cordova-plugin-filepath

This plugin allows you to resolve the native filesystem path for Android content URIs and is based on code in the aFileChooser library.

Original inspiration from StackOverflow.

Installation

$ cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-filepath

Supported Platforms

  • Android

Usage

Once installed the plugin defines the window.FilePath object. To resolve a file path:

window.FilePath.resolveNativePath('content://...', successCallback, errorCallback);
successCallback

Returns the file:// file path.

errorCallback

Returns the following object:

{ code: <integer>, message: <string> }

Possible error codes are:

  • -1 - describes an invalid action
  • 0 - file:// path could not be resolved
  • 1 - the native path links to a cloud file (e.g: from Google Drive app)
