Module: Toybox.Communications

Overview

The Communications Module provides tools for communication.

With the Communications module, widgets and apps will be able to communicate with a mobile phone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). The mobile phone may be sharing data with the device, or it may act as a bridge between the app and the Internet. This allows the device to become part of the Internet of Things.

using Toybox.System;

const CLIENT_ID = "myClientID";
const OAUTH_CODE = "myOAuthCode";
const OAUTH_ERROR = "myOAuthError";

// register a callback to capture results from OAuth requests

   // "responseCode" and "responseError" are the parameters passed
   // to the resultUrl. Check the oauth provider's documentation
   // to determine the correct strings to use.

Use Garmin Connect Mobile as a proxy to the web.

Web requests are asynchronous. The supplied response callback method will be called when the request returns.

Parameters:

  • url(Lang.String)

    The URL being requested

  • parameters(Lang.Dictionary)

    A Dictionary of keys and values.

    • These values should not be URL encoded.

    • Can be null.

  • options(Lang.Dictionary)

    A Dictionary of options.

    • :method(Lang.Number)

      The HTTP method of the request. This should be an HTTP_REQUEST_METHOD_* value.

    • :headers(Lang.Dictionary)

      A Dictionary of HTTP headers to include in the request.

      • The "Content-Type" header for the body of the request can be specified using a REQUEST_CONTENT_TYPE_* value.

      • If the content type is not specified, it will default to "application/json" for GET and DELETE requests, and will default to "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" for POST and PUT requests.

      • By default, DELETE requests will have their parameters appended to the URL.

      • Setting the method as DELETE as well as a "Content-Type" header will result in the parameters being set in the body of the request and they will not be appended to the URL.

      • GET requests can only have their parameters appended to the URL, specifying the "Content-Type" header will not set the body.

    • :responseType(Lang.Number)

      The format of the response.

      • This should be an HTTP_RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE_* value.

      • If HTTP_RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE_FIT or HTTP_RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE_GPX is given, the system will attempt to download and parse a FIT or GPX file and store the contained data in the device, based on the contents of the file.

      • If not given, the system will use the Content-Type header from the server response to determine the format of the response body. If the Content-Type header from the response is not one of the known HTTP_RESPONSE_CONTENT_TYPE_* types, an error will occur.

    • :context(Lang.Object)

      A user-specific context object to be passed to the response callback. The callback will need to accept a third parameter if this value is populated.

    • :mediaEncoding(Lang.Number)

      The encoding of the audio content that is being downloaded. Should be a Media.ENCODING_* value.

    • :maxBandwidth(Lang.Number)

  • responseCallback(Lang.Method)

    A reference to a callback method which must accept two arguments:

    • responseCode: The server response code or a BLE_* error type

    • data: Dictionary of content from a successful request

Example:

// It is common for developers to wrap a makeWebRequest() call in a function
// as displayed below. The function defines the variables for each of the
// necessary arguments in a Communications.makeWebRequest() call, then passes
// these variables as the arguments. This allows for a clean layout of your web
