Adapter for MQTT <-> Google Cloud Pub/Sub
The adapter interfaces with RabbitMQ (any AMQP-compliant broker should work), and sends/receives messages to Google Cloud Pub/Sub.
Now that Google's Cloud IoT Core has gone GA, we recommend that people use IoT Core instead of this IOT Adapter. IoT Core will scale far beyond a single RabbitMQ instance, and does not require management of a VM. It also has a stronger device authentication model.
The gcp-iot-adapter will remain available, but will not be actively maintained.
Make sure that docker is installed, then run this:
You'll end up with a tarball:
amqp_pubsub.tar.gz and a Debian package:
gcp-iot-adapter_*.deb. All dependencies are included.
See the GCP IoT Connection Broker Quickstart for a walkthrough.
Using the adapter
Install the adapter on the server running RabbitMQ. Edit the config file:
/etc/gcp-iot-adapter.conf. Restart the service. See the Quickstart for more info.
- MQTT Topic names should not have periods
.in them. This is the separator used in AMQP topics.
- The adapter doesn't support TLS for the connection to RabbitMQ - but this shouldn't be a problem when running on the local RabbitMQ server. It does connect to Pub/Sub via TLS.
- Buildng the adapter from scratch requires Erlang 18.3 and Elixir 1.2. The packages (tarball and .deb) include this, and building with Docker will take care of those dependencies.
