SMDK - Generate a SmartModule

SMDK generate helps developers build a sample SmartModule project by answering a few simple questions


This section assumes that SMDK is installed


Generate - Operation

SMDK generate commands runs a wizard and builds a sample project in a subdirectory

The generator created Rust project ready to compile:

This is a simple SmartModule filter matching for all data records that contains letter a:

use fluvio_smartmodule::{smartmodule, Result, Record};

pub fn filter(record: &Record) -> Result<bool> {
    let string = std::str::from_utf8(record.value.as_ref())?;

Note the SmartModule.toml file. This file contains SmartModule parameters required to load the file in the Cluster and publish it to SmartModule Hub.

$ cat SmartModule.toml
name = "my-filter"
group = "aj"
version = "0.1.0"
apiVersion = "0.1.0"
description = ""
license = "Apache-2.0"

name = "input"
description = "input description"


  • package is used to build the SmartModule FQDN aj/my-filter@0.1.0, and the description to publish to SmartModule Hub. The group name is equivalent to the package owner in the Hub.
  • params defines the command line parameters by the SmartModule internal logic.

The project is ready to build and test. Checkout the next section for instructions.



  1. Install SMDK
  2. Generate a SmartModule
  3. Build and Test
  4. Load to your Cluster
  5. Publish to SmartModule Hub
