Subject Re: File API as implemented by cordova-plugins-file
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 19:15:49 GMT
To help me write the file plugin for FirefoxOS I wrote a test app[1]. I wrote it based on the
HTML5 rocks post. I was hoping to integrate some of this into mobile-spec or whatever is our
next testing framework. 

Hope it helps,

I've been working on fixing those the file API tests, I have filled several
bugs at JIRA, about some issues with the native side as well. At the end I
have just 14 tests failing (fixing the issues just 5). I'll deliver the
fixes for mobilespec at night.

Totally agree, some changes for other platforms breaks functionality, I was
having more than 60 failing tests before the fix in the issue CB-6980,
cause by the changes in CB-6525 that provides only solution for iOS and
