friendlyGamepadName() function

Return a human-readable name for the given gamepad object.

This attempts to return an accurate string based on the Bluetooth vendor and product ID, on browsers that put this data in Gamepad.id. On other browsers, or if the vendor and product ID are unrecognized, it will simply return a heuristically cleaned-up version of the Gamepad.id string.

export declare function friendlyGamepadName(gamepad: Gamepad, customMapping?: Record<string, Record<string, string>>): string;
