Strimzi Kafka CLI

Strimzi Kafka CLI is a CLI that helps traditional Apache Kafka users -mostly administrators- to easily adapt Strimzi, a Kubernetes operator for Apache Kafka.

Intention here is to ramp up Strimzi usage by creating a similar CLI experience with traditional Apache Kafka binaries. For example:

Native Command Strimzi CLI Command
$KAFKA_HOME/bin/ kfk topics
$KAFKA_HOME/bin/ kfk configs
$KAFKA_HOME/bin/ kfk console-consumer
... ...

kfk command stands for the usual kafka-* prefix of the Apache Kafka runnable files which are located in bin directory. There are options provided like topics, console-consumer, etc. which also mostly stand for the rest of the runnable file names like

However, because of the nature of Strimzi and its capabilities, there are also unusual options like clusters which is used for cluster configuration or users which is used for user management and configuration.

Following is the high-level output of the Strimzi Kafka CLI:

Usage: kfk [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...
