We've had our CommandBox FusionReactor Module out for about 6 months now which lets you easily enable FusionReactor on your CommandBox servers.  It works for Lucee and Adobe servers alike and requires no manual installation. All you need to do is install the module and add in your license key with these two commands:

CommandBox> install commandbox-fusionreactor
CommandBox> fusionreactor register "XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"

Where are my Lucee and Adobe ColdFusion log files on CommandBox servers?

Brad Wood
Apr 10, 2017

 

As more people are starting to use CommandBox to start their Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee servers, I've gotten the question of where to find their log files.  The servers that CommandBox starts are full fledged servers with a web admin and all the same log files you'd expect.  However, CommandBox skips the vendor installer and uses the WAR files of each engine for a quick and lightweight deployment that can be deleted later and won't conflict with other servers, no matter how many you have.

Don't touch that Node-- write your own command line tools in CFML!

There's a lot of command tools out there written by developers to help them automate all sorts of tasks from code refactoring, linting, and builds. Node has become a popular tool to write reusable tools that can be run from the command line, but many CF developers don't realize that CommandBox has allowed developers to do this nativley in CFML for years now.

How to use a database in CLI scripts with CommandBox

Brad Wood
Feb 21, 2017

 

One of the cool things that CommandBox allows you to do is run CFML code directly from the command line via the execute command, or on Unix as a natively-executable hash bang script. This opens up all sorts of doors for scheduling cron jobs and whatnot that you can write in CFML much faster and esaier than using bash or shell scripts. One common question is how to access the database from one of these scripts.

CommandBox 3.5.0 Released

Brad Wood
Jan 10, 2017

 

We are pleased to announce the final release of CommandBox 3.5.0.  This is a minor release, with 53 completed tickets-- most of which are server enhancements focused on making server management and configuration easy across any engine.  This version has been in release candidate for a few weeks and has received a lot of testing.  As a minor release, there are no compatibility-breaking changes to any of the public APIs, but there has been some necessary restructuring of the back end bits related to starting servers that could possibly have an effect on you if you have any scripts or custom modules based on the previous folder structure of some server installs.  We recommend all users upgrade to this new version, but take a minute to review the changes so you can fully utilize the new features.
