Load local file error



I cant load a local file because http is only allowed.

XMLHttpRequest cannot load file:///var/mobile/... Cross origin requests are only supported for HTTP.

How can i allow to load local files in an app? Thanks, David

Hi. Thanks for the example.

When i try your code I get again the following error:

[Error] XMLHttpRequest cannot load file:///var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/C500078F-1FD2-43EC-A418-BBF0686E9FBB/Library/Caches/d00a72956e898ba4b1f05bd995912e49/deea684712127650165f68d34ccf76af/folio/data.json. Cross origin requests are only supported for HTTP.

(anonymous function) (index.js:66)

It works in the Adobe preflight app, but not in our test app.




Hi David,

I've put together a simple example that shows how you can read JSON data from a local file:

GitHub - blefebvre/aemm-read-local-file: Example article that shows how you can read a local file on...

The file being read can be found here: aemm-read-local-file/data.json at master · blefebvre/aemm-read-local-file · GitHub

And the code which is reading it using an XHR is here: aemm-read-local-file/index.js at master · blefebvre/aemm-read-local-file · GitHub

When you run the app via either the aemm CLI or AEM Mobile Preflight, you will see the message from the file is displayed in the app:

Hope this helps.
