The hidraw interface
hidraw enables raw access to USB and Bluetooth Human Interface (hidraw) devices. This interface is restricted because it provides privileged access to hardware devices.
- Should specify a single path attribute:
path(slot): path to hidraw device node e.g. /dev/hidraw0
- Or three attributes:
usb-vendor(slot): integer representing the USB Vendor ID, must be in range 0 < vid <= 65535
usb-product(slot): integer representing the USB Product ID, must be in range 0 <= vid <= 65535
path(slot): path where a symlink will be created to the device e.g.
To use a hidraw device, the snap developer must add
plugs: [ hidraw ] to a snap’s snapcraft.yaml. The snap user can then access a specific hidraw device with an interface connection.
snap interface hidraw to see which hidraw devices are available on the system.
Once connected, the consuming snap can use the device via the path specified by the connected slot.
This is a snap interface. See Interface management and Supported interfaces for further details on how interfaces are used.
