Hi Christian how about adding lib mosquitto wrapper?

I believe the license allows for this.

Maybe someday we may do a MQTT library, but not sure whether this one is the best to use.


Also we have RabbitMQ, which may also do MQTT as far as I know.

Yeah that one is too much configuration for our customers use. We need just MQTT, without the additional complexities we would not use.

@Christian_Schmitz I’m trying to run MBS 24.2 with an older IDE (Xojo 2019r1) and according to the compatibly matrix this should be possible. However it seems 24.2 is referencing DateTime which doesn’t exist in Xojo 2019:

Is this something that can be or will be fixed in 24.3? If not, do you know what the latest MBS plugin that is actually compatible with Xojo 2019R1.1 ?

Yes, I can fix it for pr2. No problem.

Edit: never mind, I found it here: Monkeybread Xojo plugin - AccessibilityMBS methods

MonkeyBread Software Releases the MBS Xojo Plugins in version 24.3


Just updated your Plugins from 24.2 to 24.3 using Plugins Pro and see the following error:

Can’t find such a Plugin :person_shrugging:

Clearing the Xojo IDE Caches and then restarting the IDE, seem to have fixed the “issue”. :+1:
