One of my personal favorites of CommandBox is the introduction of step-by-step wizards for some complication creation processes like a new package or a new ColdBox application.  It will take you by the hand and never let you go :) Here is the way to initialize a new package with our nice wizard:. First let's go into our interactive shell by typing box or opening the box binary.

 

mkdir myApp
cd myApp
init --wizard

 

This triggers the wizard and you will be asked a series of questions and finally create a box.json for you. Here is the wizard output:

 

 

Then we can get the output of the file and verify it:
