WifiWizard

Version 0.2.10

getCurrentBSSID now available on IOS.

Fixed callback issue with connectNetwork.

Updated permissions for Android Marshmallow.

Version 0.2.9

This Phonegap plugin enables WiFi management from within Phonegap applications.

iOS has limited functionality, as Apple's WifiManager equivalent is only available as a private API. Any app that used these features would not be allowed on the app store. The only function availabe for iOS is getCurrentSSID.

Installation

Master

Run phonegap plugin install https://github.com/parsonsmatt/WifiWizard.git. Please note that the plugin is in active development, and this will pull the most recent commits.

Releases

Run cordova plugin add wifiwizard. This will get the latest release of the plugin.

Usage from within Cordova/Phonegap:

WifiWizard.formatWifiConfig(SSID, password, algorithm);

Formats the wifi configuration information into a JSON for use with the addNetwork function. Currently, only WPA is supported for the algorithm value.

WifiWizard.formatWPAConfig(SSID, password);

Is a helper method. It returns an object which can be used to add a WPA wifi network.

WifiWizard.addNetwork(wifi, win, fail);

Adds the network to the list of available networks that the user can log into. wifi needs to be an object as formatted by formatWifiConfig. win and fail are callback functions to be executed based on the result of the call.

WifiWizard.removeNetwork(SSID, win, fail);

Removes the network with the given SSID. As above, win and fail are callback functions.

WifiWizard.connectNetwork(SSID, win, fail);

Connects the phone to the given Wifi network. Returns the value of the Supplicant State.

WifiWizard.disconnectNetwork(SSID, win, fail);

Disconnects the phone to the given Wifi network.

WifiWizard.listNetworks(listHandler, fail);

Retrieves a list of the configured networks as an array of strings and passes them to the function listHandler.

WifiWizard.startScan(success, fail);

Start WiFi scanning. success is a function that is called when the scan is started.

WifiWizard.getScanResults([options], listHandler, fail);

Retrieves a list of the available networks as an array of objects and passes them to the function listHandler. The format of the array is:

networks = [
    {   "level": signal_level, // raw RSSI value
        "SSID": ssid, // SSID as string, with escaped double quotes: "\"ssid name\""
        "BSSID": bssid // MAC address of WiFi router as string
        "frequency": frequency of the access point channel in MHz
        "capabilities": capabilities // Describes the authentication, key management, and encryption schemes supported by the access point.
    }
]

An options object may be passed. Currently, the only supported option is numLevels, and it has the following behavior:

  • if (n == true || n < 2), *.getScanResults({numLevels: n}) will return data as before, split in 5 levels;
  • if (n > 1), *.getScanResults({numLevels: n}) will calculate the signal level, split in n levels;
  • if (n == false), *.getScanResults({numLevels: n}) will use the raw signal level;

WifiWizard.getCurrentSSID(ssidHandler, fail);

Retrieves the current SSID and passes it to ssidHandler.

WifiWizard.isWifiEnabled(win, fail);

Retrieves the current wifi status and passes true or false to the handler.

WifiWizard.setWifiEnabled(enabled, win, fail);

Set wifi status. enabled is a Boolean type, so to disable the Wifi, you'd execute WifiWizard.setWifiEnabled(false, win, fail);

Changelog:

v0.2.9

isWifiEnabled bug fixed. level in getScanResults object now refers to raw RSSI value. The function now accepts an options object, and by specifiying { numLevels: value } you can get the old behavior.

v0.2.8

getScanResults now returns the BSSID along with the SSID and strength of the network.

v0.2.7

  • Clobber WifiWizard.js automatically via Cordova plugin architecture

v0.2.6

  • Added isWifiEnabled, setWifiEnabled

v0.2.5

  • Fixes getConnectedSSID error handlers

v0.2.4

  • Added getConnectedSSID method

v0.2.3

  • Added disconnect that does disconnection on current WiFi

v0.2.2

  • Added startScan and getScanResults

v0.2.1

  • Fixed reference problem in formatWPAConfig

v0.2.0

  • Changed format of wifiConfiguration object to allow more extensibility.

v0.1.1

  • addNetwork will now update the network if the SSID already exists.

v0.1.0

  • All functions now work!

v0.0.3

  • Fixed errors in native implementation. Currently, Add and Remove networks aren't working, but others are working as expected.

v0.0.2

  • Changed plugin.xml and WifiWizard.js to attach WifiWizard directly to the HTML.

v0.0.1

  • Initial commit
