Eclipse Mosquitto - An open source MQTT broker
Mosquitto is an open source implementation of a server for version 5.0, 3.1.1, and 3.1 of the MQTT protocol. It also includes a C and C++ client library, and the
mosquitto_subutilities for publishing and subscribing.
See the following links for more information on MQTT:
Mosquitto project information is available at the following locations:
There is also a public test server available at https://test.mosquitto.org/
See https://mosquitto.org/download/ for details on installing binaries for various platforms.
If you have installed a binary package the broker should have been started automatically. If not, it can be started with a basic configuration:
mosquitto_subto subscribe to a topic:
mosquitto_sub -t 'test/topic' -v
And to publish a message:
mosquitto_pub -t 'test/topic' -m 'hello world'
Documentation for the broker, clients and client library API can be found in the man pages, which are available online at https://mosquitto.org/man/. There are also pages with an introduction to the features of MQTT, the
mosquitto_passwdutility for dealing with username/passwords, and a description of the configuration file options available for the broker.
Detailed client library API documentation can be found at https://mosquitto.org/api/
