Near P2P v2.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-05-04 // about 4 years ago
  • Kotlin Migration

    Extremely helpful for Kotlin applications and almost no change for Java apps

    โž• Added ConnectivityOberver

    ๐Ÿ—„ Necessary because ConnectivityManager.CONNECTIVITY_ACTION is deprecated

    โž• Additional Features

    โž• Added the possibility to set the port for UDP and TCP, so you can find e.g. only devices that use the same port

    Filters can be added to e.g. only find devices that contain a certain string

    val nearDiscovery = NearDiscovery.Builder() .setContext(this) .setDiscoverableTimeoutMillis(DISCOVERABLE\_TIMEOUT\_MILLIS) .setDiscoveryTimeoutMillis(DISCOVERY\_TIMEOUT\_MILLIS) .setDiscoverablePingIntervalMillis(DISCOVERABLE\_PING\_INTERVAL\_MILLIS) .setDiscoveryListener(getNearDiscoveryListener(), Looper.getMainLooper()) .setPort(8989) // optional.setFilter(Regex("filter")) //
    nearDiscovery.makeDiscoverable("hostName", "filter" /\* optional \*/)

    This will listen on Port 8989 and will show only Hosts specified the filterText "filter"

    • If you set a Filter on nearDiscovery but not setting a filterText, the Host will not be found
    • The other way around neither
    • If you don't specify a filter and filterText then all Hosts will be found


    ๐Ÿš€ This release is entirely thanks to @DATL4G
