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?
Curious about this as well, does the simulator installation include an actual MQTT server that I could publish to? Does it require any other installations to work, or just follow instructions in link below readme?
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.
