React-native-connectivity-status

A React Native module to check Bluetooth and Location status on Android and iOS.

Getting started

Add react-native-connectivity-status module to your project

$ yarn add react-native-connectivity-status

And link it

$ react-native link react-native-connectivity-status


Usage

Check Status

Interactively check Location Services and Bluetooth status

import ConnectivityManager from 'react-native-connectivity-status'

// Check if Location Services are enabled
const locationServicesAvailable = await ConnectivityManager.isLocationEnabled()

// Check Location permission
const locationPermission = await ConnectivityManager.isLocationPermissionGranted()
switch(locationPermission) {
    case "Location.Permission.Denied":
    	// ...
        break;
    case "Location.Permission.Granted.Always":
        // ...
        break;
    case "Location.Permission.Granted.WhenInUse":
	// ...
        break;
    default:
        // ...
}

// Check if Bluetooth is ON
const bluetoothIsOn = await ConnectivityManager.isBluetoothEnabled()

Note: On Android, Location permission state will map on Location.Permission.Denied and Location.Permission.Granted.Always only.

Subscribe to updates

import ConnectivityManager from 'react-native-connectivity-status'

const connectivityStatusSubscription = ConnectivityManager.addStatusListener(({ eventType, status }) => {
	switch (eventType) {
		case 'bluetooth':
					console.log(`Bluetooth is ${status ? 'ON' : 'OFF'}`)
				break
		case 'location':
					console.log(`Location Services are ${status ? 'AVAILABLE' : 'NOT available'}`)
				break
	}
})
...
// Remeber to unsubscribe from connectivity status events
connectivityStatusSubscription.remove()

Enable services

NOTE: Due to possible app rejection from Apple (caused by illegal usage of private URL Scheme "prefs:root" or "App-Prefs:root"), methods for enabling bluetooth and location services have been removed from this module.
