Being a new platform from Ortus, I wanted to take some time to dive in to the tech stack we are using to build CFCasts. Many people ask us how we would build a modern CFML site. Well, here's at least one answer.
At Ortus Solutions we are known for building open source projects for the ColdFusion (CFML) community such as ColdBox, CommandBox, ContentBox Modular CMS, ForgeBox and many more. All of those products are licensed under the Apache 2 license and are completely FREE to use and extend.
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.
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.
