Huzzah esp8266 + MQTT, publish while subscribed?

by flimshaw on Thu Nov 19, 2015 6:49 pm

Is it possible to publish a message on MQTT while subscribed to another channel? As an example, I want to send a button press on MQTT, and in the background receive light on/off messages via MQTT. My first thought was subscribing with a long timeout, and publishing from within a pin change interrupt handler, but that crashes and understandably so. Is it possible to do live bidirectional communication with MQTT? Should I be maybe looking into another kind of socket connection instead?

You should be able to subscribe and publish with mqtt and the esp8266.

Here is an example of a publish and subscribe:
