Several client-side storage options are available to web applications, but one area that's been lacking until now is file I/O—the ability to.
By default, origins are given a modest amount of temporary storage, meaning they can use temporary storage without special permissions or the browser prompting the user to take some action. Temporary storage is perfect for things like caching. As usage of the temporary pool approaches the limit for the pool as a whole 1 GB , least recently used data will be reclaimed. Persistent storage is just that, persistent. Data saved using this option is available on subsequent accesses to the same filesystem. Keep in mind, though, that even persistent data can be deleted manually by the user either through a browser settings page or through direct filesystem operations on the OS.
These will stay stored until either the website or the user deletes them explicitly. As permanent storage request explicit permission through the opening of a tooltip below the address bar, it is mandatory to call webkitRequestFileSystem separately:. The above example starts with asking the user for permission to store permanently using webkitPersistentStorage. Only after this has been done can we use webkitRequestFileSystem to allocate storage space.
This means, accessing files is only possible from the same website that created these files. This way you can be sure that no third parties will be able to scrape your files from somewhere. At the time being, it will only work with Chrome.
Our function SaveDatFileBro is now permitted access to the allocated storage and able to create files and folders and put content to them. Using the method getFile we access files or create them as needed:. I named this parameter localstorage.
Via localstorage. In addition to defining the file name we attach a so-called object literal via getFile. This literal contains one or more values telling its method what to do. The value create: A BLOB is a binary large object which is able to consist of random content such as text, images or other. To actually write contents to a file, the method getFile receives a third parameter as a function call.
This function carries the parameter DatFile. From here we call the method createWriter , which is responsible for filling the file with content. Now we write the BLOB to the file. To remove a file from the filesystem we would correspondingly use remove. Although deleting does not require any additional information, the method stills expects a function.
It can be left empty, though.
Corresponding to getFile for files, we will use getDirectory for folders. The concept is the same. We are able to create folders and delete them again:.
Our example creates the folder named demo. Afterwards you could create a file in that given folder like so:. Using the method moveTo allows you to move files from one folder to another. Then the method getDirectory defines the target directory and activates moveTo:. Besides moving files back and forth, moveTo is only there to rename files. To achieve this, call the method separately, i. As the created files and folders are stored to a protected area controlled by the browser, it is not possible to open them as usual by simple adding the file or folder names to the URL string.
Instead we have a separate protocol to read-access these elements. Using the specific string you can embed them to other documents or simply call them from the address bar:.
A URL for locally stored files always starts with filesystem: As temporary files are separated from permanent files, the URL string contains persistent for permanently stored and temporary for temporarily stored files. Created folders and files follow from there.
Check cookies or other information easily.
This needs to be manually enabled first. Go to chrome: From here you can enable FileSystem inspection. Keep in mind, that DevTools only shows folders and files created. It is not possible to edit them from here. The FileSystem-API enables the creation of web apps that are able to compete with local installations.
Think of web-based email clients of word processors in the cloud, any use case basically, where files need to be stored or at least cached. I've been trying to implement this code to save a small txt file but I can't get it to work. It is now possible to choose whether to store files in the internal file storage location, or using the previous logic, with a preference in your application's config.
To do this, add one of these two lines to config. If a preference tag is present, and is not one of these values, the application will not start. If your application has previously been shipped to users, using an older pre- 3. Switching the location to "Internal" would mean that existing users who upgrade their application may be unable to access their previously-stored files, depending on their device.
If your application is new, or has never previously stored files in the persistent filesystem, then the Internal setting is generally recommended. By default , your app has permission to write to cordova. However due to a limitation, when external storage is not mounted, it would ask for permission to write to cordova. Use one of the other cordova. Previous versions of the plugin only ever stored persistent files in the Documents directory.
This had the side-effect of making all of an application's files visible in iTunes, which was often unintended, especially for applications which handle lots of small files, rather than producing complete documents for export, which is the intended purpose of the directory. It is now possible to choose whether to store files in the documents or library directory, with a preference in your application's config.
If your application has previously been shipped to users, using an older pre- 1. Switching the location to Library would mean that existing users who upgrade their application would be unable to access their previously-stored files. If your application is new, or has never previously stored files in the persistent filesystem, then the Library setting is generally recommended. Browser Quirks Common quirks and remarks Each browser uses its own sandboxed filesystem.
All browsers use forward slash as directory separator in a path. Directory entries have to be created successively. For example, the call fs.
The plugin requests user permission to use persistent storage at the application first start. Blob and File' close function is not supported. FileSaver and BlobBuilder are not supported by this plugin and don't have stubs. The plugin does not support requestAllFileSystems. This function is also missing in the specifications. Entries in directory will not be removed if you use create: true flag for existing directory.
Files created via constructor are not supported.
