Project description

play mqtt Documentation Status

pytest-play support for MQTT support.

Thanks to play_mqtt you can test the integration between a mocked IoT device that sends commands on MQTT and a reactive web application with UI checks.

You can also build a simulator that generates messages for you.

This project defines a new pytest-play command:

- provider: mqtt
  type: publish
  host: "$mqtt_host"
  port: $mqtt_port
  endpoint: "$mqtt_endpoint"
  payload: '{
    "endpoint": "$mqtt_endpoint",
    "payload": {
      "obj_id_L": [0],
      "bin_value": [77251432],
      "measure_id": [100],
      "measureType": ["float"],
      "start_time": 1514911926114
    "host": "$mqtt_host",
    "provider": "mqtt",
    "type": "publish",
    "port": "$mqtt_port"}'
