For Christmas this year, why don't you give the gift of unit tests to everyone (including yourself) who may work on your app in the future.  Nothing else brings about the same amount of confidence in refactoring or assurance that your app still works on that new CF engine update you just installed.  While you use TestBox to write and run your tests, CommandBox has some commands built in to help you do it in style.  And most importantly, these CLI commands are perfect for automating your tests on your favorite CI server like Jenkins or Travis.

In this installment of The 12 Tips of (CommandBox) Christmas we'll talk about a CommandBox module called CFConfig that will make your life a whole lot easier.  A couple of days ago we covered the server.json file which helps you define what CF engine to use (Lucee, Adobe, etc) and your JVM settings and web server settings in a way that is easy to distribute to you coworkers.  There was one big thing missing though and that is all of the settings that you put in your ColdFusion administrator like datasources, CF mappings, and request timeouts.  Well, Christmas has come early this year because CFConfig is the piece of the puzzle that does that for you!

'Tis the season to share with others.  And what a perfect time to talk about sharing your CFML libraries!  How many times do you think CF devs have written the same libraries and integrations over and over, just to keep their work to themselves.  Giving your work back to the community is what makes the world go 'round and also makes the CF space more attractive to outside developers looking in.
