Getting started

Sample Project

If you prefer sample projects over documentation, check out our Docutain SDK Capacitor Sample on Github.

Docutain SDK Dependencies

The Docutain SDK for Capacitor is distributed through npm package.

Install the nuget package into your project.

npm install @docutain/capacitor-plugin-docutain-sdk

Android Manifest

Camera Permission

If you want to use the Document Scanner, declare the following permission in your AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA"/>
<uses-feature android:name=""/>

Runtime permission for camera is handled automatically by the Docutain SDK.

Memory settings

Your application will work with high-resolution images. To avoid OutOfMemoryError exceptions it is highly recommended to set android:largeHeap="true" in the <application> element of your AndroidManifest.xml file.

<application android:largeHeap="true" ...>

iOS Manifest

Camera Permission

If you want to use the document scanner, you need to specify the reason for requesting access to the camera as part of the NSCameraUsageDescription in the Info.plist. If you don't the app will crash.
