Cordova check if file in url exists

Apache Cordova




Update: Works on iOS too.


function checkIfFileExists(path){
    // path is the full absolute path to the file.
    window.resolveLocalFileSystemURL(path, fileExists, fileDoesNotExist);
function fileExists(fileEntry){
    alert("File " + fileEntry.fullPath + " exists!");
function fileDoesNotExist(){
    alert("file does not exist");

Found the solution here.

Works on Android. Will test on iOS and update this answer.
