Morning all - still v impressed with my Tidbyt - just wondering if there is a plan for an MQTT app - one that subscribes to a topic and then displays the message.

I have taken the first steps into Skylark - i thought Tidbyt would be full python, so the Paho MQTT library could be imported and that would make it quite easy (only just learning Skylark but I’m assuming normal Python libraries can not be imported?)…


The way tidbyt updates currently is more a scheduled update so mqtt doesn’t really make sense in that paradigm. But if you wanted to display mqtt messages I would suggest running your own mqtt client on a server somewhere and when an update comes in, run pixlet to render your data and then push the update directly to via the tidbyt API
