  "port": 8883,
  "clientId": "something",
  "thingName": "something",
  "caCert": "path/to/root-CA.crt",
  "clientCert": "path/to/2a338xx2xxf-certificate.pem.crt",
  "privateKey": "path/to/aad380efffx-private.pem.key"
}

You may change cert files path to where you placed.

Pub

mqttcli pub -t "some/where" -m "your message"

or

tail -f /var/log/nginx.log | mqttcli pub -t "some/where" -s

-s is diffrent from mosquitto_pub, it sends one line to one message.

Sub

mqttcli sub -t "some/#"

PubSub

Note: This subcommand is just a concept work. Might be delete in the future.

Publish from stdin AND Subscribe from some topics and print stdout.
