Injecting Functions with WireBox

Brad Wood
Jan 31, 2017

 

This is a guest post by Eric Peterson.

I had a unique use-case the other day, and I wanted to share the solution with you all.

I use [a custom `Collection` component](https://github.com/elpete/CFCollection) to handle many higher-order functions like map, reduce, filter, etc. Basically, it wraps an array or a query and lets you continue chaining these functions, kind of like [wrapping a value with lodash in Javascript](https://lodash.com/docs/4.17.4#lodash).

We are excited to announce we have joined !

Sponsor Us
 

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.

 

However, the amount of effort needed to maintain and develop new features for all projects is not sustainable without proper financial backing. This is where you can come in and help support Ortus Open Source Software by pledging on Patreon. We have listed a bunch of options for you to sponsor Ortus Open Source Projects with lots of rewards like getting awesome recognition and some great discounts, swag and t-shirts. By pledging as little as $10 a month, you can contribute to this great cause and allow Ortus Open Source to have faster and ongoing development cycles. Pledge more and you can even be part of our product roadmap planning sessions.

 

If you run a business and are using Ortus Open Source software in a revenue generating product or service, it makes sense to sponsor Ortus Open Source Software development: it ensures the project that your product/services use stays healthy and actively maintained. If you are an individual user and have enjoyed the productivity of our Open Source Software tools, consider donating as a sign of appreciation :).

Making a live edit contact list with Coldbox REST & Vue.js

Scott Steinbeck
Mar 28, 2016

 

Today we will be making a contact database that you can quickly and easily manage using ColdBox and Vue.js. We will be using bootstrap in our project to make it the UI look a little better but it is completely optional if you want to use this in your own project.

For this project I will be using CommandBox to generate all my files.

TL;DR: View the repo here

Lets Begin.

Step 1: You can skip this step if you already have a project set up. 

From CommandBox run:

coldbox create app name=CBVue skeleton=rest --installColdBox

This will give us a minimal project with a handlers\BaseHandler.cfc (needed to make our life easy when creating a REST API) and an handlers\Echo.cfc which is an example usage to get you started.

Now that we have our project started we need to tweak a few things.

First, since this is a template that is expecting to be setup for REST only, the Echo.cfc is set to be the default entry point. Since we want to create a view that accesses a REST API we need to point that to a view.

ColdBox 4.0: What We Kept

Nathaniel Francis
Feb 20, 2015

 

ColdBox 4.0 is a major release for the ColdBox line. The most major since its original release in June 2006. To boost efficency and open up options, we've removed a lot of non-necessary items from the core installation and made them available through modular architecture instead. However, there are some thing that we've kept - and for good reason. This post discusses what we kept in the core of ColdBox 4.0 and why.

Hey, where'd my debugger go?

Curt Gratz
Feb 09, 2015

 

You may be wondering where all that amazing debugging information went in your ColdBox 4.0 application.  Have no fear.  You can still have your cake and eat it too.  We modularized it (sensing a theme in ColdBox 4.0 yet?) So, how do you get all that wonderful debugging info?

Easy! Using CommandBox, run the following command.

box install cbdebugger --saveDev

Notice the --saveDev we added to our command.  This is handy as it tells CommandBox that you only want this as a dependency for your application in development.  

Once the debugger module is installed, you can control the settings via the debugger structure in your main Coldbox config file.  

Also, if you need access to the debugger service or the timer, they are available via the following WireBox mappings.

  • debuggerService@cbdebugger
  • timer@cbdebugger

Just call getInstance() on either to snag them as needed.

Debug to your heart's content.
