MQTT Keyword Library Robot Framework

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/randomsync/robotframework-mqttlibrary.svg?branch=master https://badge.fury.io/py/robotframework-mqttlibrary.svg

MQTTLibrary is a Robot Framework library that provides keywords for testing on MQTT brokers. MQTT is a lightweight protocol for machine-to-machine communication, typically used for IoT messaging. This library uses the paho client library published by eclipse project.

Installation

MQTTLibrary can be installed using pip:

pip install robotframework-mqttlibrary

You can also install it from the source distribution by running:

python setup.py install

You may need to run the above command with administrator privileges.

Usage

Import the library:

*** Settings ***
Library          MQTTLibrary

Connect to the broker, publish and disconnect:

*** Test Cases ***
Publish
    Connect     127.0.0.1
    Publish     topic=test/mqtt_test    message=test message
    [Teardown]  Disconnect

Connect to the broker, subscribe and validate that a message is received:

*** Test Cases ***
Subscribe and Validate
    Connect                 127.0.0.1
    Subscribe and Validate  topic=test/mqtt_test    qos=1   payload=test
    [Teardown]              Disconnect

Keyword documentation is available at: http://randomsync.github.io/robotframework-mqttlibrary.

Also look at tests folder for examples.

For general information about using test libraries with Robot Framework, see Robot Framework User Guide.

Contributing

The keywords in this library are based on some of the methods available in eclipse paho client library. If you’d like to add keywords, see instructions on creating/updating libraries for Robot Framework.

The tests are in tests folder and make use of Robot Framework itself. They are run automatically through travis when code is pushed to a branch. Most of the tests rely on the public mqtt broker at iot.eclipse.org, but some that validate authentication rely on a local broker. You can start a local broker with the provided configuration. You can then run the tests locally:

docker pull eclipse-mosquitto
docker run -d -p 1883:1883 -p 9001:9001 -v $(pwd)/mosquitto:/mosquitto/config eclipse-mosquitto
pybot -P src tests

Make sure to stop the docker container when it is no longer needed.
