In this article, we are continuing our exploration of the Cordova APIs. On this page, we’ll explore the Camera and File APIs to get a photo onto the server. Here, we’ll learn how to upload the image to a server directory after shooting it.
This article requires that you have a server with PHP installed, are able to upload a file to it, and the server accepts uploads. My simple server has a CPanel interface that allowed me to do all of the above. (Don’t worry; I’m going to give you the steps for all of this.)
In this article, we are in part 4 of exploring the Cordova APIs, which started in https://iphonedevlog.wordpress.com/2014/01/31/adding-cordova-apis-to-android-via-cli-accelerometer-and-camera/ Refer to that article to set up your Cordova PhoneGap project files. You’ll want to follow the “Set Up the Android Project” section through step 9 inclusive. On this page, we’ll explore the File API from the perspective of getting our feet wet.
