Pulsar Node.js client library

The Pulsar Node.js client can be used to create Pulsar producers and consumers in Node.js.


Pulsar Node.js client library is based on the C++ client library. Follow the instructions for C++ library for installing the binaries through RPM, Deb or Homebrew packages.

(Note: you will need to install not only the pulsar-client library but also the pulsar-client-dev library)

Also, this library works only in Node.js 10.x or later because it uses the node-addon-api module to wrap the C++ library.


Compatibility between each version of the Node.js client and the C++ client is as follows:
