I'm building an Ubuntu app in HTML5, using the Ubuntu SDK. From what I can tell, I should be using contentHub to access music files in /home/Music/, however I can't make heads or tails of the API. (https://developer.ubuntu.com/api/apps/html5/sdk-15.04/ContentHub.ContentHub/)

How exactly would I go about importing the files, and how would I interact with them after I did so, if I, say, wanted to display a list of all of them?

I assume I'd import it using api.importContent( type, peer, transferOptions, onError, onSuccess ) , but I have no idea what an acceptable value for peer would be.


Here is a link to some code that I wrote that does exactly what I think you need:


This will leave any music files that the user picks in a Music directory in your apps's data directory.

  • Hey, thanks! I'll take a look, hopefully it will solve my lack-of-understanding/problems :) – Brian U Jan 26 '16 at 19:58
