Device-detector-js is a precise user agent parser and device detector written in TypeScript, backed by the largest and most up-to-date open-source user agent database.

Device-detector-js will parse any user agent and detect the browser, operating system, device used (desktop, tablet, mobile, tv, cars, console, etc.), brand and model. Works with Node.js and in the browser.

This library is heavily tested and relies on over 10,000 tests to detect thousands of user agent strings, even from rare and obscure browsers and devices.

This is a javascript port of Matomo device-detector (3.12.6).

  • TypeScript support
  • Thoroughly tested


Getting Started


To use device-detector-js in your project, run:

npm install device-detector-js


ES2015 import:
import DeviceDetector from "device-detector-js";
TypeScript import:
import DeviceDetector = require("device-detector-js");

Example - user agent detection:

import DeviceDetector from "device-detector-js";

const deviceDetector = new DeviceDetector();
const userAgent = "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_13_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/69.0.3497.81 Safari/537.36";
const device = deviceDetector.parse(userAgent);



  "client": {
    "type": "browser",
    "name": "Chrome",
    "version": "69.0",
    "engine": "Blink",
    "engineVersion": ""
  "os": {
    "name": "Mac",
    "version": "10.13",
    "platform": ""
  "device": {
    "type": "desktop",
    "brand": "Apple",
    "model": ""
  "bot": null

Example - bot detection:

import BotDetector from "device-detector-js/dist/parsers/bot";

const botDetector = new BotDetector();
const userAgent = "Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/6.0 Mobile/10A5376e Safari/8536.25 (compatible; Googlebot-Mobile/2.1; +";
const bot = botDetector.parse(userAgent);

if (bot) {


  "name": "Googlebot",
  "category": "Search bot",
  "url": "",
  "producer": {
    "name": "Google Inc.",
    "url": ""

API Documentation

new DeviceDetector([options])

  • options <[Object]> Options object which might have the following properties:
    • skipBotDetection <[boolean]> If true, bot detection will completely be skipped (bots will be detected as regular devices). Defaults to false.
    • versionTruncation <[0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | null]> Passing null disables version truncation, so full versions will be returned. Defaults to 1, only minor versions will be returned (e.g. X.Y).


Type definitions are included in this library and exposed via:

import { DeviceDetectorResult, DeviceDetectorOptions } from "device-detector-js";

⚠️ Browser Environment

Even though this library can run in the browser, it is strongly advised against doing so, unless you are not concerned with performance. Keep in mind that using this library in browser-side code means sending around 432 KB of Regex rules and 144 KB of javascript (uncompressed and unminified), which may result in a poor user experience for people with a slow Internet connection.

You may experience inconsistencies when running this library in a browser environment, as some browsers like Safari do not yet support lookbehind syntax.

How to update to a newer version of matomo?

This library needs to be updated when matomo releases a new version of their library. Here's how to proceed:

  1. Pull the master branch from this repo
  2. Update the{version-number} to the latest version of matomo device detector in the package.json
  3. Run yarn fixtures to update to the latest fixtures. This will download new fixtures based on the version specified in the package.json
  4. Run yarn test and update the library if some tests are failing
  5. Open a PR

Why do tests fail after downloading new fixtures?

When matomo releases a new version, they usually add support for new brands. Those brands needs to be copied over to this file.
