sc <- spark_connect(master = "local", version = "2.3", packages = "kafka")

read_options <- list(kafka.bootstrap.servers = "localhost:9092", subscribe = "topic1")
write_options <- list(kafka.bootstrap.servers = "localhost:9092", topic = "topic2")

stream <- stream_read_kafka(sc, options = read_options) %>%
  stream_write_kafka(options = write_options)
