Get files from SharePoint document library using REST API

Sometimes we need to read files in particular folder in SharePoint, we can achieve this using REST.

My Business Case : I got the requirement in angularjs form to attach documents, so rather than attaching in list item itself, i used document library to attach files and then read it in edit and display form using unique id.

Usage : var filenames = getFolderFiles("foldername");

function getFolderFiles(foldername) {
var attachments = [];
url: SiteURL + "/_api/web/getfolderbyserverrelativeurl('/SiteCol1/Site1/Library1/" + foldername + "\')/files",
method: "GET",
async: false,
headers: {
"Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose"
success: function(data) {
var files = data.d.results;
for (i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {
// + foldername, "_blank")
error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
//handle error...
return attachments;
