Live Stream Series - Koding with the Kiwi + Friends - Next stream July 1st 2022

Gavin Pickin |  June 28, 2022

In this next session, Gavin will be joined by Daniel Garcia. Daniel has done a lot of work with APIs, testing them with Postman, using other tools like NGrok, and learning how to document APIs with OpenAPI Swagger Documentation. Daniel will discuss his approach, and how we released a module to make API documentation viewing easier, the Swagger UI module on ForgeBox. They will document a few endpoints, look at the swagger.json generated, and see how that looks in the Swagger UI module.

In our last session, Gavin, Sam and David talked about Quick, qb, some tricks. Sam shared the story of their journey towards quick. Gavin made a fool of himself... but that didn't stop him from showing off some other tips. Find out more and how to watch last weeks stream.

Online CF Meeting Series on Code Reuse, 3rd Party Libraries and Package Management

Gavin Pickin |  June 23, 2022

Gavin has presented several webinars on the Online ColdFusion Meetup with Charlie Arehart. This series was inspired by many questions from customers and community members, wanting to learn more about code reuse, when should they write their own modules, when should they use java or coldfusion/cfml packages, and why should people use CommandBox and ForgeBox vs manually handling your 3rd party and shared libraries. This series tries to go back to basics, and explain pros and cons of each approach, hopefully shedding light and demystifying 3rd party libraries, package management, CommandBox endpoint installations, and ForgeBox being the home of all CFML, not a tool for box only products and tools. Check out this blog post for all of these sessions, and links on how to view them on YouTube.

Getting started with ColdBox Debugger

Daniel Garcia |  June 21, 2022

The ColdBox Debugger (cbDebugger) module is “a light-weight performance monitor and profiling tool for ColdBox applications” that can be used to see what is going on with your site. It can monitor any ColdBox site, from frontend sites with views to REST API sites. It can also track many things and give insights into requests, CacheBox caches, database activity (including cborm, quick, qb, and Adobe CF 2018+). It has also been recently updated to use Alpine JS as well as other enhancements. If you have not used ColdBox Debugger in a while, it is time to take another look.
