Access images or files from outside of the Meteor directory


#1

I am running a Meteor App. I am uploading my images and files outside of the Meteor directory, my question is how do I access those files inside my application? For example, I want to provide a url of profile image to one of my ios application, what would be the best approach to achieve this?

Depending level of usage for your app, you might not want to store the images on the same server that serves your site. Serving these types of assets takes a lot of resources from the app. Serving them from a dedicated service with a CDN is optimal. I’m a huge fan of Cloudinary for this reason.
