@ledgerhq/hw-transport

@ledgerhq/hw-transport implements the generic interface of a Ledger Hardware Wallet transport.

API

Table of Contents

Subscription

Type: {unsubscribe: function (): void}

Properties

  • unsubscribe function (): void

Device

Type: Object

DescriptorEvent

type: add or remove event descriptor: a parameter that can be passed to open(descriptor) deviceModel: device info on the model (is it a nano s, nano x, ...) device: transport specific device info

Type: {type: ("add" | "remove"), descriptor: Descriptor, deviceModel: DeviceModel??, device: Device?}

Properties

  • type ("add" | "remove")
  • descriptor Descriptor
  • deviceModel DeviceModel??
  • device Device?

Observer

Type: $ReadOnly<{next: function (event: Ev): any, error: function (e: any): any, complete: function (): any}>

Transport

Transport defines the generic interface to share between node/u2f impl A Descriptor is a parametric type that is up to be determined for the implementation. it can be for instance an ID, an file path, a URL,...

exchange

low level api to communicate with the device This method is for implementations to implement but should not be directly called. Instead, the recommanded way is to use send() method

Parameters
  • _apdu Buffer
  • apdu the data to send

Returns Promise<Buffer> a Promise of response data

setScrambleKey

set the "scramble key" for the next exchanges with the device. Each App can have a different scramble key and they internally will set it at instanciation.

Parameters
  • _key string
  • key the scramble key

close

close the exchange with the device.

Returns Promise<void> a Promise that ends when the transport is closed.

on

Listen to an event on an instance of transport. Transport implementation can have specific events. Here is the common events:

  • "disconnect" : triggered if Transport is disconnected
Parameters

off

Stop listening to an event on an instance of transport.

Parameters

setDebugMode

Enable or not logs of the binary exchange

setExchangeTimeout

Set a timeout (in milliseconds) for the exchange call. Only some transport might implement it. (e.g. U2F)

Parameters

setExchangeUnresponsiveTimeout

Define the delay before emitting "unresponsive" on an exchange that does not respond

Parameters

send

wrapper on top of exchange to simplify work of the implementation.

Parameters
  • cla number
  • ins number
  • p1 number
  • p2 number
  • data Buffer (optional, default Buffer.alloc(0))
  • statusList Array<number> is a list of accepted status code (shorts). [0x9000] by default (optional, default [StatusCodes.OK])

Returns Promise<Buffer> a Promise of response buffer

isSupported

Statically check if a transport is supported on the user's platform/browser.

Type: function (): Promise<boolean>

list

List once all available descriptors. For a better granularity, checkout listen().

Type: function (): Promise<Array<Descriptor>>

Examples
TransportFoo.list().then(descriptors => ...)

Returns any a promise of descriptors

listen

Listen all device events for a given Transport. The method takes an Obverver of DescriptorEvent and returns a Subscription (according to Observable paradigm https://github.com/tc39/proposal-observable ) a DescriptorEvent is a { descriptor, type } object. type can be "add" or "remove" and descriptor is a value you can pass to open(descriptor). each listen() call will first emit all potential device already connected and then will emit events can come over times, for instance if you plug a USB device after listen() or a bluetooth device become discoverable.

Type: function (observer: Observer<DescriptorEvent<Descriptor>>): Subscription

Parameters
  • observer is an object with a next, error and complete function (compatible with observer pattern)
Examples
const sub = TransportFoo.listen({
next: e => {
if (e.type==="add") {
sub.unsubscribe();
const transport = await TransportFoo.open(e.descriptor);
...
}
},
error: error => {},
complete: () => {}
})

Returns any a Subscription object on which you can .unsubscribe() to stop listening descriptors.

open

attempt to create a Transport instance with potentially a descriptor.

Type: function (descriptor: Descriptor, timeout: number): Promise<Transport<Descriptor>>

Parameters
  • descriptor : the descriptor to open the transport with.
  • timeout : an optional timeout
Examples
TransportFoo.open(descriptor).then(transport => ...)

Returns any a Promise of Transport instance

create

create() allows to open the first descriptor available or throw if there is none or if timeout is reached. This is a light helper, alternative to using listen() and open() (that you may need for any more advanced usecase)

Parameters
  • openTimeout number (optional, default 3000)
  • listenTimeout number?
Examples
TransportFoo.create().then(transport => ...)

Returns Promise<Transport<Descriptor>>

You can’t perform that action at this time.
