You can route responses inline with ColdBox via the addRoute() function globally in your main routes.cfm template or within any Module as well. This will allow you to build simple response functions or even mock out or stub a RESTFul service very easily. The paremeters you will use for response routing will be: response, statusCode and statusText.

The response argument can be a string or a closure or UDF pointer. The closure and UDF will receive a rc argument which represents the request collection parsed already for you. The simple string can also contain replacement strings that are binded to the parsed parameters from the pattern by using {key} replacements. You can even execute runEvent() within your closure and delegate to whatever event you want instead of auto-routing as well.

// Simple response routing
addRoute( 
    pattern="/users/hello", 
    response="

Hello From RESTLand

", statusCode=200 ); // Simple response routing with placeholders addRoute( pattern="/users/:username", response="

Hello {username} From RESTLand

", statusCode=200 ); // Closure/UDF response routing addRoute( pattern="/users/:username", response=function(rc){ // Do some code here // more code return "

Hello #arguments.rc.username# from RESTLand

"; } ); // Closure/UDF response routing with event support addRoute(pattern="/users/:username", response=function(rc){ // Do some code here // more code return runEvent(event='api:users.data', eventArguments={quickData=true}); });
Happy Resting!!

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.
