Description

6 years ago
Follow up to 615597.  A few more spec changes.

Basically this first patch makes devicemotion work very much like the old mozOrientation event.  It also has a bunch of support to implement the other parts of the spec such as deviceorientation and the support classes for devicemotion.

I don't understand the reason for the alpha/beta/gamma => x/y/z shift - why do we want to go back to the old mozOrientationEvent behavior? The spec still uses alpha/beta/gamma I think?
(Assignee)

Comment 3

the spec has 3 parts.  the part that was implemented was deviceorientation.  it was getting the wrong data from most of the accelerometer implementations which basically send movement data (m/s).  The android one was changed such that it returned 'sorta' the right data for two of the axises.

So, basically this patch implements another part of the spec called devicemotion and *temporary* disables deviceorientation.  In a follow up patch, i will review the android sensor changes such that all accelerometers in gecko will return m/s data.

In other followups, i will implement an orientation service (if supported on the platform), which will return alpha/beta/gamma as defined by the spec.

The end result after this patch is that people can migrate from mozOrientationEvent -> devicemotion without too much pain.

Comment 4

Offline discussion summary:

1. We were receiving what amounts to accelerationPlusGravity, and inferred orientation from that.

2. We should output both orientation and motion events given that input. But, if we do get proper orientation info, we should not infer it from the accelerationPlusGravity, we should output the correct data directly.

3. The patch changes x/y/z into alpha/beta/gamma. But we will need both. In fact we will need more - x,y,z, alpha/beta/gamma, rotation changes, etc. So there are many 3-tuples of doubles here that interest us. Perhaps the ipc message should be a generic 3-tuple of doubles plus a type, for simplicity?

Use orientation data on Android

Here is a patch that uses the orientation data from Android, instead of inferring it from accelerometer data.

very cool... i think we want both (to support both devicemotion and deviceorientation).  thanks for the patch.  I will roll it into the rest of the changes I am working on (coming soon!)

Review of attachment 538608 [details] [diff] [review]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Overall looks good. Various minor nits.

Only substantial questions are

1. Why remove the hasNewListener, that was throttling duplicate values?
2. We should rename a lot. Can do it here or in a followup bug. Maybe makes sense to leave for a followup, and consider things carefully there.

Arguably in this function, all DeviceMotions should remain Accelerometers, since that is what they really are.

Perhaps nsDeviceMotionSystem should be renamed somehow. I am not sure how though. In any case, this and all other renaming things can be left for a followup I guess.

Comment 11

Alon and I discussed the naming throughout these changes.  Basically we needed a term that encompassed both orientation, rotation, and acceleration changes.  The least bad term I thought of was DeviceMotion.  Of course, it doesn't really apply to device orientation -- it is good enough.  Plus, this interface is gecko internal, so it probably doesn't matter in any case.


The question about mType -- mType is the kind of device motion.  See the nsIDeviceMotionData interface for the consts.


We also discussed why I removed mNewListener.  I do not think we want to filter anymore.  The Android API allows you to specify the frequency / accuracy.  I think we just want the change (if

Comment 27

Asa, correct - this is a platform change.

The value is that we'd have website compat with existing webkit implementations that support these device events.  I believe that iphone/ipad already support these events.

It also moves us from our somewhat broken implementation, to something that we want to support long term.

As for risk, I do not think that you will see anything.  I think any bustage will be from sites that used the old event and having migrated.

This is landed into Firefox 6, so target is mozilla6.
Target Milestone: mozilla7 → mozilla6
I've started documenting this and am going to start pasting in URLs. They're not done yet but I need to keep track of them for later review purposes, so here we go:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceMotionEvent
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceMotionEvent.acceleration
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceMotionEvent.accelerationIncludingGravity
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceMotionEvent.interval
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceMotionEvent.rotationRate

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/RotationRate
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/RotationRate.alpha
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/RotationRate.beta
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/RotationRate.gamma

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/Orientation_and_motion_data_explained

I'm working on the last one still, and once it's done, changes will percolate upward through all those others with cross-referencing helping to fill in some of the holes in the content. Then I'll work on DeviceOrientation, and once that's done, I'm going to put together an example and that should let me finish it all up.
More documents started:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceOrientationEvent
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceOrientationEvent.absolute
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceOrientationEvent.alpha
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceOrientationEvent.beta
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/DeviceOrientationEvent.gamma

More to come.
We really need to document the devicemotion thing and link to it from https://developer.mozilla.org/en/detecting_device_orientation and the like)...
