ESP8266 + Arduino Uno + Eclipse Ponte HTTP Bridge = MQTT Magic

In my last two posts I covered how I setup the Eclipse Ponte Bridge locally and how my Arduino Yun was reading a MQTT topic from the Ponte Bridge using HTTPClient. In this post I will cover how I used an ESP8266 with Arduino Uno to publish a MQTT message with RGB values.

HttpClient with MQTT On Arduino Yun

In the earlier blog post, I introduced Ponte and set it up locally on my windows PC. In this post I will demonstrate how I used the HttpClient on the Arduino Yun to read the MQTT messages and light up the LED strip using the Infineon Shield. This code does not use any of the MQTT Client libraries to subscribe to a topic. It just uses the HttpClient available on Arduino Yun’s bridge library and keeps polling the HTTP bridge on the Ponte server for message availability.
