I have built a single website page that uses the js plugin "mqttws31.js" to get MQTT messages from cloudMQTT and display them in a webpage. The following html code perfectly in chrome but when running in evothings it won't connect to the server.

I get the following error through evothings console log

LOG: used for debugging
LOG: [object Object]
LOG: error

attached is the following html file

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="">

      @import 'ui/css/evothings-app.css';

   // Redirect console.log to Evothings Workbench.
   if (window.hyper && window.hyper.log) { console.log = hyper.log }

      message = new Paho.MQTT.Message("Hello CloudMQTT");
      message.destinationName = "/cloudmqtt";

      console.log("used for debugging");
     function doFail(e){

     // called when the client loses its connection
     function onConnectionLost(responseObject) {
      if (responseObject.errorCode !== 0) {

I would change the line "console.log(e);" to "console.log(JSON.stringify(e));" for more detail on the error.

Hi Fredrik

Thanks for the tip, i made the change you suggested and got the following message

Code: Select all

LOG: {"errorCode":7,"errorMessage":"AMQJS0007E Socket error:undefined."}

I don't know what happened next... but while google-ing the error message it started working, i'm not sure why??

Its working fine now, i'll post another message when i find out the reason for the error in the first place.
