Getting started with ColdBox Debugger

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.

Live Stream Series - Koding with the Kiwi + Friends - Next stream June 24th 2022

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.

Online CF Meeting Series on Code Reuse, 3rd Party Libraries and Package Management

Gavin has presented several webinars on the Online ColdFusion Meetup with Charlie Arehart. This series was inspired by many questions from customers and community members, wanting to learn more about code reuse, when should they write their own modules, when should they use java or coldfusion/cfml packages, and why should people use CommandBox and ForgeBox vs manually handling your 3rd party and shared libraries. This series tries to go back to basics, and explain pros and cons of each approach, hopefully shedding light and demystifying 3rd party libraries, package management, CommandBox endpoint installations, and ForgeBox being the home of all CFML, not a tool for box only products and tools. Check out this blog post for all of these sessions, and links on how to view them on YouTube.

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.
