Welcome to mqttgateway

mqttgateway is a python framework to build consistent gateways to MQTT networks.

What it does:

  • it deals with all the boilerplate code to manage MQTT connections, load configuration and other data files, and create log handlers;
  • it encapsulates the interface in a class that needs only 2 methods, an initialisation method (__init__) and a loop method (loop or loop_start);
  • it creates an intuitive messaging abstraction layer between the wrapper and the interface;
  • it isolates the syntax and keywords of the MQTT network from the interface.

Who is it for:

Developers of MQTT networks in a domestic environment looking to adopt a definitive syntax for their MQTT messages and to build gateways with their devices that are not MQTT enabled.

Available interfaces

Check the existing fully developped interfaces. Their names usually follows the pattern <interface_name>2mqtt, for example musiccast2mqtt.

This library comes with a dummy interface to test the installation and that can be used as a template.
