[Cordova] Tips: How to delete a file


Actually, it is very easy and simple because you can use the cordova-plugin-file

You can download the file plugin with command:

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-file

Demo code:

var path = "file:///storage/emulated/0";
var filename = "myfile.txt";

window.resolveLocalFileSystemURL(path, function(dir) {
	dir.getFile(filename, {create:false}, function(fileEntry) {
                  // The file has been removed succesfully
                  // Error deleting the file
                 // The file doesn't exist

Hope it is useful🙂
