Introducing ColdBox Elixir: UI Asset Manager

Luis Majano
Jun 07, 2016

 

 

We are very excited today to formally announce the availability of ColdBox Elixir, coldbox/elixir. ColdBox Elixir provides a clean, fluent API for defining basic Gulp tasks for your ColdBox applications.

 

This project was forked from the Laravel Elixir project, so many many thanks for all their hard work and ideas.

 

Overview

We wanted to provide ColdBox developers and easy way to approach an asset pipeline and task executor. The elixir project accomplished this and we have extended it to match the conventions used in ColdBox but also took it a step further to make it compatible with TestBox and CommandBox. This way you can have a full task runner available to you than can integrate with CommandBox recipes, package management, command execution and also TestBox executions.

Building Ionic Apps with ColdBox REST

Scott Steinbeck
Mar 22, 2016

 

Are you ready to enter the exciting world of app building? In today's world, 60% of people are viewing your website on a mobile phone most sites are hard to navigate.  People constantly have to scrolling around and zoom in and out to get all the information. The first option is to make a responsive site which will help but in squishing all your content down into a smaller screen, you lose a lot of the design aspects you spent all your time working on. 

What about a mobile app? Well that's just way too expensive to create, and plus you have to know Objective-C (or Swift) and Java.... Well thanks to some help from our friends at Ionic Framework now you too can create a mobile app without having to learn new languages. Now you can fully customize your user's experience on your site, plus use all of the functionality that is available to the phone. You can easily integrate popular plugins such as the Camera, Geolocation, Contacts, Bluetooth, TouchID, Accelerometer, and much more...

In my Webinar on March 30th I will give a quick overview of Ionic Framework and the Ionic Ecosystem, create a ContentBox REST API, and build an Ionic App that will pull live data from the ContentBox API to display pages and blog posts.

CommandBox 3.0.0 Final Released

Brad Wood
Feb 09, 2016

 

We are super excited to release CommandBox 3.0.0, our newest version of the CFML CLI, REPL, package manager, embedded server, and your source of awesome ASCII art.  This is a major release of the platform that contains many new features and improvements totaling over 50 tickets!  The final version is available for public consumption and we recommend all CommandBox users upgrade.  

Get It

As usual, the only step required to upgrade is to replace your 'box' binary and the next time CommandBox runs, it will complete the install. If you used yum, apt-get or brew to install, just request the newest version.  All the binaries are also available on our download page.

If you're new to CommandBox, no worries. Just check out our installation page where we have detailed instructions for each operating system to get you up and running in about 60 seconds.

https://ortus.gitbooks.io/commandbox-documentation/content/setup/installation.html

Got It

Once you've installed the latest 3.0.0 build, let's look around at some of the new stuff:

  • Config Settings - Customize and configure CommandBox just for you
  • Modules - The 'Box is now modular and can be extended like never before
  • Interceptors - Hook into the internals of the CLI and build upon it
  • Standardized Command Packaging - Custom commands can now be packaged up as modules
  • Server.json - Default every aspect of the embedded server for packaging and convenience
  • Shortcut for Native OS Binaries - Mucho improved native shell executions from inside CommandBox
  • Shortcut for CFML Functions via REPL - A new sweet way to run CFML functions right from the commandline
  • Expressions in Command Parameters - Express yourself with new syntaxes for calling commands with dynamic inputs
  • Command DSL - New features to help devs writing custom commands

There is a full write up on each of these features including examples and links to the docs here in our beta release post.  Please read through it if you want to dig in deeper to the new stuff.

CommandBox 3.0.0 Beta Released for Testing

Brad Wood
Jan 19, 2016

 

We've been hard at work developing some cool new features for CFML's CLI, Package Manager, REPL, and Embedded Server, CommandBox.  Since there are so many major features, we're targeting this as a major release of the product, so welcome version 3.0.0s.  We want you to kick the tires and try out the newest features before our final release.   Please put in tickets for any issues you run across, or post to our mailing list.

Installation

First things first.  To install the latest 3.0.0 beta version of CommandBox, download the appropriate binary for your OS here:

http://integration.stg.ortussolutions.com/artifacts/ortussolutions/commandbox/3.0.0/

The first time you run box, it will install and replace any previous installation.  If you want to go back to the previous version later, you'll need to remove the .CommandBox folder in your user home first.

Documentation

The GitBook-based docs have had major updates made to them.  Prior to the final release of CommandBox 3.0.0, you can preview the bleeding edge of our docs here: 

http://commandbox.ortusbooks.com/content/v/development/

Also, the bleeding edge API docs are available here as well:
