    1.0.5 • Public • Published

    Description

    Library can get location of Wi-Fi access points.

    Library can use open and completely free Mylnikov service, 3WiFi and limited wigle.net (you need to regigter there) if you want to use it.

    Installation

    You can install it with this command:

    npm install locate_wifi
    

    Usage

    First require library:

    const wifi = require('locate_wifi');

    If you want to use OpenCellId, Mozilla Location Service or set custom socket timeout, you should initialize library before using:

    wifi.init({
        // API keys
        api_name : 'you should sign up on https://wigle.net/ to get this',
        api_token: 'you should sign up on https://wigle.net/ to get this',
        api_key  : 'you should sign up on https://3wifi.stascorp.com/ to get this',
     
        // socket timeout in milliseconds (default is 3000)
        'timeout': 3000
    });

    Then perform requests the following way:

    bssid = 'F8:3D:FF:BB:BA:29'; // can be in every form, i.e. 'F8:3DFF-bb:Ba 29'
     
    wifi.mylnikov(bssid)
        .then(coords => {
            console.log(`mylnikov:`);
            console.log(JSON.stringify(coords, null, 4));
        })
        .catch(err => {
            console.log(`mylnikov ERROR:`);
            console.log(err);
        });
     
    wifi.wigle(bssid)
        .then(coords => {
            console.log(`wigle:`);
            console.log(JSON.stringify(coords, null, 4));
        })
        .catch(err => {
            console.log(`wigle ERROR:`);
            console.log(err);
        });
     
    wifi['3wifi'](bssid)
        .then(coords => {
            console.log(`3wifi:`);
            console.log(JSON.stringify(coords, null, 4));
        })
        .catch(err => {
            console.log(`3wifi ERROR:`);
            console.log(err);
        });
     
     
    // result of every call will be like this:
    // {
    //    "lat"  : 59.31150685708,
    //    "lon"  : 18.07485943715,
    //    "ssid" : "Tele2Internet-F0029", // will be null in wifi.mylnikov()
    //    "range": 141                    // will be null in wifi.wigle() and wifi['3wifi']()
    // }
