Calling functions in uMQTT
So I tried sending some data to Adafruit IO. I followed the guide created by Chris from core electronics located here. All his code works perfect, I can turn on and off my LED and the random data is sent fine. However I tried to add some of my own functions and it seems that they are not called.
I am used to the python way of creating and calling a function:
def some_random_function print("Apples!") some_random_function()
However the umqtt doesn't feature anything like that so it looks like chris' functions get called automatically.
So I attempted to create my function following what he did, however my function doesn't even get called as I dont get my first print statement.
def send_bme(): print("Wipy trying to send: ", bme280.values) try: client.publish(topic=AIO_BME_FEED, msg=str(bme280.values)) print("Success!") time.sleep(5) except Exception as e: print("Failed!") time.sleep(5)
@dezert754 We've all had those moments :P glad its all sorted.
@paul-thornton Thanks very much! So obvious, I dont know how I missed that, haha.
I took a quick glance at the code you linked.
Looks like he calls his send_random function from the main loop each time.
You'll need to do the same to have yours called
while 1: # Repeat this loop forever client.check_msg()# Action a message if one is received. Non-blocking. send_random() #here. some_random_function() #add a call to your function here
