Buttplug Typescript/JS Client Implementation

Discourse Forum Discord Twitter

A implementation of the Buttplug Client in Typescript/Javascript, implementing the Version 3 Buttplug Spec. It is expected to run from a browser against either Intiface Central (GUI), Initface Engine (CLI), or the Buttplug WASM Server.

Compilation information

buttplug-js builds to 3 different types of library:

  • CommonJS for node
  • UMD and ES Modules for the web

For node, simply include the package as you would any other package.

For inclusion in web projects, the UMD project can be found at dist/web/buttplug.js (Note that the namespace is buttplug, so you'll access types like buttplug.ButtplugClient, etc...), and the es6 module at dist/web/buttplug.mjs.

Using buttplug-js with Node

buttplug-js works with both pure web builds, as well as node applications. To use buttplug-js with node, use the ButtplugNodeWebsocketClientConnector class instead of the ButtplugBrowserWebsocketClientConnector class. That should be the only change needed, all of the API stays the same. See the Documentation section for more info.

(The WASM Server does not work with pure node applications. It requires a browser environment in order to run. See the WASM project README for more info.)

Documentation and Examples

Documentation on how to use Buttplug in general, as well as examples for buttplug-js, can be found in the Buttplug Developer Guide.

API documentation for buttplug-js can be found at https://buttplugio.github.io/buttplug-js.

If you would like to see a demo of using Buttplug in a pure web context, check out the following glitch project, which shows how to pull the Buttplug libraries from a CDN and use them in a pure HTML/JS context without node:
