[FLaNK] Smart Weather Websocket Application - Kafka Consumer

 [FLaNK] Smart Weather Websocket Application - Kafka Consumer Part 2 of 2 This is based on Koji Kawamura's excellent GIST: As part of my Smart Weather Application, I wanted to display weather information as it arrives in a webpage using web sockets.   Koji has an excellent NiFi flow that does it.   I tweaked it and add some things since I am not using Zeppelin.   I am hosting my webpage with NiFi as well. We simply supply a webpage that makes a websocket connection to NiFi and NiFi keeps a cache in HBase to know what the client is doing.  This cache is updated by consuming from Kafka.   We can then feed events as they happen to the page. Here is the JavaScript for the web page interface to websockets: <script> function sendMessage(type, payload) { websocket.send(makeMessage(type, payload)); } function makeMessage(type, payload
