This plugin allows you to save the contents of an HTML canvas tag to the iOS Photo Library, or Android Gallery from your app.

See an example project using it here: https://github.com/devgeeks/Canvas2ImageDemo

Installation

For Cordova 3.0.x:

  1. To add this plugin just type: cordova plugin add https://github.com/devgeeks/Canvas2ImagePlugin.git or phonegap local plugin add https://github.com/devgeeks/Canvas2ImagePlugin.git
  2. To remove this plugin type: cordova plugin remove org.devgeeks.Canvas2ImagePlugin or phonegap local plugin remove org.devgeeks.Canvas2ImagePlugin

NOTE: For older versions of Cordova (You will probably have to use tag 0.2.0)

Usage:

Call the window.canvas2ImagePlugin.saveImageDataToLibrary() method using success and error callbacks and the id attribute or the element object of the canvas to save:

Example

<canvas id="myCanvas" width="165px" height="145px"></canvas>
function onDeviceReady()
{
    window.canvas2ImagePlugin.saveImageDataToLibrary(
        function(msg){
            console.log(msg);
        },
        function(err){
            console.log(err);
        },
        document.getElementById('myCanvas')
    );
}
