CONTAINERS2017 - Your first Docker Compose - Part 2

Gavin Pickin |  September 07, 2017

The Ortus Solution roadshow continues, we'll keep bringing you free webinars and blog posts through the month of September. If you have tuned in already, you might have learned what Docker is, why you could / should use it, and then maybe a little of how to use it. If the first part of this mini series on First Docker Compose we saw how ou can spin up a Docker container pretty easily, with a command or two, but usually, we work with multiple servers. Docker-Compose makes that easier, it doesn't have to be too confusing. We are building on top of part 1, where we spun up a CFML Server container by itself, and then we added a simple MySQL Server. Next we're going to add Nginx in front of the CFML Server container, and then we'll do more with the MySQL server, like add a database, and then seed it ( preload it ) with data to get things rolling. That is what we're going to look at today.

CONTAINERS2017 - Your first Docker Compose

Gavin Pickin |  September 05, 2017

The roadshow has just started, and you might have learned what Docker is, why you could / should use it, and then maybe a little of how to use it. You can spin up a Docker container pretty easily, with a command or two, but usually, we work with multiple servers. Configuring that might be confusing at first... you might wonder, if i spin up 3 containers, how do they know how to find each other, and other questions like this, are easily solved, with Compose files. That is what we're going to look at today.

CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 4 - Extending ContentBox 3

Gavin Pickin |  August 11, 2016

Ready for part 4? Yes, part 4. We continue our small walkthrough of building your own Admin Module in ContentBox 3. The last few blog posts we learned the minimum requirements for a new module, to be controlled from inside of ContentBox. Then we learned how to add a handler and a view, and how to access the module from the front end entry point, and through the ContentBox admin entrypoint. In the last blog post in this mini series, we looked at adding a Submenu for your module, to an existing top level Menu item inside of the ContentBox admin. This blog post is going to show you how to add your very own top level Menu item, give it an icon, set permissions, and then add Submenu items to access your module.

CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 3 - Extending ContentBox 3

Gavin Pickin |  August 09, 2016

In previous posts, we learned how to create a module inside of ContentBox, and then we added a handler and view so we could view the module behind the security of the login, but having an admin module, without menu items, is fairly silly ( usually ). In this blog post, we'll learn how you can add Submenu items to existing menus, like the Modules Main Menu.

CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 2 - Extending ContentBox 3

Gavin Pickin |  July 29, 2016

In our last post, we started building an Admin Module. This process isn't actually that difficult or long, but we have broken it into separate blog posts to make it easier to read each piece. We have built our basic ModuleConfig.cfc, now we need to build an event handler and view, so the default action when you hit your new module have something visible. Our module was called mySecrets, so lets move on.

CBCMS2016 - Building your Own Admin Modules - Part 1 - Extending ContentBox 3

Gavin Pickin |  July 27, 2016

In previous posts, we looked at how to extend ContentBox 3 with ColdBox Modules, installing from Forgebox with CommandBox, or creating your own. In this post, we're going to look at how you can create your own Admin Modules, add Menu Items into the Admin Interface, use ContentBox admin Users and Permissions instead of building your own security by extending ContentBox.
