@capacitor/motion

The Motion API tracks accelerometer and device orientation (compass heading, etc.)

Install

npm install @capacitor/motion
npx cap sync

Permissions

This plugin is currently implemented using Web APIs. Most browsers require permission before using this API. To request permission, prompt the user for permission on any user-initiated action (such as a button click):

import { Motion } from '@capacitor/motion';

myButton.addEventListener('click', async () => {
  try {
    await DeviceMotionEvent.requestPermission();
  } catch (e) {
    // Handle error
    return;
  }

  // Once the user approves, can start listening:
  Motion.addListener('accel', event => {
    console.log('Device motion event:', event);
  });
});

See the DeviceMotionEvent API to understand the data supplied in the ‘accel’ event.

AccelListenerEvent

Prop Type Description Since
acceleration Acceleration An object giving the acceleration of the device on the three axis X, Y and Z. Acceleration is expressed in m/s 1.0.0
accelerationIncludingGravity Acceleration An object giving the acceleration of the device on the three axis X, Y and Z with the effect of gravity. Acceleration is expressed in m/s 1.0.0
rotationRate RotationRate An object giving the rate of change of the device’s orientation on the three orientation axis alpha, beta and gamma. Rotation rate is expressed in degrees per seconds. 1.0.0
interval number A number representing the interval of time, in milliseconds, at which data is obtained from the device. 1.0.0

Acceleration

Prop Type Description Since
x number The amount of acceleration along the X axis. 1.0.0
y number The amount of acceleration along the Y axis. 1.0.0
z number The amount of acceleration along the Z axis. 1.0.0

RotationRate

Prop Type Description Since
alpha number The amount of rotation around the Z axis, in degrees per second. 1.0.0
beta number The amount of rotation around the X axis, in degrees per second. 1.0.0
gamma number The amount of rotation around the Y axis, in degrees per second. 1.0.0
