A Python logging handler using MQTT protocol

Project description

A Python logging handler using MQTT protocol.


pip install mqtthandler

Example usage

import mqtthandler
import logging
import time

mqtthdlr = mqtthandler.MQTTHandler('', 'topic/test')

logger = logging.getLogger()
logger.setLevel(logging.INFO)'test')  # Automatically connecting to the MQTT broker if not connected (equal to loop_start()) and sending log message to MQTT broker'test 2')

# Wait for log being sent to the MQTT broker
while True:

# 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'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




MQTTHandler(host, topic, port=1883, keepalive=60, bind_address='', client_id='', clean_session=True, userdata=None, protocol=mqttc.MQTTv311, qos=0, retain=False)
