nativescript-epub-reader

NativeScript plugin to open and read ePub files natively.

Getting Started

  • npm install nativescript-epub-reader
  • For iOS Place your epub files in your App_Resources/iOS directory.
  • For Android, required absolute file path as parameter.
  • Import EpubReader in your page and open the file.

Android Permissions Required

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

AndroidManifest

Starting with Android 9.0 (API level 28), cleartext support is disabled by default.

{your-app-module}/res/xml/network_security_config.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<network-security-config>
    <domain-config cleartextTrafficPermitted="true">
        <domain includeSubdomains="true">127.0.0.1</domain>
        <domain includeSubdomains="true">localhost</domain>
    </domain-config>
</network-security-config>

Then add network_security_config.xml in your app module's AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest ...>
    ...
    <application android:networkSecurityConfig="@xml/network_security_config">
    ...
    </application>
</manifest>

Code Sample

import {Observable} from 'data/observable';
import { EpubReader } from 'nativescript-epub-reader';
import * as application from "tns-core-modules/application";

export class HelloWorldModel extends Observable {

  constructor() {
    super();
    let ePubReader = new EpubReader();
    if (application.android) {
        ePubReader.open('/storage/emulated/0/Download/Metamorphosis-jackson.epub');
    }else{
        ePubReader.open('book');
    }
  }
