React-Native plugin for the bluetooth ESC/POS & TSC printers.

Any questions or bug please raise a issue.

Still under developement

May support Android /IOS

GitHub license npm version


Step 1

Install via NPM Check In NPM

npm install react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer --save

Or install via github

npm install https://github.com/januslo/react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer.git --save


Link the plugin to your RN project

react-native link react-native-bluetooth-escpos-printer

Or you may need to link manually. //TODO: manually link guilds.


Refers to your JS files

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

Usage and APIs


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

  • isBluetoothEnabled ==> async function, check whether Bluetooth service is enabled. //TODO: consider to return the the devices information already bound and paired here..
     BluetoothManager.isBluetoothEnabled().then((enabled)=> {
                alert(enabled) // enabled ==> true /false
            }, (err)=> {
  • enableBluetooth ==> diff + ANDROID ONLY async function, enable the bluetooth service, returns the devices information already bound and paired. diff - IOS would just resovle with nil
                var paired = [];
                if(&& r.length>0){
                    for(var i=0;i<r.length;i++){
                            paired.push(JSON.parse(r[i])); // NEED TO PARSE THE DEVICE INFORMATION
  • disableBluetooth ==> diff + ANDROID ONLY async function ,disable the bluetooth service. diff - IOS would just resovle with nil
            // do something.
  • scanDevices ==> async function , scans the bluetooth devices, returns devices found and pared 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, (rsp)=> {
                this._deviceAlreadPaired(rsp) // rsp.devices would returns the paired devices array in JSON string.
            BluetoothManager.EVENT_DEVICE_FOUND, (rsp)=> {
                this._deviceFoundEvent(rsp) // rsp.devices would returns the found device object in JSON string

samples with scanDevices function

            .then((s)=> {
                var ss = JSON.parse(s);//JSON string
                    pairedDs: this.state.pairedDs.cloneWithRows(ss.paired || []),
                    foundDs: this.state.foundDs.cloneWithRows(ss.found || []),
                    loading: false
                }, ()=> {
                    this.paired = ss.paired || [];
                    this.found = ss.found || [];
            }, (er)=> {
                    loading: false
                alert('error' + JSON.stringify(er));
  • connect ==> async function, connect the specified devices, if not bound, bound dailog promps.
    BluetoothManager.connect(rowData.address) // the device address scanned.
  • unpaire ==> async function, disconnect and unpaire the specified devices
        //success here
        //error here
  • 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)
