Pure Swift Bluetooth Stack for Linux

Does not require BlueZ, communicates directly with the Linux kernel and Bluetooth controller.

Usage

import Bluetooth
import BluetoothLinux

guard let hostController = BluetoothLinux.HostController.default
    else { fatalError("No Bluetooth adapters found") }
let uuid = UUID(rawValue: "E2C56DB5-DFFB-48D2-B060-D0F5A71096E0")!
let beacon = AppleBeacon(uuid: uuid, major: 1, minor: 1, rssi: -29)
do { try hostController.iBeacon(beacon) }
catch { print("Error enabling iBeacon: \(error)") }

Installation

Swift Package Manager

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    dependencies: [
        .package(
			url: "https://github.com/PureSwift/BluetoothLinux.git",
    		.branch("master")
    		)
        ]
)

Troubleshooting

Do not test in Parallels or VMware with the built in Bluetooth adapter found in Macs. You can, however, use VMWare or Parallels, with a Linux compatible Bluetooth LE USB adapter plugged in. VirtualBox will work with the builtin adapter on Macs.

For best results, test with Swift 5.1.5 on ARMv7 and a Linux-comptible Bluetooth dongle (e.g. CSR8510 A10).
