Coldbox SimpleMVC Demystifyed

Luis Majano |  July 23, 2009

I have been asked quite a few times why not make a ColdBox lite version where you can only have the basics?  Well, not many people now that this already exists.  Therefore, I am linking to the SimpleMVC template you can use if you are just starting with ColdBox.  This template is just the basic ColdBox conventions and a few settings, that's it. This template will ease you in to ColdBox MVC development.  Once you are comfortable with just the basics of how to build apps with conventions you can always add on and start brining in extra features from the Coldbox Platform like: caching, logging, AOP, interceptors, feed integrations, security, etc.  However, you won't feel as intimidated as if you where starting with a huge settings file.

The reason of having all the settings listed out is to tell the developer that there are all these settings you can use.  It is also hard to create templates when everybody's level and approach is different.  However, this can be overwhelming to entry level users, therefore we are now including the SimpleMVC template in the coldbox downloads to come or you can download it from here now: (3.0 template)

So let's do a simple ColdBox for Newbies guide:
