Apache Nifi comes to mind if you are looking for a simple, but robust, tool to process data from various sources. In short, Apache NiFi is a tool to process and distribute data. Its intuitive UI supports routing definitions, a variety of connectors (in/out), and many built-in processors. All these features combined together make it a suitable optional platform for our use case.

https://hub.docker.com/r/apache/nifi/ https://hub.docker.com/r/apache/nifi-registry/

Step -1: Pull docker Image

docker pull apache/nifi:latest

Step 2: Create a container

Name my container (I named it devnifi) Controlling the port, and mapped to 8443 Being able to see the loading and standard output of Nifi Create a shared volume between my host (shared-directory) and the container (ls-target)

docker run --name devnifi -p 8443:8443 -e NIFI_WEB_HTTPS_PORT='8443' -d apache/nifi:latest

Step 3: Verify using logs

docker logs -f devnifi

Step 4: Pull Nifi registry and create a container

docker pull apache/nifi-registry

then run the registry which manages version control for Nifi flow.

docker run --name nifi-registry -p 18080:18080 -d apache/nifi-registry

Step 5: Validation

visit https://localhost:8443/nifi http://localhost:18080/nifi-registry

docker inspect devnifi --format='{{.NetworkSettings.Networks.bridge.Gateway}}'


This is just a three-step process to run any container, pull the image, run the container, and verify.
