Arduino Uno + Laptop + Adafruit IO

by jacobh11 on Sun Nov 25, 2018 3:44 pm

Hi, is it possible to use an arduino uno connected to my laptop (through usb serial) to send data to adafruit io? I have been searching and found the mqtt desktop client, but it is not clear if or how to use this to connect to adafruit io. I realize the platform is meant for cloud and wireless applications mostly, but can my laptop serve as a cloud connection instead of using an ethernet shield for the arduino uno?

This isn't what you are asking for, but I'll mention I recently saw a python library with a command set for sending MQTT messages.

Nothing is currently support/suggested. Possibly using Firmata (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Firmata) for communication with the laptop host would be a starting point.
