Get contents of HTML file located in /files


Having trouble getting the contents of an HTML file I stored in the files depot. Curl works:

<pre><code>~ ❯❯❯ curl -i -k 3 -X GET http://localhost:8080/rest/files/applications/cmapp/profile.html -H "X-DreamFactory-Application-Name: cmapp" -H "X-DreamFactory-Session-Token: anq0jjt0a6bv6u9ah51t3g8017"

curl: (7) Couldn’t connect to server
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

This is test data from the server.


But when trying with the iOS api I either get a nil response or “Cannot process response (-1017)”:

func _getProfileHTML() {
    var headerParams = Globals.kHeaderParams
    var session = self.userDefaults.objectForKey(kSessionKey) as! String
    var profileHTML: String!
    headerParams["X-DreamFactory-Session-Token"] = session
    println(">>> Inside Sub")
      method: "GET",
      queryParams: ["content" : "YES", "download" : "YES"],
      body: nil,
      headerParams: headerParams,
      contentType: Globals.kContentTypeJSON,
      completionBlock: {(response: Dictionary!, error: NSError!) in
        if ((error) != nil) {
          profileHTML = "Failed Profile get inside getProfile Block"
          println("error: \(error)")
          self.htmlDelegate?.profileHTMLReturnedWith(profileHTML + ": " + error.localizedDescription)
        else {
          println(">> DB Session Response: \(response)")
          profileHTML = "Got Through"


You can get the file contents in base64 like this:

GET /rest/files/applications/myapp/index.html?include_properties=true&content=true

The response will look like this:

	"path": "applications/myapp/index.html",
	"name": "index.html",
	"content_type": "text/html",
	"last_modified": "Mon, 04 May 2015 18:49:31 GMT",
	"content_length": 10305,
	"content": "PGh0bWw+CjxoZWFkPgo8bWV0YSBjaGFyc2V0PSJ1dGYtOCI+C..."

You would then base64 decode response.content to get the raw HTML.
