The missing Web Bluetooth module for Angular

Yarn it

yarn add @manekinekko/angular-web-bluetooth @types/web-bluetooth

or NPM it

npm i -S @manekinekko/angular-web-bluetooth @types/web-bluetooth

Note: Make also sure the @types/web-bluetooth is installed correctly in your `nodemodules`. _

Use it

1) import the WebBluetoothModule module

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { WebBluetoothModule } from '@manekinekko/angular-web-bluetooth';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    //...,
    WebBluetoothModule.forRoot({
      enableTracing: true // or false, this will enable logs in the browser's console
    })
  ]
  //...
})
export class AppModule {}

2.a) use it in your service/component (the easiest way)

Here is an annotated example using the BluetoothCore service:

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { BluetoothCore } from '@manekinekko/angular-web-bluetooth';

@Injectable({
  providedIn: 'root'
})
export class BatteryLevelService {

  constructor(public readonly ble: BluetoothCore) {}

  getDevice() {
    // call this method to get the connected device
    return this.ble.getDevice$();
  }

  stream() {
    // call this method to get a stream of values emitted by the device for a given characteristic
    return this.ble.streamValues$().pipe(
      map((value: DataView) => value.getInt8(0))
    );
  }

  disconnectDevice() {
    // call this method to disconnect from the device. This method will also stop clear all subscribed notifications
    this.ble.disconnectDevice();
  }

  value() {
    console.log('Getting Battery level...');

    return this.ble
      .value$({
        service: 'battery_service',
        characteristic: 'battery_level'
      });
  }

}

2.b) use it in your service/component (the advanced way)

Here is an annotated example using the BluetoothCore service:

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { map, mergeMap } from 'rxjs/operators';
import { BluetoothCore } from '@manekinekko/angular-web-bluetooth';

@Injectable({
  providedIn: 'root'
})
export class BatteryLevelService {
  static GATT_CHARACTERISTIC_BATTERY_LEVEL = 'battery_level';
  static GATT_PRIMARY_SERVICE = 'battery_service';

  constructor(public ble: BluetoothCore) {}

  getDevice() {
    // call this method to get the connected device
    return this.ble.getDevice$();
  }

  stream() {
    // call this method to get a stream of values emitted by the device
    return this.ble.streamValues$().pipe(map((value: DataView) => value.getUint8(0)));
  }

  disconnectDevice() {
    this.ble.disconnectDevice();
  }

  /**
   * Get Battery Level GATT Characteristic value.
   * This logic is specific to this service, this is why we can't abstract it elsewhere.
   * The developer is free to provide any service, and characteristics they want.
   *
   * @return Emites the value of the requested service read from the device
   */
  value() {
    console.log('Getting Battery level...');

    return this.ble

        // 1) call the discover method will trigger the discovery process (by the browser)
        .discover$({
          acceptAllDevices: true,
          optionalServices: [BatteryLevelService.GATT_PRIMARY_SERVICE]
        })
        .pipe(

          // 2) get that service
          mergeMap((gatt: BluetoothRemoteGATTServer) => {
            return this.ble.getPrimaryService$(gatt, BatteryLevelService.GATT_PRIMARY_SERVICE);
          }),

          // 3) get a specific characteristic on that service
          mergeMap((primaryService: BluetoothRemoteGATTService) => {
            return this.ble.getCharacteristic$(primaryService, BatteryLevelService.GATT_CHARACTERISTIC_BATTERY_LEVEL);
          }),

          // 4) ask for the value of that characteristic (will return a DataView)
          mergeMap((characteristic: BluetoothRemoteGATTCharacteristic) => {
            return this.ble.readValue$(characteristic);
          }),

          // 5) on that DataView, get the right value
          map((value: DataView) => value.getUint8(0))
        )
  }
}
