Getting Started

Add dependencies to pubspec.yaml

dependencies:
	dgtusb: ^0.0.1
	usb_serial: ^0.2.4

include the package

import 'package:dgtusb/dgtusb.dart';
import 'package:usb_serial/usb_serial.dart';

add compileOptions to android\app\build.gradle

android {
    ...
    compileOptions {
        sourceCompatibility 1.8
        targetCompatibility 1.8
    }
    ...
}

you can do optional more steps to allow usb related features, for that please take a look at the package we depend on: usb_serial.

Connect to a connected board and listen to its events:

List<UsbDevice> devices = await UsbSerial.listDevices();
List<UsbDevice> dgtDevices = devices.where((d) => d.vid == 1115).toList();

if (dgtDevices.length > 0) {
    // connect to board and initialize
    DGTBoard nBoard = new DGTBoard(await dgtDevices[0].create());
    await nBoard.init();
    print("DGTBoard connected - SerialNumber: " + nBoard.getSerialNumber() + " Version: " + nBoard.getVersion());
    
    // listen to update stream
    nBoard.getBoardDetailedUpdateStream().listen((update) {
        print(update.getNotation());
    });

    // set board to update mode
    nBoard.setBoardToUpdateMode();
}

Updates soon

sorry for the lack of information, i will soon:

  • update this readme
  • add an example
  • add some tests maybe
  • make it crossplatform compatible (currently it depends on usb_serial package which makes it android exclusive. Linux, OSX and Windows should be possible aswell)
