This app can be used to remote control your RaspberryPi via MQTT with your smartphone. Just type in some commands and see the results after the execution on the Pi. It works with PubSub (Publish-Subscribe), so you can even command multiple Pis with one command at the same time.
The advantages are the following:
- You can run commands on the commandline of the Pi without attaching a keyboard and a monitor.
- You can remotely command your Pi without needing to know its IP address.
- The connection even works if the Smartphone and the Pi are in different networks.
- You can can connect multiple smartphones and multiple Pis at the same time.
To get it working, you need to start a little Python script on the RaspberryPi which is included in this app. You can copy the script to your internal memory storage from within the app.
It also requires an MQTT broker, but it is preconfigured with a public broker, so that it works out of the box.
This app was created at the DB HackDay on the 17th and 18th of June 2016.
