News - The Magic of MQTT
about a year ago
I use intensively MQTT in local network to control Arduinos and Raspberries in Escape Rooms (up to 20 IoT boards per room) and it's definitively to right choice.Starting 3 years ago with TCP streams, MQTT is much much better. I don't see any other protocol to compete out there.
My company will publish commercial software to control Escape Rooms and free open-source librairies code for Arduino with Bridge (YUN) and Python libraries (Pure Python, asyncio, Kivy and Pygame oriented libraries and PySide/PyQt5 libraries).
On Raspberries I use paho-mqtt python lib, on Arduinos I use PubSubClient and on Windows I use C++/Qt/QMqtt.
To help our project I've already published an MQTT observer (PyQt5) on Gitub:
MQTT protocol is light and efficient across local networks but can be used over TCP (and websockets) over wide networks (in such a case, security might be addressed properly).
Because MQTT is plain text (and can be used for huge binary files as well) it's a pleasure to work with and debug data exchanges)..
No public wish lists :(
