Ionic File Transfer in Browser


In Ionic Docs for File Transfer it states that it supports Browsers. However when I implement it says it requires Cordova. Can someone confirm whether File Transfer works in progressive browsers or not?


It supports the cordova-browser platform.


Ionic cordova platform add browser

Ionic run browser

The latter will kick off a different webserver then ionic server

Then the browser will ask permission for file write which grants quotum


I would suggest (if you are starting) to drop the native file-transfer plugin and use Angular’s HttpClient instead

This plugin is getting deprecated


Thanks for the responses I ended up using native javascript and angular 2


please, say how and show us your code. thanks
