MQTT in curl
A plain "GET" subscribes to the topic and prints all published messages. Doing a "POST" publishes the post data to the topic and exits.
curl -d 75 mqtt://host/home/bedroom/dimmer
What does curl deliver as a response to a subscribe
It outputs two bytes topic length (MSB | LSB), the topic followed by the payload.
- Only QoS level 0 is implemented for publish
- No way to set retain flag for publish
- No TLS (mqtts) support
- Naive EAGAIN handling will not handle split messages
