Meteor Camera Package
Add it to your Meteor app with
meteor add mdg:camera. The api is super simple - there is only one function to call.
Prompt the user to take a photo with their device and get the picture as a Data URI in JPEG format.
options is an optional argument that is an Object with the following possible keys:
widthAn integer that specifies the minimum width of the returned photo.
heightAn integer that specifies the minimum height of the returned photo.
qualityA number from 0 to 100 specifying the desired quality of JPEG encoding.
callback is a required argument that is a function that takes two arguments:
errorA Meteor.Error with a platform-specific error message.
dataA base64-encoded data URI for the image taken by the camera. This parameter can be used directly in the 'src' attribute of an image tag.
Warning: In the iOS simulator, the device camera is not accessible so you will get an error that says "source type 1 not available." I'm working on a fallback for iOS that will use the photo library when the camera is not available, but for now just test in your web browser, a physical device, or the Android simulator.
