Camera support for progressive web apps - Mendix Forum

Camera support for progressive web apps


For several hybrid apps we are looking to migrate to progressive web apps (PWA), because hybrid technology is deprecated.

The apps allow users to take a picture using the device camera. Currently Mendix does not offer any platform supported solution for this that works in progressive web apps, only in native and in hybrid. This means that we have to choose between using community supported components, develop something custom ourselves or move to native.

Taking a picture seems like basic and core PWA functionality to me. It will make PWA a much more desireable way to go and it will ease the pain of deprecating hybrid. Ive seen several request for this functionality on the mendix forum.

I find it logical that Mendix provides a platform supported solution for this.

I see a “take a picture” action in platform supported module “Web Actions”.

I haven't tried it yet, but it fits the description.


Any progress on realization of this idea? the quarter is nearly ending….
