Using Kafka in Node.js has previously meant relying on community-contributed bindings to librdkafka, which required you to spend more of your time debugging failed builds than working on your application. With the original authors moving away from supporting the bindings, and the community only partially picking up the slack, using Kafka on NodeJS was a painful proposition.
Tommy has also used KafkaJS to build several Kafka-powered services at Klarna, as well as worked on supporting libraries such as integrations with Confluent Schema Registry and Zstandard compression.
