Efficiency of base64 encoding for images

Hello all,

I wanted to inquire about the efficiency of base64 encoding of images in the web appbuilder config.json file.  I can definitely see the advantage of encoding the image in the json file in some deployment scenarios, but I'm questioning the use of it when the app is running on our own servers/infrastructure.

 

IOW, is using the base64 encoding of images in my config.json file going to be more efficient, or perform better, than simply referencing the local image files?


Thanks,
Warren M
