MQTT Hyperdash is a fast and efficient dashboard (GUI) for the MQTT framework.
The man machine interface is the interactive tool from which the individual
components of the Internet of Things (IoT) are controlled. In order to avoid
confusion and to minimize the learning time, the interface builds on ergonomic
and logical concepts which allow for an intuitive understanding of its
operation and of the operation of the devices it controls.
Virtual control panels (dashbors) allow users to operate on the graphical
representations of a large set of devices like switches, knobs, sliders,
digital and analog indicators, whose behaviour is equivalent to that of the
real (and sometimes analog) instrumental devices.
The connection with
the mosquitto broker on the lower layers is automatic
and completely transparent.
.SH Filenames
.B hyperdash
processes one input file. The suffix of the input file is
usually .dash.
.BR \-q
Be quiet and print less debug information.
.BR \-v
Be more verbose and print debug information.
.BR \-\-version
shows version, program and other information and exits.
.BR \-h ", " \-\-help
print a short help and exit.
.BR \-\-broker " " \fIurl\fR
specify a broker url which will be used instead of the one define
in the .dash file.
.BR \-\-prefix " " \fIprefix\fR
specify a prefix to all TOPICs defined in the .dash file.
.BR \-\-user " " \fIusername\fR
specify a username for the broker. This overrides the .dash file settings.
.BR \-\-passwd " " \fIpasswd\fR
specify a password for the broker. This overrides the .dash file settings.
.BR \-\-dashpath " " \fIpath\fR
specify a path where .dash files are to be searched.
Hyperdash first seaches for the given filename in the current directory, if not
fond there, it looks into this specified directory. It defaults to
$HOME/.hyperdash/dashboards if that exist and /usr/share/hyperdash/dashboards else.
.BR \-\-fontpath " " \fIpath\fR
specify a path where the true type fonts used by hyperdash are searched for.
It defaults to /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts .
.BR \-\-iconpath " " \fIpath\fR
specify a path where the icons (png files) used by hyperdash are searched for.
It defaults to /usr/share/hyperdash/icons .
.BR \-\-bitmappath " " \fIpath\fR
specify a path where the bitmaps (monochrome) used by hyperdash are searched for.
It defaults to /usr/share/hyperdash/bitmaps .
.BR \-\-fullscreen
enable fullscreen graphics mode.
.BR \-\-noopts
do not pass previous commandline options to sub-dashboards. Normally the path
settings as well as the broker/user/passwd settings are passed to all
sub-dashboards called from this instance. If you do not want this, you can
use --noopts as a last commandline option. It disables the passing of all
options which have been set before. However, options passed after --noopts are passed
For detailed help and description of the MQTT principle take a
