wishlist item: a built-in mqtt client

Maybe someone has already written an XOP?

Thanks for the suggestion, Thomas.

ZeroMQ is very interesting, though not exactly what I was after.

My plan was to publish data as they are acquired by Igor by wrapping them into JSON and publishing to a broker. Mosquitto provides lightweight, open source, command line MQTT clients for both mac and windows, so that works for me. There are also open source solutions for building plots in web pages. Dygraphs can subscribe to an MQTT broker and build a plot client-side that's updated in real time. I figured out the pieces to do all of this a long time ago, but never found time to put it all together.

Collecting data via MQTT would also be interesting.
