How to Cache Image Files with Ionic & Capacitor [v5]


If you want to implement caching inside your Ionic app and want to make sure your images are locally available as well, you can create a simple mechanism to make sure everything is cached automatically!

In this Quick Win we will create a custom image caching component that you can easily integrate into your own projects to automatically unlock caching for all the images you get from an API! If you want to combine it with general JSON caching from responses, also check out the previous tutorial on How to Cache API Responses with Ionic & Capacitor!


We don’t need any alternative packages as we can rely on the power and APIs of Capacitor for this one.

The full quick win with snippets is only available to Ionic Academy members.
