Bangle.js emulator and events

Posted on
  • Is it possible to trigger an event in the emulator?

    (I'm playing with code - in a somewhat amateur fashion - until the Bangle.js 2 is shipped; I'm working up to a clock which shows seconds and date for a period when it's tapped, but otherwise only updates each minute).

  • That's a great idea!

    I've been playing a bit with an app as well recently, and I've been using the Bangle touch event successfully in the emulator for both v1 and v2 (if that's what you're asking about).

    'Is it possible to trigger an event'

    Respond to human input, or an event started from a timer interval?

  • Respond to human input - tap, twist etc.

    (@johan_m_o has mentioned the Touch event, which I can use as a proxy while developing. In real life I'd like it to be a tap as I understand the touch screen is likely to be locked until a button press.)

  • Thanks -- the touch event is something I can use in the emulator, and switch to a tap when the watch is actually here!

  • Tap and twist are probably not gonna work in the emulator no...

  • While not a perfect solution, a simulation of, say a twist event, could be pre-determined/coded such that either a Touch event or as an interval/timeout end occurs, that code block would then execute, emulating the physical event.­obal_setTimeout­obal_setInterval­tap­twist

  • Just a note that for the touch event:

    Bangle.on('touch', function(button, xy) { ... });

    You can fake it with:

    Bangle.emit('touch', button, xy);
