Subject RE: Windows Phone binary bridge
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 15:15:39 GMT
Working on this...I just found out that current implementation via Array.apply(null, new Uint8Array(...))
doesn't work for big buffers (bigger than 150Kb) and could raise Maximum call stack size exceeded
error. So I'm looking on better/right way to do typed arrays conversion... will keep you updated.

Thx!
Sergey

I think Sergey should be able to squeeze this into his schedule. We were looking at fixing
plugin support and this could be a good way to start it.

FYI, you can buy a no contract Nokia 520 WP8 device for $120, and developing in the emulator
is more than sufficient for most tasks.

Sergey, do you got this?
