react-native-barometer

Provides barometric and altitude information for React-native apps for both IOS and Android.

Getting started

yarn add react-native-barometer

or

npm install react-native-barometer --save

Mostly automatic installation (react-native 0.59 and lower)

react-native link react-native-barometer

Manual installation (react-native 0.59 and lower)

Manually link the library on iOS

Open RNBarometer.xcodeproj in Xcode

Drag RNBarometer.xcodeproj to your project on Xcode (usually under the Libraries group on Xcode):

xcode-add

Link libRNBarometer.a binary with libraries

Click on your main project file (the one that represents the .xcodeproj) select Build Phases and drag the static library from the Products folder inside the Library you are importing to Link Binary With Libraries (or use the + sign and choose library from the list):

xcode-link

Using CocoaPods

Update your Podfile

pod 'react-native-barometer', path: '../node_modules/react-native-barometer'
Manually link the library on Android

android/settings.gradle

include ':react-native-barometer'

project(':react-native-barometer').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-barometer/android')

android/app/build.gradle

dependencies {
...
implementation project(':react-native-barometer')
}

android/app/src/main/.../MainApplication.java

On top, where imports are:

import com.sensorworks.RNBarometerPackage;

Add the RNBarometerPackage class to your list of exported packages.

@Override
protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
  return Arrays.asList(
    new MainReactPackage(),
    new RNBarometerPackage()
  );
}

Since react-native 0.60 and higher, autolinking makes the installation process simpler

Usage

Example

import Barometer from 'react-native-barometer';

Barometer.watch((payload => {});

Methods

Summary


Details

isSupported()

Before using, check to see if barometric updates are supported on the device.

const isSupported = Barometer.isSupported();

setInterval()

Optionally request an update interval in ms. The default update rate is (approx) 200ms, i.e. 5Hz.

// request updates once every second

Barometer.setInterval(1000);

setLocalPressure()

The altitude event contains two altitudes. The first is the standard atmosphere altitude based upon the standard atmospheric pressure of 1013.25hPa. The second is an altitude based upon a pressure that you can configure. You typically use this to calibrate the altitude to a reference altitude, for example the field elevation of an airport.

// set the local pressure to 985hPa

Barometer.setLocalPressure(985);

watch()

Barometer.watch(success);

Invokes the success callback whenever the pressure or altitude changes. The payload delivered via the callback is defined in the example below.

Returns a watchId (number).

Parameters:

Name Type Required Description
success function Yes Invoked at a default interval of 5hz This can be changed by using the setInterval method.

Example:

const watchId = Barometer.watch((payload) =>{

/*

payload.timestamp - sample time in ms referenced to January 1, 1970 UTC

payload.pressure - current air pressure in hPa

payload.altitudeASL - altitude in metres based upon standard atmosphere

payload.altitude - altitude in metres based upon the local pressure

payload.relativeAltitude - altitude gained or lost since `watch()` was called.

payload.verticalSpeed - current vertical speed (+/-) in metres per second

*/

);

clearWatch()

Barometer.clearWatch(watchID);

Parameters:

Name Type Required Description
watchID number Yes Id as returned by watch().

stopObserving()

Barometer.stopObserving();

Stops observing for all barometric updates.

In addition, it removes all listeners previously registered.

Note that this method does nothing if the Barometer.watch(successCallback) method has not previously been called.
