Kafka node in node-red

I'm asked to make a dashboard using node-red where the input is a kafka producer that provides the data thats is gonna be shown on the dashboard on graphs so everytime the data in the graphs changes based on the data provided by he kafka producer.By the data i mean temperature, the level of rain, etc. What ive tried so far is pretty basic and not automatic since i've used a slider that controls the graphs. I'm new to both node-red and kafka and since there are no tutorials available i'm stuck and i cant move on to the next stepq of the project. Any help about how to work with kafka producers and consumers in node-red would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance

Could this custom node help you https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-kafka-manager? There were other options also if it doesn't work, such as https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-kafka-node-latest.

The first one seemed to have most installs.

thank you for your help although i've already checked those two links i'll just retake a look cause there aren't much tutorials out there

Can't help you further, I've never used Kafka myself. :neutral_face: Good luck!
