File Transfer Plugin lets you download and upload files in your mobile app. The plugin provides advanced file transfer that runs in the background, and continues even when the user closes or suspends the app.
File Transfer Plugin also has a progress update for transfers that take longer, for example video, music, and large images.
To use the plugin, do the following:
Install File Transfer Plugin from Forge to your environment.
Add the plugin actions to the app. In Service Studio, go to Manage Dependencies (Ctrl+Q), search for FileTransferPlugin and select actions you want to use.
After you reference the File Plugin, you can use the actions and events to create your logic.
Install File Sample App from Forge and open the app in Service Studio. The sample app contains logic for common use cases, which you can examine and recreate in your apps.
The File Transfer Plugin uses a Cordova plugin, and for more information check cordova-plugin-file-transfer.
