# Paho Python usage example
This example contains the complete code of Paho Python in Python connecting to EMQ X Broker, sending and receiving messages:
import paho.mqtt.client as mqtt #Connection success callback def on_connect(client, userdata, flags, rc): print('Connected with result code '+str(rc)) client.subscribe('testtopic/#') # Message receiving callback def on_message(client, userdata, msg): print(msg.topic+" "+str(msg.payload)) client = mqtt.Client() # Specify callback function client.on_connect = on_connect client.on_message = on_message # Establish a connection client.connect('broker.emqx.io', 1883, 60) # Publish a message client.publish('emqtt',payload='Hello World',qos=0) client.loop_forever()
# Paho Python MQTT 5.0 support
Currently, Paho Python is still adapting to MQTT 5.0 and has not yet been fully supported it.
