A command line utility for bridging data from a MQTT broker to Streamr Network with stream auto-creation and other useful features. This utility is basically a script with a MQTT client and a Streamr light node, and some code to glue the two together.


npm install -g @streamr/mqtt-streamr


To get help, including a list of all the command-line options, simply run mqtt-streamr.

Minimal usage: mqtt-streamr --mqtt-url [mqtt-url] --topic [path] --private-key [key]

Required options

--mqtt-url [url]

The MQTT server URL to connect to, for example --mqtt-url wss://some-mqtt-server.com.

--topic [topic]

MQTT topic/path to subscribe to. Give this option multiple times to subscribe to several topics. Can include wildcards. Example: --topic /home/bedroom/lamp

--private-key [key]

Ethereum private key to use on the Streamr Network. If you don't have one, you can export a key from a wallet like Metamask or generate a private key here.

Additional options


Give this option to print all the data to the console.


Give this option to make all created streams publicly readable. By default, created streams are private to you.

--stream-name-template [template]

Default: $topic

Give this option to set how the stream name is constructed from the MQTT topic. The string $topic in the template is replaced by the actual topic. Example: My MQTT topic: $topic.

Note that you can direct all data go to a single stream by just defining its name without the placeholder $topic in it.

--stream-id [id]

If this option is given, all data will be published to a single pre-existing stream with this id. Topic auto-creation will be disabled.

--topic-levels [num]

Default: (unlimited)

Number of topic levels to include when auto-creating streams, while truncating subsequent topic hierarchy levels. For example, data in /europe/switzerland and /europe/finland would both be produced to stream /europe if the topic-level is set to 1.

--transform [jsonata-syntax]

Give this option to transform JSON messages before producing them to Streamr. This option follows the JSONata syntax. By default no transform is applied.

--log-interval [num]

Default: 60

Stats logging interval in seconds.

--reconnect-on-data-timeout [num]

Default: 900

If no data is received for this period of time, try to reconnect to the MQTT broker. The default is 15 minutes. Set to 0 to disable.


If this option is given, the script doesn't really create streams or produce data to Streamr. It just reads from the MQTT broker and logs the data to console.
