If you've been doing CFML development since the before Adobe bought out Macromedia, possibly even before Macromedia bought out Allaire, you've no doubt slogged through your share of procedural, template-based CFML.

This morning, we released the official Docker CommandBox image v3.6.0, which adds support for customizing your server using environment variables in your build, including support for the conventions used by the cfconfig CommandBox module. While the module is still in alpha, it is already proving to be a powerful way to provision and configure CFML servers at runtime.

Why use Docker?

If you're not up to speed with what Docker is and how it can benefit you, throughout the dev-ops lifecycle of your application, have a look at this summary article on the benefits or dig in to the official documentation. As we get further in to the weeds with configuration, we'll assume you're up to speed on the basics.

Node has become a popular tool to write reusable tools that can be run from the command line, but many CF developers don't realize that CommandBox has allowed developers to do this nativley in CFML for years now.

How to use a database in CLI scripts with CommandBox

Brad Wood
Feb 21, 2017

 

One of the cool things that CommandBox allows you to do is run CFML code directly from the command line via the execute command, or on Unix as a natively-executable hash bang script. This opens up all sorts of doors for scheduling cron jobs and whatnot that you can write in CFML much faster and esaier than using bash or shell scripts. One common question is how to access the database from one of these scripts.
