Kenny Katzgrau's Blog: Video: How GetSparks.org Uses CodeIgniter Sparks
In a new recent to his CodeFury blog Kenny Katzgrau (a member of the GetSparks team) looks at how to use the GetSparks.org service to get "sparks" for your CodeIgniter installation and make working with third-party services and other tools not included with the framework simple.
If you aren't already familiar, a package manager and repository for CodeIgniter libraries was released last week at GetSparks.org. In the few days between then and now, some very interesting and useful packages have been submitted. There's one for combining, minifying and caching assets, one for database scaffolding, viewing logs, geocoding, template-ing, etc.
