Getting Started

Pick a file:

final _file = await openFile();

Select multiple files:

final _files = await openFiles();

Pick an image:

final _file = await pickImage();

Pick a video:

final _file = await pickVideo();

Once you have the FileX type you can read the data:

final _bytes = await _file.readAsBytes();
final _string = await _file.readAsString();

Creating a new file:

final _file = FileX('path/to/file/file.txt');
await _file.writeAsString('My New Data!');
final _output = await _file.readAsString();
print(_output); // 'My New Data!'
