Description

Very simple web browser that supports an initial subset of the web bluetooth javascript APIs, with bookmarks and console log viewing support.

*** New in 1.4 ***

- support for the getPrimaryServices() API call

*** New in 1.3 ***

- Dark mode
- Geolocation web API support

*** Overview ***

Using this app you can navigate to a site written in javascript that can interact with your bluetooth (low energy) devices. This allows you to write your applications for use with devices such as puck.js in a language you are more familiar with (i.e. javascript) and be able to use it from your iOS device.

Use the built-in console viewer to debug issues when running your site on WebBLE.

Security is important for bluetooth device access, and so only sites that use https are supported, and it is not possible to connect to a bluetooth device without permission being granted by the user.

Initially the following key APIs are supported:

- bluetooth.requestDevice()

- BluetoothDevice.gatt
- BluetoothDevice.addEventListener('gattserverdisconnected', cb)

- BluetoothRemoteGATTServer.connect()
- BluetoothRemoteGATTServer.disconnect()
- BluetoothRemoteGATTServer.getPrimaryService()

- BluetoothRemoteGATTService.getCharacteristic()

- BluetoothRemoteGATTCharacteristic.writeValue()
- BluetoothRemoteGATTCharacteristic.readValue()
- BluetoothRemoteGATTCharacteristic.startNotifications()
- BluetoothRemoteGATTCharacteristic.stopNotifications()
- BluetoothRemoteGATTCharacteristic.addEventListener("characteristicvaluechanged", cb)

What’s New

Version 1.4.0

Features:

Support for the getPrimaryServices() method on device.gatt

Bug fixes:

- Issue 28: device disconnected unexpectedly on passing a TypedArray view on a very large ArrayBuffer (caused by ignoring the limits from the TypeArray view).
- fixes a potential crash when a navigation occurrs (including a refresh) while the bluetooth device picker is visible

No Bluetooth LE scanning support

Works for other basic examples except for scanning for devices. Is there any way or future plans to add support for navigator.bluetooth.requestLEScan?

Just as advertised

Works as advertised, no fuss. Navigated to a web page is built that worked fine with Chrome on every platform except iOS, and immediately found my Bluetooth device, connected to it and triggered events.

Thanks for keeping this up to date until either Google or Apple officially support WebBLE.

Fantastic! Works with Crafty+

Fantastic app and works properly with Crafty+ with no issues. Just download - run and type the web app address in the URL. Thank you for making this! (Come on Apple support the standard already.)
