Table of Contents


Step 1

Install via NPM Check In NPM

npm install @brooons/react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer --save

Step 2

Link the plugin to your RN project

react-native link @brooons/react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer

Manual linking (Android)

Ensure your build files match the following requirements:

  1. (React Native 0.59 and lower) Define the react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer project in android/settings.gradle:
include ':react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer'
project(':react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/@brooons/react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer/android')
  1. (React Native 0.59 and lower) Add the react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer as an dependency of your app in android/app/build.gradle:
dependencies {
  implementation project(':react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer')
  1. (React Native 0.59 and lower) Add import cn.jystudio.bluetooth.RNBluetoothEscposPrinterPackage; and new RNBluetoothEscposPrinterPackage() in your MainApplication.java :

Step 3

Refers to your JS files

import { BluetoothManager, BluetoothEscposPrinter, BluetoothTscPrinter } from '@brooons/react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer';

Usage and APIs


BluetoothManager is the module for Bluetooth service management, supports Bluetooth status check, enable/disable Bluetooth service, scan devices, connect/unpair devices.

checkBluetoothEnabled(): Promise

Async function, checks whether Bluetooth service is enabled.

// TODO: consider to return the the devices information already bound and paired here..

const isEnabled = await BluetoothManager.checkBluetoothEnabled();

console.log(isEnabled); // true/false

enableBluetooth(): Promise

Async function, enables the bluetooth service, returns the devices information already bound and paired.

const devices = await BluetoothManager.enableBluetooth();

return devices
  .reduce((acc, device) => {
    try {
      return [...acc, JSON.parse(device)];
    } catch (e) {
      return acc;
  }, [])
  .filter((device) => device.address);

disableBluetooth(): Promise

Async function, disables the bluetooth service.

await BluetoothManager.disableBluetooth();

scanDevices(): Promise

Async function, scans the bluetooth devices, returns devices found and paired after scan finish. Event [BluetoothManager.EVENT_DEVICE_ALREADY_PAIRED] would be emitted with devices bound; event [BluetoothManager.EVENT_DEVICE_FOUND] would be emitted (many time) as long as new devices found.

samples with events:

  BluetoothManager.EVENT_DEVICE_ALREADY_PAIRED, (response) => {
    // response.devices would returns the paired devices array in JSON string.
  BluetoothManager.EVENT_DEVICE_FOUND, (response) => {
    // response.devices would returns the found device object in JSON string

Sample with scanDevices function

const {
}: {
  found: Array<{ address: string; name?: string }>;
  paired: Device[];
} = JSON.parse(await BluetoothManager.scanDevices());

return {
  found: found.filter((device) => !!device.name),

connect(address: string): Promise

async function, connects the specified device, if not bound, bound dailog prompts.

await BluetoothManager.connect(address);

disconnect(address: string): Promise

async function, disconnects the specified device.

await BluetoothManager.disconnect(address);

getConnectedDeviceAddress(): Promise

async function, Return the address of the currently connected device .

await BluetoothManager.getConnectedDeviceAddress();

unpair(address: string): Promise

async function, disconnects and unpairs the specified devices

await BluetoothManager.unpair(address);

Events of BluetoothManager module

EVENT_DEVICE_ALREADY_PAIRED Emits the devices array already paired
EVENT_DEVICE_DISCOVER_DONE Emits when the scan done
EVENT_DEVICE_FOUND Emits when device found during scan
EVENT_CONNECTION_LOST Emits when device connection lost
EVENT_UNABLE_CONNECT Emits when error occurs while trying to connect device
EVENT_CONNECTED Emits when device connected
EVENT_BLUETOOTH_NOT_SUPPORT Emits when device not support bluetooth(android only)
