Firebase storage with SocialSharing plugin


#1

My images are stored in firebase storage. I have noticed that if I store the image in a folder, I am no longer able to use it with the SocialSharing plugin from ionic native.

Anyone has found any workaround on this?

whatsappShare() {

        let image = "https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/instagram-test-fe4a8.appspot.com/o/000.jpg?alt=media&token=64dd92cd-27c2-4c36-9c1d-2ab376ffd16c"  //This is working
	//let image = "https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/instagram-test-fe4a8.appspot.com/o/test%2F000.jpg?alt=media&token=2bc49648-cf1c-41fe-8e1f-071d54f56402"  //This is failing because stored in test/ folder

        //shareViaWhatsApp(message, image, url) 
        SocialSharing.shareViaWhatsApp("Checkout this picture!", image, "lycos.com/")
            .then( () => {
                    alert("WhatsApp Success");
                }, () => {
                    alert("WhatsApp failed")
                })
    }

There are several github issues already open on this:
