Free Preview: Use the Camera With Ionic



Ionic is a cross-platform mobile framework that allows you to develop for Android and iOS using just HTML and JavaScript. Thanks to the inclusion of Cordova, we have access to numerous plugins to extend the functionality of our apps. For example, we can access the device camera with the Cordova camera plugin. In addition to acquiring images, the camera plugin allows access to the phone's photo and video library.

In this Coffee Break Course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Reggie Dawson will show you how to use the camera plugin to take pictures and video, as well as how to access your device's image library.

This is the first course in a series on accessing device functionality with Ionic and Cordova. You may also be interested in:
