Subject Re: remote platform

Hi Dave,

Nice to know its not such a useless approach ;)

I dont get how this could fit with ripple : some real data from device,
some fakes ?
Or maybe the device could "feed" the ripple interface in realtime ?

Another thing to think about, maybe the "remote" cordova platform could
also be used (in the mid term) to control remote phones, not only for my
debug purposes. (think remote control, video games maybe...)

dnode looks like an awesome lib to transfer JS calls transparently from one
device or browser to another. I have some tests to do with it.

So if we have a "remote" cordova platform, it could be plugged into ripple,
but also maybe as a standalone 'remote' device.

Id love to have some feedback/vision from the cordova/phonegap/ripple team
on these ideas :)

PS: about the picture, i got the base64 back in the callback and worked
nice. I plan to add a "file" proxy so we can emulate file access...
