A library to access system setting and change it easily

A library to access system setting and change it easily

react-native-system-setting

It provides some system setting APIs for you. Support iOS and Android both.

Support

  • Volume ( with listener)
  • Brightness
  • Wifi switch
  • Location
  • Bluetooth

Next

  • System info

Look like

I really want to show the .gif, while it has no difference with .jpg for some system limit.

I strongly recommend you to run the example in real device to see how it works.

react-native-system-setting

Install

Run npm i -S react-native-system-setting

Note: if your project was created by Create React Native App, you should Eject before link it.

iOS

Run react-native link to link this library.

Or add pod 'RCTSystemSetting', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-system-setting' in Podfile for Cocoapods.

If link does not work, you can do it manually.

Android

Run react-native link to link this library.

That's all.

If link does not work, you can do it manually. Just follow this way:

android/settings.gradle

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

android/app/build.gradle

dependencies {
   ...
   compile project(':react-native-system-setting')
}

MainApplication.java

On top, where imports are:

import com.ninty.system.setting.SystemSettingPackage;

Add the SystemSettingPackage class to your list of exported packages.

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

Usage

Common import

import SystemSetting from 'react-native-system-setting'

volume

//get the current volume
SystemSetting.getVolume().then((volume)=>{
    console.log('Current volume is ' + volume);
});

// change the volume
SystemSetting.setVolume(0.5);

// listen the volume changing if you need
const volumeListener = SystemSetting.addVolumeListener((data) => {
    const volume = data.value;
    console.log(volume);
});

//remove listener when you need it no more
SystemSetting.removeVolumeListener(volumeListener)       

setVolume can do more, more detail

brightness

//get the current brightness
SystemSetting.getBrightness().then((brightness)=>{
    console.log('Current brightness is ' + brightness);
});

//change the brightness & check permission
SystemSetting.setBrightnessForce(0.5).then((success)=>{
    !success && Alert.alert('Permission Deny', 'You have no permission changing settings',[
	   {'text': 'Ok', style: 'cancel'},
	   {'text': 'Open Setting', onPress:()=>SystemSetting.grantWriteSettingPremission()}
	])
});

// save the value of brightness and screen mode.
SystemSetting.saveBrightness();
// restore the brightness and screen mode. you can get the old brightness value.
SystemSetting.restoreBrightness().then((oldVal)=>{
    //if you need
})

// change app's brightness without any permission.
SystemSetting.setAppBrightness(0.5);
SystemSetting.getAppBrightness().then((brightness)=>{
    console.log('Current app brightness is ' + brightness);
})

Wifi

SystemSetting.isWifiEnabled().then((enable)=>{
    const state = enable ? 'On' : 'Off';
    console.log('Current wifi is ' + state);
})

SystemSetting.switchWifi(()=>{
    console.log('switch wifi successfully');
})

Location

SystemSetting.isLocationEnabled().then((enable)=>{
    const state = enable ? 'On' : 'Off';
    console.log('Current location is ' + state);
})

SystemSetting.switchLocation(()=>{
    console.log('switch location successfully');
})

Bluetooth

SystemSetting.isBluetoothEnabled().then((enable)=>{
    const state = enable ? 'On' : 'Off';
    console.log('Current bluetooth is ' + state);
})

SystemSetting.switchBluetooth(()=>{
    console.log('switch bluetooth successfully');
})

Airplane

SystemSetting.isAirplaneEnabled().then((enable)=>{
    const state = enable ? 'On' : 'Off';
    console.log('Current airplane is ' + state);
})

SystemSetting.switchAirplane(()=>{
    console.log('switch airplane successfully');
})

API

API

Run example

$ cd example/SystemSettingExample
$ npm install
// if android
$ react-native run-android
// else
$ react-native run-ios

Android permission

Remove permission

To simplify using, I have declared all permission in AndroidManifest.xml.

And you can delete the permission safely if it's useless for your app.

You can find the file in yourProject/node_modules/react-native-system-setting/android/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml. (Be sure that you have run npm install)

These permissions are transparent in iOS, so it's ok for iOS app.

Runtime permission for Android 6+

Change brightness and screen mode need android.permission.WRITE_SETTINGS which user can disable it in phone Setting. When you call setScreenMode(), setBrightness() or setBrightnessForce() , it will return false if the app has no permission, and you can call SystemSetting.grantWriteSettingPremission() to guide user to app setting page. see example

If you just want to change app's brightness, you can call setAppBrightness(val), and it doesn't require any permission. see API
