Working to make a network of remote sensors using MQTT I'm looking for an implementation of a broker an a matching client.


  • broker to be deployed in a cloud server like EC-2 and client to be deployed in a raspberry pi

  • easy and quick to get started to allow the prototyping process to start as soon as possible

  • complete documentation. Including getting started, general usability and advance issues like security

  • projects with active communities to support the implementation with many people using it

  • easy customization and usability

  • to have a simple way to store the received data in a database using a client or with the broker

  • client in python

  • wide compatibility with hardware and with MQTT versions

I made some research and found Mosquitto and Paho but I would like you to suggest and give me some recommendations about them or another ones.

PD: Thanks to all that answer before recommending how to improve the question

    Hi @Juan, this is a good edit to your question. Perhaps to make it even clearer, you could edit further to explain why Mosquitto and Paho didn't meet your needs? Then we'd know exactly what you need and will be able to reopen the question. Good luck.

    I was looking for recommendations about clients and brokers. I continued working with mosquitto and paho and until now it's all right. I was specially asking about the size of their community, what were your opinions about them and if you think that were good options to cover the requirements. Aug 29 '19 at 17:16
