Install

Using the Cordova CLI and NPM, run:

cordova plugin add https://github.com/CesarBalzer/Cordova-Plugin-BTPrinter.git

Usage

Get list of paired bluetooth devices, including printers, if any:

BTPrinter.list(function(data){
        console.log("Success");
        console.log(data); // paired bluetooth devices array
    },function(err){
        console.log("Error");
        console.log(err);
    });

Returns an array with the format:

data[0] = Device 1 name
data[1] = Device 1 MAC address
data[2] = Device 1 type
data[3] = Device 2 name
data[4] = Device 2 MAC address
data[5] = Device 2 type
...

Where device name is the required string to connect to the printer.

Check Bluetooth status

BTPrinter.status(function(data){
	console.log("Success");
	console.log(data) // bt status: true or false
},function(err){
	console.log("Error");
	console.log(err)
});

Connect printer

BTPrinter.connect(function(data){
	console.log("Success");
	console.log(data)
},function(err){
	console.log("Error");
	console.log(err)
}, "PrinterName");

Check if printer is connected

BTPrinter.connected(function(data){
	console.log("Success");
	console.log(data) // connected: true or false
},function(err){
	console.log("Error");
	console.log(err);
});

Disconnect printer

BTPrinter.disconnect(function(data){
	console.log("Success");
	console.log(data)
},function(err){
	console.log("Error");
	console.log(err)
}, "PrinterName");

Obs:

I thought it best to create the function within a timeout

setTimeout(function(){
    BTPrinter.disconnect(function(data){
	console.log("Success");
	console.log(data)
    },function(err){
	console.log("Error");
	console.log(err)
    }, "PrinterName")
}, 1500);

Set text encoding

BTPrinter.setEncoding(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data)
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err)
}, "ISO-8859-1")

Refer to printer's manual for supported encodings and codepages.

Print simple text

BTPrinter.printText(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data)
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err)
}, "String to Print")

Print text with size and align

BTPrinter.printTextSizeAlign(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data)
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err)
}, "String to Print",'0','0')//string, size, align

Print image from path with align

BTPrinter.printImageUrl(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data);
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err);
}, "Path String",'0');//path image, align

In android tests with /storage/emulated/0/Pictures/myfolder/myimage.jpg - size max: 300x300px.

Print image from base64 with align

  • with align still in tests not work alignment)
BTPrinter.printBase64(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data);
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err);
}, "Image Base64 String",'0');//base64 string, align

Print title with size and align

  • with align still in tests not work alignment)
BTPrinter.printTitle(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data);
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err);
}, "String text",'0');//string, size, align

POS printing

BTPrinter.printPOSCommand(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data)
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err)
}, "0C");//OC is a POS command for page feed

Print QRCode

var data = "https://github.com/CesarBalzer/Cordova-Plugin-BTPrinter";
var align = 1; /* 0, 1, 2 */
var model = 49; /* https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=140 */
var size = 32; /* https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=141 */
var eclevel = 50; /* https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=142 */
BTPrinter.printQRCode(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data);
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err);
}, data, align, model, size, eclevel);

Print Barcode

var system = 0; /* Barcode system, defined as "m" at https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=128 */
var data = "012345678901"; /* Barcode data, according to barcode system */
var align = 1; /* 0, 1, 2 */
var position = 2; /* Text position: https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=125 */;
var font = 0; /* Font for HRI characters: https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=126 */
var height = 64; /* Set barcode height: https://reference.epson-biz.com/modules/ref_escpos/index.php?content_id=127*/
BTPrinter.printBarcode(function(data){
    console.log("Success");
    console.log(data);
},function(err){
    console.log("Error");
    console.log(err);
}, system, data, align, position, font, height);
