NativeScript Core

Using the Device Camera with NativeScript


Almost every mobile application needs the option to capture, save and share images. The NativeScript camera plugin was designed for the first two parts of the job (taking a picture and optionally saving to device storage).


Navigate to project folder and run NativeScript-CLI command

tns plugin add nativescript-camera

Plugin could be also added as a standard npm dependency running command

npm install nativescript-camera --save 

Note: the --save flag will add the plugin as dependency in your package.json file


For detailed information about plugin's usage, check the plugin's README in GitHub.
