Subject [GitHub] cordova-plugin-contacts pull request: Do not return absolute path ...
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2015 18:27:18 GMT
Github user darkyen commented on the pull request:
    @cfjedimaster The platform you tested seems to be android, on windows phone you cannot
directly use absolute paths (for obvious reasons).
    Windows returns a file, get the absolute url out of the file, read it again(also messing
up with path is quite hectic on wp) using windows api (which already gave u the file), whereas
if we use blob urls they are the de-facto way to read media on filesystem, now the runtime
itself manages the reading of the file, the user can store the file if they want.
    Also a blob url is actually just a uuid, (its not data-url). Its actually smaller than
the absolute file path on windows phone. ;-)
