react-native-thermal-receipt-printer

Fork of react-native-printer and add implement for auto connect printer with usb A React Native Library to support USB/BLE/Net printer

Node.js Package

Installation

yarn add react-native-thermal-receipt-printer

Troubleshoot

  • when install in react-native version >= 0.60, xcode show this error
duplicate symbols for architecture x86_64

that because the .a library uses CocoaAsyncSocket library and Flipper uses it too

Podfile

...
  use_native_modules!
 
  # Enables Flipper.
  #
  # Note that if you have use_frameworks! enabled, Flipper will not work and
  # you should disable these next few lines.
  # add_flipper_pods!
  # post_install do |installer|
  #   flipper_post_install(installer)
  # end
...

and comment out code related to Flipper in ios/AppDelegate.m

Development workflow

To get started with the project, run yarn bootstrap in the root directory to install the required dependencies for each package:

yarn bootstrap

While developing, you can run the example app to test your changes.

To start the packager:

yarn example start

To run the example app on Android:

yarn example dev-android

To run the example app on iOS:

yarn example ios

Usage

import {
  USBPrinter,
  NetPrinter,
  BLEPrinter,
} from "react-native-thermal-receipt-printer";
 
USBPrinter.printText("<C>sample text</C>");
USBPrinter.printBill("<C>sample bill</C>");

Example

USBPrinter (only support android)

interface IUSBPrinter {
  device_name: string;

  const [printers, setPrinters] = useState([]);
  const [currentPrinter, setCurrentPrinter] = useState();
 
  useEffect = () => {
    if(Platform.OS == 'android'){
      USBPrinter.init().then(()=> {
        //list printers
        USBPrinter.getDeviceList().then(setPrinters);
      })
    }
  }
 
  const _connectPrinter = (printer) => USBPrinter.connectPrinter(printer.vendorID, printer.productId).then(() => setCurrentPrinter(printer))
 
  const printTextTest = () => {
    currentPrinter && USBPrinter.printText("<C>sample text</C>\n");
  }
 
  const printBillTest = () => {
