I read a post today from a member of the Spark Team at Core HQ and it made me smile “SO BIG” it squeezed a thought out of my head; why not build an interface that is very common to a whole lot of people; Then I thought what’s already available and very popular; why Joomla of Course. Backend component; where users of Spark Core go to 'SparkTrol Command" to set variables for buttons, etc. and pick the library they are using.
Why ? Having a Joomla Component can get it listed in Joomla’s Extension Directory for exposure to millions of people each year.
Why ? Because a lot can be done with HTML/JAVA/PHP on the backend so a Spark Core can be more like, to coin a phrase, “PLUG N PLAY”.
Why ? Because although there may be 10 Billion Smart phones in this world, there are not 10 Billion Smart people.
Why ? If you have hardware + software + User Interface = Support Requests; Job Creation; and most importantly it can be an Open Source community supported project.
Why ? No one has thought of it yet as when I Google “Spark Core” +Joomla = Zero Results.
