Good day. I’m currently using Capacitor and Vue.js to play around mobile development. I’ve researched for days now and unfortunately I can’t any Capacitor plugin that I can use to browse for files, specifically for Android. Do you have any ideas where I can find one? My last option is to use a Cordova file browser as I came from Cordova world and is switching to Capacitor. But if there Capacitor plugins out there that can help, it would be great. Thanks!
This will work specifically for Android - https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/file-chooser
Just follow the instructions for using a plugin in React - https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/community#react
npm install cordova-plugin-filechooser npm install @ionic-native/file-chooser ionic cap sync
Thanks for the quick reply! And also sorry for my late reply, seems that the system won’t allow me to send replies quickly, so I waited for 10 minutes before replying.
Anyway, I’m not using React though. I’m using Vue.js. Will it also work with Vue.js? If it is, I’ll give it a try tonight.
Yes the same approach will work, see my github repo or YouTube for specific examples.
Good day. I’ve been busy with work that I just tested the plugin today. Anyway, when I run the app, I encountered this error:
ERROR Failed to compile with 1 errors This dependency was not found: * @angular/core in ./src-capacitor/node_modules/@ionic-native/file-chooser/ngx/index.js To install it, you can run: npm install --save @angular/core
Do I really need to install
@angular/core even though I’m using Vue.js? I also checked your Github projects and YouTube tutorials but I can’t find anything related to the filechooser plugin. thanks
I did install it anyway to test and works like a charm! Thank you very much for your time and effort. Appreciated it
glad it worked out for you
Yeah. there are just warnings on
System.import() deprecation but well it’s just warnings. Btw is there any way i could use
cordova-plugin-filechooser without depending on
there should be, i dont run into that issue when using plugins in any of the other projects i use them in?
Can you show what your imports look like
It’s ok now. I’ve switched with this plugin -> https://github.com/codewaseem/capacitor-filepicker-plugin. They do the same thing but it’s way cleaner now that I don’t get any warnings and it does not require me to install the
I hope it would be of use for other users as well. Cheers!
