How to Use Capacitor Share with Ionic [v5]


When you want to share the content of your app within Ionic you got multiple options, ranging from Cordova plugins to full web implementation – and today we will focus on the web and Capacitor to get the job done!

Within this Quick Win we will implement 3 different scenarios using the Capacitor share plugin and also an additional community plugin for sharing files.


Although there’s by now a general Web share API available – it’s support across different browsers and platforms is very limited at this time, to say the best.

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