Hello Facundo,

Happy to help you. 

Short answer, if you need to use com_users you will need to use the Joomla CMS. The framework is not an option you cannot run the users component in the framework, it's not build that way. See also my reply here on the different between the Joomla CMS and Framework: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/joomla-dev-framework/RINZRTwGrHo/1dKjJPddAQAJ

If you do not with to drag along all the Joomla functionality for your solution you could consider using our Joomlatools Platform. (https://www.joomlatools.com/developer/platform/) The platform is a modern and slimmed down version of Joomla (based on 3.3 release). Fore more info see: https://www.joomlatools.com/developer/blog/2015/11/introducing-joomlatools-platform/

Finally, if you are not doing so, also check out our Joomlatools Vagrant Box for local Joomla development. Comes packed with tools to help you be more productive as a developer. You can find more info here: https://www.joomlatools.com/developer/tools/vagrant/

If you have more questions happy to assist!

Happy coding!

I need to do a 'component' this component uses Joomla! com_users to login and then connect a external db the use a form for sql updates.

In first time I install Joomla! and develop a custom component (not using fabrik because I cant do CroosDB JOINS) but i feel Im not doing the things the best way.

  1. I only use com_users for Joomla CMS
  2. I don't need any articles, modules, categories, templates, etc
  3. I don't need to install other any extensions

My app only uses com_users for login and connect then in other external db updates

My questions:

**Why i should use Joomla CMS if nothing (except com_users) is useful for me?

Can I use Joomla Framework and then "copy" com_users and use it?

I'm right when I say that my best option is to develop the "component" directly on Joomla Framework?**

I already install Joomla Framework (an hour ago) but i can't find enough documentation

Hope this question is for this section
