BangleJS GadgetBridge camera access

Posted on
  • My app (Authentiwatch) needs camera access to scan QR codes in the web interface.

    If I use all is good, the camera works after requesting and giving permission. However, if I use BangleJS GadgetBridge to manage my apps, it behaves as if the camera is blocked, without giving me any option to allow access.

    Can something be done about this?

  • Looking at the permissions granted to Gadgetbridge on my phone I don't think it requests, and therefore don't have, camera access.

    So the first step would be to add that permission to the ones Gadgetbridge requests. It's possible many of the maintainers is cautious of adding it in, but a start could be to open an issue, or do a PR over at the codeberg repository and see what feedback you get. One possibility is it could maybe be introduced to the Bangle.js flavor of the app and not the main one.
