Is there a way to import @capacitore/core into an angularJS controller?

import {Plugins, CameraResultType} from '@capacitor/core';         <===============

angular.module('settings.ctrl', ['mn']);
  .controller('settingsCtrl', function (

I am trying to use the Camera API built into @capacitor/core, but no matter how I try and import the API, I continue to get the same error:

I’m new to AngularJS and using Capacitor as well, so I am curious if there actually is any way of doing this, or if they just aren’t compatible together in this way. Any help or lead would be nice.

UPDATE: I have tried using browserify per The only issue with this is that it gives me the plugins (camera is the one I need) but the file generated does not contain CameraResultType anywhere in it, meaning I can’t get the data for the photo back and do anything with it.



So it turns out the the enum I was trying to get was nothing more than a string, so I was able to just hard code it in, rather than using CameraResultType.Uri

      try {
        // Take/Select Photo
        var image = await Camera.getPhoto({
          quality: 100,
          resultType: "uri"
        // imageURL contains path that can be set as img src
      } catch (e) {
        console.error('Error Getting Photo: ', e);
