Wordpress MQTT plugin
MqttCogs maintains a persistent (well semi persistent) connection to an Mqtt Broker. When a message arrives on a subscribed topic, it persists it to a custom database table in wordpress.
So that you can ‘see’ the data in your blog it provides a number shortcodes for visualizing your data. Visualization uses Google Visualization

I’ve been mucking around with IoT (internet of things) projects for over a year now. I started with Arduino & the MySensors project. Annoyingly, it really isn’t as easy as you think!
I didn’t want to rent a server and then have to install IOT Controller software. What I do have though is a wordpress blog. This costs me $1.50 per month to rent. So I started wondering about getting MQTT data into the WordPress database and visualizing the data on my blog.
