ndef

pub version Test

ndef is a Dart library to decode & encode NDEF records, supporting multiple types including (grouped by Type Name Format):

  • NFC Well Known
    • Text
    • URI with well-known prefix
    • Digital signature
    • Smart poster
    • Connection handover
  • Media (MIME data)
    • Bluetooth easy pairing / Bluetooth low energy
    • other MIME data
  • Absolute URI

This library is still under active development and subject to breaking API changes and malfunction. Pull requests and issues are most welcomed.

Usage

import 'package:ndef/ndef.dart' as ndef;

// encoding
var uriRecord = new ndef.UriRecord.fromString("https://github.com/nfcim/ndef");
var textRecord = new ndef.TextRecord(text: "Hello");
var encodedUriRecord = uriRecord.encode().toHexString(); /// encode a single record, and use our extension method on [Uint8List]
var encodedAllRecords = ndef.encodeNdefMessage([uriRecord, textRecord]).toHexString(); // encode several records as a message

// decoding
var encodedTextRecord = "d1010f5402656e48656c6c6f20576f726c6421";
var decodedRecords = ndef.decodeRawNdefMessage(encodedTextRecord.toBytes());
assert(decodedRecords.length == 1);
if (decodedRecords[0] is ndef.TextRecord) {
  assert(decodeRecords[0].text == "Hello");
}  else {
  // no we will not reach here
}

// data-binding (by implementing payload as dynamic getter / setter)
var origPayload = uriRecord.payload!;
print(origPayload.toHexString());
uriRecord.content = "github.com/nfcim/flutter_nfc_kit";
print(uriRecord.payload!.toHexString()); // changed
uriRecord.payload = origPayload;
print(uriRecord.content); // changed back

// decoding by providing parts of a record
var partiallyDecodedUrlRecord = ndef.decodePartialNdefMessage(ndef.TypeNameFormat.nfcWellKnown, utf8.encode("U"), origPayload, id: Uint8List.fromList([0x1, 0x2]));

See example code for a more complete example. Null-safety support is added from version 0.3.0.
