cordova-plugin-vibration

This plugin aligns with the W3C vibration specification http://www.w3.org/TR/vibration/

This plugin provides a way to vibrate the device.

This plugin defines global objects including navigator.vibrate.

Although in the global scope, they are not available until after the deviceready event.

document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);
function onDeviceReady() {
    console.log(navigator.vibrate);
}

Installation

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-vibration

Supported Platforms

navigator.vibrate

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Windows

The Android webview (API level 19 and up) supports the W3C Vibration API natively and therefore, the Android specific implementation of this plugin has been dropped.

vibrate

This function has three different functionalities based on parameters passed to it.

Standard vibrate

Vibrates the device for a given amount of time.

navigator.vibrate(time)

or

navigator.vibrate([time])

-time: Milliseconds to vibrate the device. (Number)

Example

// Vibrate for 3 seconds
navigator.vibrate(3000);

// Vibrate for 3 seconds
navigator.vibrate([3000]);

Android Quirks

Calls to navigator.vibrate will immediately return false if user hasn't tapped on the frame or any embedded frame yet. Please checkout https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-14022 for more information.

iOS Quirks

  • time: Ignores the specified time and vibrates for a pre-set amount of time.
navigator.vibrate(3000); // 3000 is ignored

Windows Quirks

  • time: Max time is 5000ms (5s) and min time is 1ms
navigator.vibrate(8000); // will be truncated to 5000

Vibrate with a pattern (Android and Windows only)

Vibrates the device with a given pattern

navigator.vibrate(pattern);
  • pattern: Sequence of durations (in milliseconds) for which to turn on or off the vibrator. (Array of Numbers)

Example

// Vibrate for 1 second
// Wait for 1 second
// Vibrate for 3 seconds
// Wait for 1 second
// Vibrate for 5 seconds
navigator.vibrate([1000, 1000, 3000, 1000, 5000]);

Cancel vibration (not supported in iOS)

Immediately cancels any currently running vibration.

navigator.vibrate(0)

or

navigator.vibrate([])

or

navigator.vibrate([0])

Passing in a parameter of 0, an empty array, or an array with one element of value 0 will cancel any vibrations.
