In the last blog post, we talked about extending ContentBox with modules. With ContentBox being built on top of ColdBox, and integration with ForgeBox using CommandBox, there are a lot of modules ( and module locations), and how those modules interact isn't obvious at first. To be honest, with ContentBox 3, we only just decided to move the core contentbox modules, to provide clearer separation, and easier source control management... things are changing, so I thought this would be a great time to explain about the different type of module locations, and why you should use one over another.
ContentBox 3 - Extending ContentBox 3 easily with Modules
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. ContentBox 3.0 has been a massive project, with so many changes and features, its really exciting to be a part of it. The good news, the testing is almost all done, we're going to cut a final release very soon. This means I have a lot of great things to blog about, and if you want a front seat to a full tour, you need to make sure you are coming to Into The Box (Ortus Solution's very own 1 day 2 track conference), June 14, 2016, in Minneapolis University of St Thomas, MN. USA - the day before Dev.Objective().
Note: You should attend both of these Conference, they are great, and the Ortus Solutions and ColdBox team will be giving several presentations at Into The Box and Dev.Objective()). They are great learning & networking events, hope to see you all there.

Intro to box.json
In ForgeBox package management, the box.json file contains data related to your package. This post covers a good base for what minimum attributes to include to get your package loaded up to ForgeBox and make it CommandBox friendly.
CommandBox - Searching ForgeBox
We have big plans for using CommandBox to install packages from all sorts of code endpoints-- local folders, Git/SVN URLs, private corporate repos, etc. Version 1.0 of CommandBox focused on ForgeBox though, which is our CFML code depot. It may have started out as a ColdBox/ContentBox-specific thing, but is now open to the entire community to put any project they want on. I'm excited to already see entries like CFWheels, FW/1, MXUnit, and MonkehTweets on there. The more packages installable from CommandBox via ForgeBox, the more we all win.
Soon ForgeBox will get even more life of its own enhancing it with more functionality such as having multiple versions of the same package. We've already set up forgebox.io as the new domain for ForgeBox's HTML interface where you can search, sort, and filter the entries in your web browser. We've also built a "forgebox" namespace into CommandBox that uses the REST API to let you interact with ForgeBox from your console.
ColdBox Validation is Now a Module
The new modular approach of ColdBox 4.0 means much of its built-in functionality has been moved to separate, installable modules. One of the many new modules introduced with ColdBox 4.0 is the Validation Module. To install, simply fire up CommandBox.
