Esp8266 - esp easy

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know I did a fresh install of OP and ESP Easy. Everything is working perfectly now! Mysteries of modern technology...

Thanks for your help and time!

I've been playing with this for a while too. 

I tried UDP and ran into some problems around the UDP connection plugin, not being happy about the source names being different in the incoming JSON.

I found that in order to log to influx-db I need to use the setting to synthesise the date as if replaying  from logs, but this is not ideal. I would like to know if there's a way to take the ESP system date and put that in the message?

As the only thing I'm really interested in is long term logging of this data, I'm working in celsius for now.

I've also tried using custom rules to produce signalK JSON if anyone's interested: 

Code:
on System#Boot do
 timerSet,1,1
endon

On Rules#Timer=1 do
   Publish /vessels/self/environment/temperature/Fridge1K/, '{"updates": [{"source": "Fridge1Rule","values":[ {"path":"environment.temperature.fridge1","value": '[fridge1#temp]' }]}]}'
   Publish /vessels/self/environment/temperature/Fridge2K/, '{"updates": [{"source": "Fridge2Rule","values":[ {"path":"environment.temperature.fridge2","value": '[fridge2#temp]' }]}]}'
 timerSet,1,1
endon

Anyone care to walk me through this - I am utterly stuck after having been away from it all for a while. Undecided In short I want to some of the stuff @Paddy did a while back. I want to send SignalK data over MQTT and display it on a 2004LCD preferably 4 values. Anyone able to walk me through it? D1Minis with ESPeasy.

FYI. openplotter-iot app is about to be published. It contains a local MQTT broker and python MQTT clients to communicate with local and remote brokers. Never tested ESP Easy but it should work perfectly with this new app.

I've just had major heroic help from @tkurki to sort out my MQTT conflicts messing up my SK server, so I guess the last thing I need is another MQTT server. :-o As a noob I do need some pointers so I can understand the MQTT logic. preferably a setup example using ESP Easy - with or without LCD and with or without node red.

Ranur I am right there with you on trying to learn MQTT and SignalK. If you have any tips, or step by step advice, I would welcome it.

I have recently learned ESPeasy on a NodeMCU board. I have it reading 1-wire thermisters with no problem. But I can't figure out how to use the MQTT settings on the board to send data out. I could try to give EAPeasy points if you want.

Unless you really need mqtt for something or you are fluent in it and it’s your tool of choice you can send sensor values as Signal K directly with https://github.com/SignalK/SensESP. Just saying...
