ion camera provides directive and service to integrate cordova camera plugin on your Ionic application.

Demo application

Getting Started

Feature:

  • File URI will give you an blob
  • Directive and Service that manages everything for you out of box.

Installation

Before you install this package make sure that you are having below package installed on your project.

ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-camera
npm install @ionic-native/camera

ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-ionic-webview
npm install @ionic-native/ionic-webview
npm install @indraraj26/ion-camera

And then include it in your module (see app.module.ts):

import { IonCameraModule } from '@indraraj26/ion-camera';
// ...

@NgModule({
imports: [
 IonCameraModule.forRoot()
// ...
]
// ...
})
export class AppModule {}

If you are going to use this in feature module then include it in your feat.module.ts to use appIonCamera directive

import { IonCameraModule } from '@indraraj26/ion-camera';
// ...

@NgModule({
imports: [
 IonCameraModule
// ...
]
// ...
})
export class FeatModule {}

export class HomePage {
constructor(private camera: Camera, private _httpClient: HttpClient) {}
    public showImage: string;

    config: IConfig = {
    	quality: 50,
    	destinationType: this.camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI,
    	encodingType: this.camera.EncodingType.JPEG,
    	mediaType: this.camera.MediaType.PICTURE,
    	sourceType: this.camera.PictureSourceType.CAMERA,
    };

    onCameraResult(event: any) {
    console.log('returns blob', event);
    this.showImage = event.filePath;
    const formData = new FormData();
    formData.append('fileKey', event.result)
    this._httpClient.post('url', formData).subscribe()
  }

}
