CommandBox Workshop at ITB2017

We'll be covering all sorts of advanced topics, especially managing servers and extending the CommandBox core with modules to add your own behaviors and write CLI tools in CFML.

Here's the list of prerequisites:

  • A working knowledge of CommandBox’s shell and basic commands
  • Have the latest stable version installed already
  • A GitHub account and Git CLI installed (if you want to follow along with publishing packages)
  • We will focus on hands-on exercises and will end the day with each student building their own CommandBox module and publishing it to ForgeBox.

Integrating ColdBox with Existing Code Series 5: Using Wirebox

Integrating ColdBox with Existing Code Series 5: Using Wirebox

Recently, I did a webinar on Refactoring Legacy Code and the question came up about whether or not it was possible to use ColdBox with existing code without converting everything to a ColdBox module or making changes to the existing codebase. In the first installation in this series, we took a tour of the various elements which make up ColdBox. In the second installation, we looked at creating layouts, views, and routes in the main site. In the third, we created a module and did the first integration of our existing code into our ColdBox site. In the fourth, we continued developing our module with a handler and passing variable back to Coldbox. Now we'll use Wirebox with and without ColdBox Modules to see how these approaches differ from a traditional approach.
