Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10143) Local file:// url XmlHttpRequests are not allowed in WKWebViewEngine
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 20:59:00 GMT

Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-10143:
---------------------------------------

That plugin looks good and is an acceptable way to workaround this. Would be great if they
contributed it back to Cordova.

> mobile-spec failure in XMLHttpRequest.spec.4 is a known WKWebView issue, where CORS is
now respected and cannot load files from file:// urls, only http*:// urls are allowed.
> With CSP off to rule things out:
> XHR to yourself of course works, but doesn't really make sense for
> real-world use. XHR to a sibling file, parent file, or any child file
> results in the error ""Cross origin requests are only supported for
> HTTP”.
> To illustrate:
> {code}
>   |
> parent.xml
>   |
> www
>   |---- index.html (file currently loaded)
>   |---- sibling.xml
>   |---- child-folder
>   |       |---- child.xml
> {code}
> index.html is the currently loaded file in the WebView. From it, you
> can't load parent.xml, sibling.xml nor child.xml using XHR according
> to my tests.
> The workaround is implementing CB-10109
