I was asked how to add new Scripts
I mentioned this before in a post (but this was 6 month ago ;-)).

New scripts can be easily made available for execution via the UI.
The app is scanning a folder named “scripts” located at the MQTT.fx working directory:

[USER_HOME]/Library/Application Support/MQTT-FX/scripts



If this folder does not exists it is created by MQTT.fx containing scripts.
Naming convention:

[INDEX] controls the order of the entry in the drop down menu
__ delimiter between index and name
[NAME the name of the menu entry (words are delimit by ‘_’)

E.g.: With these files in the “scripts” folder

the menu looks like this:
scripts menu

NOTE 1: In 0.0.13 the Update Feature has a bug!
The new install packages are loaded but yet not always renamed on Windows and Linux (this is fixed in 0.0.14). You will find the packages ending with postfix “.download”. You have to rename it manually.

NOTE 2: The format of the configuration has changed!
You may have to delete you current configuration and restart MQTT.fx. MQTT.fx will create a new default configuration for you!
