The Tinamous MQTT server provides support for status messages, measurements, alerts as well as pub/sub for your own messages. Status messages, measurements and alerts posted through the web site or REST API are published to the MQTT server and can be subscribed to.
Naturally MQTT doesn't support the full Tinamous API, their is no support for clearing messages, getting historical measurements/status posts or adding users, however it does provide a real time stream of messages, measurements and alerts which is ideal for many small connected devices and saves you having to learn the Tinamous REST API.
The server also does not support the full features of the MQTT protocol, please keep an eye on the Tinamous Trello page for future developments.
You can publish measurements in two different ways, either as a simple measurement value to the appropriate device/channel/field or as a json object with multiple fields.
Alerts support 3 levels, "Critical", "Error" and "Warning". With the alert a message is also added.
