Android share and send functionality


I know that this was brought up a year ago… but is there any progress, or planning, around expanding the ability on Android to send files to Joplin? I’d like to send images, Camscanner documents, and other files directly from those apps into Joplin.

Thanks -



It looks like this kind of functionality isn’t very far off. Joplin currently uses a library to handle sharing on android (because this is difficult task). That library had some issues which meant sharing image, pdf, etc. wasn’t working correctly. But it looks like the project has new maintainers now that are dedicated to getting this working, so we might not have to wait much longer to get this functionality :slight_smile:

For reference



Is there a particular person I could follow up with?



Maybe one of the maintainers of react-native-share-extension? I’m the person who did the minimal integration but I don’t know enough to actually fix the bugs with this project.
