At Ortus Solutions, we love the holidays, and we wanted to gift you a gift of developer productivity, we will share a few tips and tricks that will keep giving all year around. In this series we'll be giving you 12 ContentBox tips. Keep your eye out for other 12 tips of Christmas series on our blog, including a new one this year, 12 modules of Christmas on ForgeBox.

Day 8 - Install ContentBox in Seconds + More. In last years 12 ContentBox tips of Xmas, we showed you how to install ContentBox with a one liner. A few things have changed in 3.5.0.

How do I get started with ContentBox?

If you haven't already, Install CommandBox, CFMLs own CLI and Package Management Tool plus much more

New Installation Slugs

ContentBox has been partitioned into three installation slugs from ForgeBox in this version going forward:

  1. `contentbox` - Installs ContentBox as a module into any ColdBox application.
  2. `contentbox-site` - Installs a new ColdBox site enabled for ContentBox with a dependency on contentbox for its module.
  3. `contentbox-installer` - Same as above but with our DSN Creator and Installer Module.

This new schema and re-organization allows us better flexibility when updating ContentBox and installing ContentBox under docker containers. First of all, updating ContentBox will now be a matter of running `box update contentbox` in the root of the site.

We are trying to leverage CommandBox much more for updates and also for ease of use of installation.
