|[paho-dev] Python Client inheritance|
Hi guys,I'm using the Python implementation of MQTT through the paho-mqtt package. The documentation says that you can inherit from the Client class to create your own MQTT_client. Nevertheless, inheriting from the client doesn't allow you to define some on_* functions directly in the class because they are overridden by the __init__ call of the base class...
So, there is any particular reason the define Client.on_* to None in the __init__ instead of using classical member functions like this :
class Client(object): def __init__(self, ...): ... # Nothing about self.on_* def on_*(self, ...): passAn implementation like this would not break the actual behavior (you can redefine function, using mqttc.on_connect = my_new_connect_function), and it would be easier to inherit, defining overriding on_* functions in the sub-class.
If this seems a good idea, I propose myself to do the patch. Kind regards, Alexis BRENON -- Doctorant sur le projet CASSIE (alexisbrenon.github.io) Équipe GETALP (getalp.imag.fr) Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble (liglab.fr)
