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.
Getting married? Why not try out this new project to help with your gift registry.
AFP Webworks have created a repository on github containing their CMS.
This is a new CFML based CMS. Although I’ve mentioned this project before, I’ve listed it under “New Projects” since it now has a github repository and code available.
A wrapper for CFHTTP designed to make life easier when interacting with RESTful APIs.
Xindi (lightweight CMS) continues it’s brilliant record for regular releases with another update.
Codename: Halfling, Tafff 1.2 (REST API framework) is out and considering ready for production use. It has had a major rewrite of the URI handling code, un-deprecation of the .format feature, subfolder support in /resources, custom regex for your tokens and more.
An Adobe ColdFusion administrator extension designed to make adding/viewing/removing SSL certificates in the Java certificate store easier and accessible via the CF administrator. This update fixes an array sorting error in the KeyStoreManager.
Designed to detect the type of a file by its contents rather than basing it on the file extension only.
For centralisation and visualisation of automated bug reports. This release adds more granular timespans to the reports under the mobile UI, provides links to switch between mobile / desktop versions, improved internal error handling/reporting and more.
This framework has been given a full stable 2.1 release. Including things like Application Tracing, Environment Control and much more. For full details on what’s involved, follow the title link to Sean Corfields blog post on the release.
This is a new module designed to interact with the jsFiddle site, allowing you to insert fiddles for multiple users in your posts and pages.
Community blog posts
Between Andy Scott and Joel Watson there’s a nice collection of blog posts delving into various areas of ContentBox.
Andrew also delves into ColdBox with a post taking a look at creating your own HTML Helper.
Force root domain plugin
James with yet another CFWheels plugin to his name, this one forces the root domain on a website.
Although there wasn’t a post last week, I still collected and generated the github statistics for ColdFusion so the report won’t have a gap. Last week also saw Marc Esher and his CFMongoDB fork move up to 10th in the most starred overall table.
