2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade mqtt-explorer -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --prerelease [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade mqtt-explorer -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --prerelease

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

  • Visualize topics and topic activity
  • Delete retained topics
  • Search/filter topics
  • Delete topics recursively
  • Diff view of current and previous received messages
  • Publish topics
  • Plot numeric topics
  • Retain a history of each topic
  • Dark/Light Themes

The hierarchical view makes this tool so easy to use and differentiates the MQTT Explorer from other great MQTT clients like MQTTLens, MQTTBox and MQTT.fx.
This MQTT Client strives to be a MQTT swiss-army-knife, the perfect tool to integrate new services and IoT devices on your network.


This MQTT Client is optimized to handle thousands of topics and at hundreds of thousands messages per minute.

Custom subscriptions can limit the amount of messages MQTT Explorer needs to process, subscriptions can be managed in the advanced connection settings.
In very large productive environments brokers may handle an extreme load of topics, subscribing with a wildcard topic is in this scenario not advised.

IoT Applications

List of useful IoT applications using MQTT to integrate devices / services

  • Home Assistant - Open source home automation gateway
  • OpenHAB - Smart Home Gateway
  • Node-RED - Flow-based programming for the Internet of Things
  • zigbee2mqtt - A ZigBee to MQTT bridge
  • Tasmota - ESP8266 firmware with MQTT support


No personal data is processed, sent or stored.

The app sends telemetry and error reports, this enables me to quickly react on bugs/errors and understand what’s going on. Responding quickly to errors is one key element in producing a reliable software product.

It basically sends: app version, processor architecture, operating system, used memory, user interactions and error stacks.

Even though the data is purely technical, an option to disable telemetry is planned. See

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
