Read A File In A Cordova App

Posted By Weston Ganger

Heres how to read a file from a Cordova app such as a file upload or something. I will show you how to do it using plain javascript or using AngularJS 1.x because it has a weird file input quirks.

Plain Javascript / Cordova

.controller("MyCtrl", function($scope){
  $scope.readFile = function(files){
    var file = files[0];
    var reader = new FileReader();
    reader.onload = function(e) {
      // This gets called after using one of the read functions below

    // Option 1: Read as text

    // Option 2: Read as Data URL
