Development? Board Simulation

Is there any way to simulate the board without having one? 


Maybe is there any documentation on the MQTT topics the board posts? Maybe I could just simulate data coming from a fake device?


Pretty new to all of this, just trying to experiment. 


The WiFi Interface has a simulator which can simulate most RAPI data coming from the device. Take a look at the network interface in your browser when running the simulator: https://github.com/OpenEVSE/ESP8266_WiFi_v2.x/tree/master/simulator


We have a live version of the simulator up and running here: https://openevse.openenergymonitor.org/

I can't publish to an MQTT topic or issue any RAPI commands via the simulator as far as I can tell. It all just returns $NK


Would I have to create a c++ file with some bogus params to send to the same topics? Are there not any unit tests on this functionality I could maybe look at for reference?
