ForgeBox v3.0.0 Has Landed
Our headline feature is that ForgeBox Storage is here!
You can now take advantage of our secure ForgeBox Storage to host your packages, public and private alike. ForgeBox Storage is perfect for private packages. Keep your code out of public source control and avoid messing with SSH keys just to download packages from private Git repos. ForgeBox Storage is safe and secure. And if you publish a private package, you can rest assured that only you have access to it.
To start using it, set the
location in your
When you publish a version with CommandBox your code will be zipped up and
sent to our ForgeBox Storage. And when you install a package hosted on
ForgeBox Storage it works quick and seamlessly.
Geodistribution is also coming in the next release. Our ForgeBox storage is replicated for the Americas and Europe. So if you are in Europe you will be downloading from our European mirrors instead. This is coming, so stay tuned.
Please note that ForgeBox Storage is a Free service for now until our Pro subscriptions arrive in the coming months. Enjoy!
ForgeBox.io as a Lucee Extension Provider
You know what else goes great with ForgeBox Storage? Using ForgeBox as a Lucee Extension provider! ForgeBox.io will now be able to act as a Lucee Extension Provider to give the CFML community a central and easily accessible repository to share Lucee Extensions. You don't need to host your provider or have a separate publishing workflow. Just use your existing ForgeBox account to publish packages of type Lucee Extension and anyone will be able to install them by adding
https://www.forgebox.io into their Lucee administrator as an extension provider.
Private Package Slug Change
Speaking of private packages, there's been a slight change to the slug format for private packages to enable us to keep delivering new features. Private packages used to be in the format
@username/slug. Going forward private packages will use the format
slug@username. CommandBox and ForgeBox will help you enforce this. No changes have been made to public packages.
