2.ProduceAsync(new Message<string, User> { Key = user.Name, Value = user }).Result;
Console.WriteLine($"Delivered '{dr.Value}' to '{dr.TopicPartitionOffset}'");

Consumer Example with protobuf

Create consumer object

var c2 = kafka.CreateConsumerProtobuf<string, User>(options =>
    options.TopicName = "test-topic-03";
    options.GroupId = "30";
    options.ThreadCount = 1;
    options.AutoOffsetReset = AutoOffsetReset.Earliest;
