What's New With 5.1.2

This is a patch release for ColdBox

Bugs/Regressions

  • [COLDBOX-711] - HTML helper cannot add fontawesome icons in button due to XSS enabled by default
  • [COLDBOX-712] - ColdBox shutdown code that uses CF mappings for modules fails on fwreinit
  • [COLDBOX-713] - addAsset throw error when called from handlers

Improvements

  • [COLDBOX-714] - Too many issues when encoding by default for HTML Helper, revert to non-encoded and provide ways to encode globally and a-la-carte

HTML Helper Changes

The HTML Helper has been migrated to an internal module in this release. It allows you to configure it via the following configuration settings in your ColdBox.cfc.

moduleSettings = {
    htmlHelper = {
        // Base path for loading JavaScript files
        js_path = "",
        // Base path for loading CSS files
        css_path = "",
        // Auto-XSS encode values when using the HTML Helper output methods
        encodeValues = false
    }
}

Injection Shortcut

You can also now inject the HTML helper anywhere using it's injection DSL Shortcut of @HTMLHelper

When I want to increase the perceived speed of my CBWIRE apps, one tool I reach for is prefetching. Prefetching is a built-in feature of Livewire JS that allows you to invoke an Action's results on mouseOver.

Into the Box 2022 - Conference Recap

Into the Box 2022 - Conference Recap

This years Into the Box has just wrapped up, but we are already preparing for 2023’s Into the Box, May, Houston Texas! The event was a huge success, we had solid attendance in person, and almost doubled our online viewership from 2021, great feedback from attendees in Houston, and online. So many attendees didn’t say goodbye at the end of the conference, they said see you next year, which, as an organizer lets you know you’ve done things right, and the hard work has paid off.
