Getting Started

If you have npm installed, start using @openhps/mqtt with the following command.

npm install @openhps/mqtt --save

Usage

The MQTT module uses a broker for all communication. You can use the embedded MQTT server or use an external broker.

Embedded MQTT Server

ModelBuilder.create()
.addService(new MQTTServer({
port: 1443 // MQTT port
}))
.from(new MQTTSourceNode({
uid: "source"
}))
.to()
.build();

Client Example

ModelBuilder.create()
.addService(new MQTTClient({
url: "mqtt://localhost:1443",
}))
.from(/* ... */)
.to(new MQTTSinkNode({
uid: "source"
}))
.build();

External MQTT Server

You can set up multiple clients connecting to an external MQTT server. The API is exactly the same as the client example.
