MQTT and NodeJS Communication

0 votes

I am doing a project based on IOT. So I need to connect cloudmqtt and nodejs server.

app.js

// Create a MQTT Client
var mqtt = require('mqtt');

// Create a client connection to CloudMQTT for live data
var client = mqtt.connect('xxxxxxxxxxx', {
  username: 'xxxxx',
  password: 'xxxxxxx' 
});

client.on('connect', function() { // When connected
    console.log("Connected to CloudMQTT");
  // Subscribe to the temperature
  client.subscribe('Motion', function() {
    // When a message arrives, do something with it
    client.on('message', function(topic, message, packet) {
      // ** Need to pass message out **
    });
  });

});

Then started my server. But nothing is happening(No error message and no warning).Please help me on this?

Now the cloudmqtt and nodejs server is connected by giving extra parameters like clientId,keepalive,protocolVersion etc.

app.js

var mqtt = require('mqtt');
var options = {
    port: 15255,
    host: 'mqtt://m11.cloudmqtt.com',
    clientId: 'mqttjs_' + Math.random().toString(16).substr(2, 8),
    username: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',
    password: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',
    keepalive: 60,
    reconnectPeriod: 1000,
    protocolId: 'MQIsdp',
    protocolVersion: 3,
    clean: true,
    encoding: 'utf8'
};
var client = mqtt.connect('mqtt://m11.cloudmqtt.com', options);
client.on('connect', function() { // When connected
    console.log('connected');
    // subscribe to a topic
    client.subscribe('topic1/#', function() {
        // when a message arrives, do something with it
        client.on('message', function(topic, message, packet) {
            console.log("Received '" + message + "' on '" + topic + "'");
        });
    });

    // publish a message to a topic
    client.publish('topic1/#', 'my message', function() {
        console.log("Message is published");
        client.end(); // Close the connection when published
    });
});
