[File Viewer Plugin] File Viewer in PWA App
Forge component by OutSystems R&D
Application Type

Dear All,

We have developed an app which I preferably would like to distribute via PWA. The only challenge I'm facing now is, that the user has the option to upload a file and should of course be able to see what he/she uploaded. In the "regular app" we used the File Viewer Plugin for it, but I had to learn now that this is not working with PWA. Am I right? Are there any options to still allow to view/preview a file from within a PWA application? Any ideas/thoughts?

Thanks and regards,


Hi Philipp Sauren

This component does not work with PWA because it needs Cordova to work properly and the browser does not execute Cordova, only mobile apps.

So, as PWA basically is executing your app on browser, you can try this plugin from forge: https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/7092/reactive-web-previewer
