Debugging aid using MQTT Explorer

Just thought I'd share a little technique that I'm finding quite useful

I'm basically using my local MQTT broker to store logging information and then using MQTT Explorer as my inspection tool

It lets me easily read through big objects

Now obviously if I restart my broker - I lose the info (as I don't persist its database) but for daily debugging that's perfectly acceptable to me

I log multiple things to mutiple log topics but all with basic approach of dd:mm:yy/hh:mm:ss.zzz topic structure

Coming in handy for working out why when I said "skybox skip" on the Dot in the kitchen (to fast forward the adverts) it didn't respond :slight_smile:

I'll have to add that to list of alternate commands as it recorded "skin" on two attempts!
