Apache Zookeeper + Apache Kafka start / restart script

During my work on Karafka framework I have to start/stop/restart Apache Kafka and Zookeeper quite often. Here’s a short script that will pull the most recent version of Kafka and Zookeeper, will run them and print their IPs.

Note, that it will also stop Kafka and Zookeeper if they were running.
