In our last session, Daniel and Gavin worked through a lot of content, what is the OpenAPI and Swagger Doc, some tools like editor.swagger.io and Daniel's CBSwaggerUI module. They looked at how to add tags, security, parameters, requestbody, responses and got side tracked down a really interesting rabbit hole after a question from one of the Patreons. Find out more and how to watch last weeks stream.
In this next session, Gavin will be joined by Daniel Garcia. Daniel has done a lot of work with APIs, testing them with Postman, using other tools like NGrok, and learning how to document APIs with OpenAPI Swagger Documentation. Daniel will discuss his approach, and how we released a module to make API documentation viewing easier, the Swagger UI module on ForgeBox. They will document a few endpoints, look at the swagger.json generated, and see how that looks in the Swagger UI module.
In our last session, Gavin, Sam and David talked about Quick, qb, some tricks. Sam shared the story of their journey towards quick. Gavin made a fool of himself... but that didn't stop him from showing off some other tips. Find out more and how to watch last weeks stream.
In our next session, Sam and David from In League will join Gavin. They will talk about their experience using Quick ORM, and qb, in their ColdFusion / CFML projects. Now that we have a simple DB Migration created, we'll start fleshing some entities and orm objects. We'll talk about how to test with the database gets involved, and look at getting our API to start returning data from the database... and more about db philosophies, and how to organize your services, entities etc. Find out how you can tune in and join the live stream.
In our last session, Gavin the Kiwi, kidnaps Kai Koenig for this weeks Koding with the Kiwi + Friends. After a lot of technical difficulties, Gavin thinks this week's videos should have been called Koding Disasters with the Kiwi + Hecklers. Find out more and how to watch last weeks stream.
The ColdBox Debugger (cbDebugger) module is “a light-weight performance monitor and profiling tool for ColdBox applications” that can be used to see what is going on with your site. It can monitor any ColdBox site, from frontend sites with views to REST API sites. It can also track many things and give insights into requests, CacheBox caches, database activity (including cborm, quick, qb, and Adobe CF 2018+). It has also been recently updated to use Alpine JS as well as other enhancements. If you have not used ColdBox Debugger in a while, it is time to take another look.
Starting last Friday, June 10th, at 1pm PDT, Gavin Pickin hosted a live stream, live coding, pair programming with some Community Member "Friends". This stream will try to include special guests from the community, to get their viewpoints / advice on how Gavin should do something. They’ll be pair programming while they chat, with each stream focusing on a piece of the project.
CFML makes it simple to instantiate and use native Java classes without leaving CFML-land. For example, we can use Java's SimpleDateFormat library to format a date object. In order to use a third-party java library, however, such as the Jsoup HTML parser, you will need to load the jar into the CFML engine first, so let's see how we can do that.
