implementations of Kafka producers and consumers, which are optionally backed
by a C extension built on
librdkafka_, and runs under Python 2.7+, Python 3.4+,
.. _librdkafka: https://github.com/edenhill/librdkafka
PyKafka's primary goal is to provide a similar level of abstraction to the
JVM Kafka client_ using idioms familiar to Python programmers and exposing
the most Pythonic API possible.
