    Cordova & Ionic plugin for PhotoEditor SDK

    Getting started

    Add PhotoEditor SDK plugin to your project as follows:

    cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-photoeditorsdk


    From version 3.0.0 the plugin uses AndroidX. To enable AndroidX in your application please adjust your config.xml:

    <platform name="android">
    +    <preference name="AndroidXEnabled" value="true" />

    If your application is using legacy Android Support Libraries you can use the cordova-plugin-androidx-adapter which will migrate the legacy libraries to work with AndroidX.

    Kotlin Version

    If you are using cordova-android version 10.0+, you might need to adjust the Kotlin version of your application in your config.xml, if your current Kotlin version is not compatible with our plugin:

    <platform name="android">
    +    <preference name="GradlePluginKotlinVersion" value="1.4.10" />

    Module Configuration

    You can configure the modules used for the PhotoEditor SDK for Android by opening imglyConfig.gradle and removing / commenting out the modules you do not need. This will also reduce the size of your application.

    Because PhotoEditor SDK for Android with all its modules is quite large, there is a high chance that you will need to enable Multidex for your project as follows:

    cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-enable-multidex


    Each platform requires a separate license file. Unlock PhotoEditor SDK with a single line of code for both platforms via platform-specific file extensions.

    Rename your license files:

    • Android license:
    • iOS license: ANY_NAME.ios

    Pass the file path without the extension to the unlockWithLicense function to unlock both iOS and Android:


    Open the editor with an image:


    Please see the code documentation for more details and additional customization and configuration options.

    Notes for Ionic framework

    • Add this line above your class to be able to use PESDK.
      declare var PESDK;
    • Ionic will generate a www folder that will contain your compiled code and your assets. In order to pass resources to PhotoEditor SDK you need to use this folder.


    Please see our example project which demonstrates how to use the Cordova plugin for PhotoEditor SDK.
