Help to understand docs

Post by lazarvgd » Tue May 29, 2018 9:34 am

Hi there,

I have problem with docs, due to my misunderstanding or lack of information.

The problem:
I am reading this article http://micropython-iot-hackathon.readth ... /mqtt.html about setting up mqtt on esp8266, but what am I missing is the part when i need to upload wifi.py and mqtt_writer.py files

open TTYDEVICE
put wifi.py
put mqtt_writer.py

I do not have these files, also there is mentioned :
MicroPython already has an MQTT client in its standard library, so we do not need to do much on the ESP8266-side. We will just copy over some convenience modules provided by ThingFlow.

where I can find these modules?

also, it is not provided code example where is explained how to setup mqtt client on esp, where to put ip address of the broker or what topics to be subscribed/publish.

Can somebody clarify this, please?

Thanks :)

That tutorial is centred on ThingFlow. Unless someone here has experience of that setup, you may need to contact the authors.
