NeatLE

NeatLE is an Android BTLE (Bluetooth low energy) support library that simplifies management of BTLE connections, subscriptions, devices and operations. It provides a single entry point for all BTLE related operations.

Features

  • Monitor a connection to a BTLE device.
  • Send read / write commands and receive responses.
  • Subscribe to characteristics and get notified of changes.

Installation

Include the NeatLE library in your Android project as a Gradle dependency:

dependencies {
    compile 'si.inova:neatle:0.9.4'
}

Examples

Monitor for connections:

A ConnectionMonitor tries to connect to a specific BTLE device, and if configured with setKeepAlive(true), will try to maintain that connection until the monitor is stopped. The ConnectionStateListener will be notified of any changes to the connection, (e.g. device connected / disconnected).

ConnectionMonitor monitor =
        Neatle.createConnectionMonitor(context, Neatle.getDevice("00:11:22:33:44:55"));
monitor.setOnConnectionStateListener(new ConnectionStateListener() {
    @Override
    public void onConnectionStateChanged(Connection connection, int newState) {
        if(connection.isConnected()){
            // The device has connected
        }
    }
});
monitor.start();

Create an operation:

An Operation is a series of read / write commands that can be executed for a specific BTLE device. It can have multiple read and write operations, that will be executed on the device sequentially.

An operation can also be executed more than once.

BluetoothDevice device = Neatle.getDevice("00:11:22:33:44:55");
UUID batteryService = Neatle.createUUID(0x180f);
final UUID batteryCharacteristic = Neatle.createUUID(0x2a19);

Operation operation = Neatle.createOperationBuilder(context)
        .read(batteryService, batteryCharacteristic)
        .onFinished(new SimpleOperationObserver() {
            @Override
            public void onOperationFinished(Operation op, OperationResults results) {
                if(results.wasSuccessful()){
                    int battery = results.getResult(batteryCharacteristic).getValueAsInt();
                }
            }
        })
        .build(device);
operation.execute();

Create a subscription:

A Subscription listens for notification events on a specific service for a specific characteristic on the BTLE device, and reports them back to the caller.

BluetoothDevice device = Neatle.getDevice("00:11:22:33:44:55");
UUID batteryService = Neatle.createUUID(0x180f);
UUID batteryCharacteristic = Neatle.createUUID(0x2a19);

CharacteristicSubscription subscription =
        Neatle.createSubscription(context, device, batteryService, batteryCharacteristic);
subscription.setOnCharacteristicsChangedListener(new CharacteristicsChangedListener() {
    @Override
    public void onCharacteristicChanged(CommandResult change) {
        if (change.wasSuccessful()) {
            int batteryLevel = change.getValueAsInt();
        }
    }
});
subscription.start();

Note: An active subscription will keep a ConnectionMonitor with setKeepAlive(false) (the default setting) alive.

Permissions

The following permission are required by NeatLE (and are already defined in it's manifest):

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />

The ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION permission is considered dangerous on Android 6.0 (23) and up, and should be requested manually by the developer, before running NeatLE.
