npm version

Build Status

This Plugin is a wrap around Nathanael's nativescript-permissions plugin, while providing IOS Permissions with a matching API.

Installation

Describe your plugin installation steps. Ideally it would be something like:

tns plugin add nativescript-advanced-permissions

Usage

Right now to request the Camera Permissions, we use it like this

    
import { hasCameraPermission, requestCameraPermission } from 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/camera';

// also supports 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/files';
// also supports 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/calendar';
// also supports 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/location';


if( !hasCameraPermission() ) {
requestCameraPermission().then((hasPermission) => {
if( hasPermission ) {
// do something cool
} else {
// don't do something
}
});
}

API

this plugin has been split into smaller 'sub-modules', which when use give access to the specified permissions.

the sub-modules that we currently include are : files, calendar, location, camera

and for each sub-module we follow the same naming convention: requestXPermission/hasXPermission where x is the capitalised sub-module name.

Camera Module

Usage

    import { hasCameraPermission, requestCameraPermission } from 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/camera';

if( !hasCameraPermission() ) {
requestCameraPermission().then((hasPermission) => {
if( hasPermission ) {
// do something cool
} else {
// don't do something
}
});
}

API

Function Return Type Description
hasCameraPermission() boolean returns whether or not the application has the permissions to use the camera
requestCameraPermission() Promise requests the user to allow Camera Permissions, returns a truthy promise if they do, and returns falsy if they don't

Location Module

Usage

    import { goToAppSettings } from 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/core';
import { hasLocationPermission, requestLocationPermission, isLocationEnabled } from 'nativescript-advanced-permissions/location';

if ( isLocationEnabled() ) {

if( !hasCameraPermission() ) {
requestCameraPermission().then((hasPermission) => {
if( hasPermission ) {
// do something cool
} else {
// don't do something
}
});
}

} else {
// tell the user to enable Location Services.
alert('Please Enable Location Settings...').then(() => goToAppSettings())
;
}
