Subject: BlueZ/D-Bus: Interpretation of service classes and UUIDs
Date: Sat, 09 Nov 2019 01:50:59 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I have recently written a bluetooth package for Emacs using the BlueZ
D-Bus interface.  For the interpretation of device and service classes,
and other UUIDs, I hand-scraped the website, although much
of the information seems to be available somewhere in BlueZ, at least
on a source code/C library interface level, if not on D-Bus.

Have I overlooked any way to query BlueZ for a human-readable
interpretation of UUIDs etc. over D-Bus?

If not, could such an interface be implemented in BlueZ?  I think it
would be very useful if applications building on BlueZ could all offer
the same textual representation of UUIDs without each replicating the
same data over and over again.
