Is there any way can connect Kafka as a data source to Redash?

Is there any way can connect Kafka as a data source to Redash? I’m logging peipleine metrics and want to get quick summaries

Most of the connectors for Redash are contributed by the open source community. It doesn’t look like there’s a connector for Kafka yet. But it seems pretty straightforward to connect to Kafka from Python so you might be able to write your own query runner.

I love the idea of having Kafka as a supported data source, looking around I found a product which appears to have written this connector (Visualize Kafka data with Redash in minutes | Alooma). However having it natively would be amazing!
