With regret I’ve decided to finally admit to myself that CFTracker is about alive as a Monty Python parrot. It was never the easiest project to wrestle with, especially having to play Sherlock Holmes to work out what Adobe ColdFusion’s internal bits and bobs were for (thank the flying spaghetti monster that Railo was open source!).
Seems like it’s been a really quiet week for CFML open source projects or I’m having a hard time finding releases. Keep in mind that if you want your project mentioned there are numerous ways of getting my attention:
- Comment on this post.
- Use the contact form on this blog or email me directly if you know my address.
- Hit me up on twitter.
- Update your RIAForge project page (if you have one) with your release.
- Have your blog added to ColdFusion Bloggers.org and do a post about your release.
For anyone who hasn’t seen these reports before. They are generated from information I collect from github on a weekly basis (Mondays) for certain languages. Hopefully allow people to see trends in popular repositories or up and coming new ones.
This week saw Font Awesome step up to 8th on the most starred overall. While still maintaining a place on both most starred this week / month, it looks like the project could jump a few more places if it maintains the pace.
After taking a break from posting on New Years Eve, here is issue 7 of my CFML Open Source Update. Covering two weeks worth of activity, from the 2012-12-24 to 2013-01-07. Couldn’t find too many new projects for the period, but there are a couple of new releases for existing projects worth looking into.
In the run up the end of the year there hasn’t been as many new projects appearing, but still quite a few releases and plugin / module activity. Semnet GmbH released the only two new projects that I could find. However there were 5 UDFs added to CFLib this week and a bunch of posts, plugins and information from a few large projects.
