BeaconKit Build Status Current Version

Beacon detection framework using CoreBluetooth written in Swift

TL;DR

This is a framework that wraps around CoreBluetooth and detects beacons of different types.

Tested to compile with Swift 4.0 & 4.2 for iOS 9.0 & macOS 10.12

The currently supported types are: Eddystone-UID, Eddystone-URL, AltBeacon, iBeacon.

iBeacon detection is only available for macOS. It's not possible to detect iBeacons using CoreBluetooth on iOS (see this explanation for more info).

Only foreground operation is supported, but I plan on adding background detection of Eddystones (it's not possible to detect AltBeacons in the background).

Usage

Activating:

BeaconScanner.shared.delegate = self
BeaconScanner.shared.start()

If you want to change the beacons detected, assign to recognizedBeaconTypes like so:

BeaconScanner.shared.recognizedBeaconTypes = [EddystoneUidBeacon.self, EddystoneUrlBeacon.self, AltBeacon.self] 

Deactivating:

BeaconScanner.shared.stop()

Supported Beacon Types

  • Eddystone-UID
  • Eddystone-URL
  • AltBeacon (foreground only on iOS)
  • iBeacon (macOS only)

Known Unsupported Beacon Types

  • Eddystone-TLM (not an actual beacon)
