writeFile

A file save utilities that (attempts to) work consistently across browser and node.

Usage

import {writeFile} from '@loaders.gl/core';
import {DracoWriter} from '@loaders.gl/draco';

await writeFile(url, DracoWriter);

Functions

writeFile(url : String [, options : Object]) : Promise.ArrayBuffer

Reads the raw data from a file asynchronously.

Notes:

  • Any path prefix set by setPathPrefix will be appended to relative urls.

writeFileSync(url : String [, options : Object]) : ArrayBuffer

Only works on Node.js or using data URLs.

Reads the raw data from a "file" synchronously.

Notes:

  • Any path prefix set by setPathPrefix will be appended to relative urls.

Remarks

  • The use of the loaders.gl writeFile and writeFileAsync functions is optional, loaders.gl loaders can be used with any data loaded via any mechanism the application prefers, e.g. fetch, XMLHttpRequest etc.
  • The "path prefix" support is intentended to be a simple mechanism to support certain work-arounds. It is intended to help e.g. in situations like getting test cases to load data from the right place, but was never intended to support general application use cases.
