Cordova barometer plugin

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have a built in barometer. Use this plugin to read the atmospheric pressure and relative altitude.

Installation

cordova plugin add https://github.com/mulhoon/cordova-barometer

Usage

var barometer = navigator.barometer;

barometer.isAvailable(function(value){
    console.log("Barometer is available:" + value);
});

barometer.startUpdates(function(data){
    console.log(data);
    // data.relativeAltitude, data.pressure
    // this polls the barometer every second
});

barometer.stopUpdates();

So nest these up to get just one reading...

var barometer = navigator.barometer;

barometer.isAvailable(function(value){
    if(value){
        barometer.startUpdates(function(data){
            console.log(data);
            navigator.barometer.stopUpdates();
        });
    }else{
        console.log("No barometer available");
    }
});
