About the Kafka to RethinkDB connector

License Apache 2.0

The Rethink Sink Connector allows you to write events from Kafka to RethinkDb. The connector takes the value from the Kafka Connect SinkRecords and inserts a new entry to RethinkDb. This is an open-source project and so isn't available with Lenses support SLAs.

Why use Lenses.io to read data from Kafka to RethinkDB?

This connector saves you from learning terminal commands and endless back-and-forths connecting Kafka to RethinkDB by managing the RethinkDB stream reactor connector (and all your other connectors on your Kafka Connect Cluster) through Lenses.io. This lets you freely monitor, process and deploy data with the following features:

  • Error handling
  • Fine-grained permissions
  • Data observability
