Welcome!

This wiki will tell you everything you need to know about the Spark JavaScript library. First off it was written by Oliver Caldwell, a 16 year old web developer from England. Work started on Spark on the 22nd of October 2010 because of an idea that came to fruition while on the train home from work.

The majority of this wiki is used for future plans, current capabilities and examples of each function. I hope you like Spark and that it has helped you with your web projects.

Compatability

Spark has been tested and proven to work in

  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Opera
  • Internet Explorer 6+

If you ever encounter a problem, please file an issue so I can fix it.

Plugins

You create plugins by assigning functions to the SparkFn object and running the SparkIn function. You can access the returned elements from the Sizzle engine via this.elements. Here is an example plugin:

SparkFn.read = function() {
    alert(this.elements[0].innerHTML);
};
SparkIn();

You run it just like you would any other function, like so.

$('h1').read();
