Whilst waiting for the local cloud, and kind of being a reinvent the wheel as a way of learning guy, I decided to write a proxy script to control my Spark from the web.
Now we all know its dead simple to write a proxy to e.g. tweet sensor readings, but how do you control the spark from the web, e.g. tweet “turn on relay 2” and make the spark do it?
The only way I can think of is to get the spark to poll a url listening for instructions, which seems pretty nasty - is that how the spark cloud works or does it do something cleverer?
