Subject [jira] [Reopened] (CB-12531) File not found when selecting from Google Drive folder
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2017 16:02:04 GMT


Pier Bover reopened CB-12531:

I'm narrowing this. I have encountered the error again.

I solved the issue in my previous post by using FileReader. But since that project didn't
use cordova-plugin-file it was using the browser's FileReader. And it works fine.

In my current project I need cordova-plugin-file and cordova-plugin-file-transfer which means
I'm not using the browser's FileTransfer but instead the implementation from cordova-plugin-file.

I know this because for example I can't use reader.addEventListener(), which is implemented
in the native version, but not on the one provided by cordova-plugin-file.

>From MDN:
As FileReader inherits from EventTarget, all those events can also be listened for by using
the addEventListener method.

So, there is something broken in cordova-plugin-file.

How can I use the browser's native FileTranfer in a project with cordova-plugin-file?

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug

>         Environment: android

> In Android, when using an <input type="file"> and selecting a file from the Drive
folder, and then trying to upload it with JS, produces a file not found error.
> Here is a project using the Firebase SDK that reproduces the error and more detailed
description of the problem:
> At first I thought the problem was in the Firebase SDK, but I replaced it with Filestack
and the problem persists. Also the Firebase support team reproduced the error and in their
opinion it is a problem with the Cordova app.
> When trying to upload a file to a website like using Chrome it works fine so
it could be related to some obscure permissions.
> Hopefully someone here will be able to rule out if it's an Android bug or some limitation
of Cordova.
