Customizable Attributes

WebAR SDK comes with a new Customization API. The following are the list of customizable attributes that can be incorporated into your AR experiences:

1. Customize Blippar Defined Style and Logo Image

  • Add the following attribute to the <script> tag of the WebAR SDK to change the style and logo image of the loading/warning(portrait) screens. These Blippar defined styles can also be overridden by the developers and show a custom html div overlaid on top and hide it when startGuideViewCallback is triggered in SetGuideViewCallbacks(startGuideViewCallback, SetGuideViewCallbacks)

  • The following API Payload can be triggered for enabling customization of the logo which includes defining logo dimensions, loader dimensions, background color etc.

<script src="../blippar/webar-sdk-v1.0.7-beta.min.js"
auto-start="false"
logo-src="images/test_logo_here.png"
logo-width="116px"
logo-height="116px"
progress-dot-ring-scale="2.5"
progress-dot-ring-color="#00AAFF"
progress-ring-scale="3"
progress-ring-color="#00FFFF"
progress-ring-line-width="2"
ui-background-color="#283747"

2. Display Customized UI for Surface Tracking Experience

  • If auto-start attribute is set to "false" in the SDK script tag, the developer can display custom UI for a brief period before starting the Surface Tracking experience.

  • User can start the the Surface Tracking experience by calling the following API.

WEBARSDK.Start();

3. Hand/phone Moving Guide Custom Animation

  • The hand/phone moving guide animation can be customized by the user:

  • Disable Default Guide: Set show-guide-view to "false".

  • When to make custom guide visible: show-guide-view

  • WEBARSDK.SetGuideViewCallbacks(startGuideViewCallback,stopGuideViewCallback)

  • Visible: startGuideViewCallback

  • Hide: stopGuideViewCallback

  • Trigger the Following API for customization

WEBARSDK.SetGuideViewCallbacks(
    startGuideViewCallback = ()=>{
      console.log("Start(ed) hand guide animation");
    },
    stopGuideViewCallback = ()=>{
      console.log("Stop(ped) hand guide animation");
    }
  );

The following image provides an overview of the customization. The hand-moving animation can be customized by using the above two API triggers.
