BlueFlow

Android Bluetooth classic API wrapped in Coroutines / Flow inspired by RxBluetooth and AndroidBluetoothLibrary.

Dependency

Add the following to your app module build.gradle file. Note that the respective Coroutine dependencies should also be included in the project.

dependencies {
   implementation "io.github.thanosfisherman.blueflow:blueflow:<latest-version-number-here>"
}

Permissions

The following permissions must be granted for this lib to be able to work correctly.

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN" />
<!-- Dangerous Permissions below. Make sure you explicitly ask for location Permissions in your app on Android 6.0+ -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>

Usage

Under Construction! For now check the MainActivity sample that demonstrates the bluetooth device discovery.

Creating an instance

Create a Singleton instance of BlueFlow like so

val blueFlow: BlueFlow = BlueFlow.getInstance(applicationContext)

Checking for Bluetooth availability

You can check whether bluetooth is available on a specific device and/or if it's enabled or not.

      if (blueFlow.isBluetoothAvailable()) { //Checks if bluetooth is supported on this device
          if (blueFlow.isBluetoothEnabled()) { //Checks if bluetooth is actually turned ON for this device
              Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "BLUETOOTH IS ON", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
          } else {
              Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "PLEASE ENABLE BLUETOOTH", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
          }
      } else { //Bluetooth is NOT Supported on the device
              Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "BLUETOOTH NOT AVAILABLE ON THIS DEVICE", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()
      }
