Mementifier v2.x Released!

Luis Majano
Feb 13, 2020

 

We are so excited to bring a major version release of our Mementifier Module. For those of you who do not know what Mementifier is, here is a small synopsis.

What is Mementifier?

This module will transform your business objects into native ColdFusion (CFML) data structures with :rocket speed. It will inject itself into ORM objects and/or business objects alike and give them a nice getMemento() function to transform their properties and relationships (state) into a consumable structure or array of structures. It can even detect ORM entities and you don't even have to write the default includes manually, it will auto-detect all properties. No more building transformations by hand! No more inconsistencies! No more repeating yourself! Best of all, it is lightning fast!

Using CFConfig to apply Government STIGs to ColdFusion servers

Brad Wood
Jan 27, 2020

 

I wanted to highlight a recent project I help a client out with, where we used CFConfig to help automate the process of applying government STIGs to ColdFusion servers.  A STIG, or Security Technical Implementation Guide, is meant to standardize the process of setting up and auditing secure servers.  If you manage servers in a government or corporate setting, you may be familiar with this.  If not, you should still be automating your locks downs anyway, so keep reading.

First Webinar of the Year to Feature cbInertia

Paulina Lainez
Jan 27, 2020

 

To start off the year on the right note, we have decided to continue our webinar series with a talk on cbInertia. In this presentation, we will take a look at what apps Inertia is a good fit for, go through setup and usage, and take a look at a demo application to get a feel for the framework.

Inertia.js lets you, in its own words, "quickly build modern single-page React, Vue and Svelte apps using classic server-side routing and controllers." Using Inertia.js is like using your favorite MVC server-side framework (ColdBox, of course) with Vue as the templating language - no need to build a separate API. You can learn all about Inertia.js on their website.

This module provides the needed lifecycle and ajax responses to integrate Inertia.js into a ColdBox app on the server. It will let you render Inertia responses, both for the initial page visit and subsequent client-side transitions, as well as share data on every Inertia request.

So, make sure to register and don’t miss out on this great opportunity!
