i am a newbi and my English is not good. I want to convert a file to base64 then i upload it to the server. I have done like instruction on Base64 encode audio file for the web but the endcoding is not true and i can’t open the file. please tell me about your solution. thank you!
Are you encoding audio files or images?
To encode an image, first import enums:
const enums = require("ui/enums");
then convert the image:
const imageAsBase64 = image.toBase64String(enums.ImageFormat.png);
i want endcode all type of files: png, jpg, pdf, txt …
I don’t think there is a built-in api to encode any file into Base64 string but basically it will be just a line of code. As your original question talks about audio files, here I have a demo that downloads a random mp3 file from internet and encodes it into base64 format then play same in WebView to verify it is encoded properly.
i not only want endcode audio files but also encode pdf, doc, txt …
The code should be same for encoding any file
const base64String = android.util.Base64.encodeToString(file.readSync(), android.util.Base64.NO_WRAP);
thank you for your solution
is there anyway to make this work on IOS ?
NativeScript let you access any native api, so writing iOS version should not be a big deal.
i will appreciate it if you could give me an example, i am kinda new to nativescript
For iOS is should be
file.readSync().base64EncodedStringWithOptions(0), find update Playground example below.
