Docker Compose quickstart

The following steps will start a 3-node Kafka cluster on your machine with Docker Compose and connects the latest version of Kpow to that Kafka cluster with a 30-day trial licence that you have obtained from our site.



Clone our kpow-local repository which contains a functional docker-compose.yml file containing a 3-node Kafka cluster.

$ git clone https://github.com/factorhouse/kpow-local.git

$ cd kpow-local

$ vim local.env # Add your LICENSE details from Kpow Trial email here

$ docker-compose up


  • Kpow's web UI is accessible on http://localhost:3000
  • The Kafka brokers are accessible with bootstrap URL,, if you want to configure other services.
