A Python logging handler using MQTT protocol

Project description

A Python logging handler using MQTT protocol.

Installation

pip install mqtthandler

Example usage

import mqtthandler
import logging
import time

mqtthdlr = mqtthandler.MQTTHandler('server.mqtt.com', 'topic/test')
mqtthdlr.setLevel(logging.INFO)

logger = logging.getLogger()
logger.addHandler(mqtthdlr)
logger.setLevel(logging.INFO)

logging.info('test')  # Automatically connecting to the MQTT broker if not connected (equal to loop_start()) and sending log message to MQTT broker
logging.info('test 2')

# Wait for log being sent to the MQTT broker
while True:
  time.sleep(1)

# You will only see
#   test 2
# on the broker if QoS = 0.

MQTTHandler will not wait for connected, you have to do it yourself. E.g.

mqtthdlr.loop_start()   # Manually connect to the MQTT server
import time; time.sleep(3)   # A dirty way to wait for MQTT connected
logging.info('test')  # send log message to MQTT broker

MQTTHandler will create a thread to maintain the connection (automatically reconnecting if disconnected) itself. This will make your program never exit. You have to terminate MQTTHandler yourself to stop the MQTTHandler thread.

mqtthdlr.loop_stop()  # Stop MQTT thread
