QuackFuzed.com is the personal ColdFusion coding blog of Matt Quackenbush. It exists primarily as a place for the author to learn, and hopefully to assist others in learning and/or avoiding some of the same pitfalls and mistakes. (Quack certainly makes enough mistakes daily to make up for the entire ColdFusion community.)

ColdBox 2.6 Makes ColdCourse Integration Even Easier

Posted on May 17, 2008 at 7:30 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

Awhile back I posted about ColdCourse Integration in ColdBox, and how easy it is to use SES (or "pretty") URLs with ColdBox. Today I was taking a peek at the What's New in ColdBox 2.6 documentation, and down at the very bottom I spotted something that seems so trivial, but is so totally cool that I wanted to be sure to highlight it.

ColdBox 2.6 + AJAX (powered by jQuery) = Sinfully Easy

Posted on May 16, 2008 at 4:48 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion, jQuery

I've mentioned before that I <3 ColdBox and that I <3 jQuery. Independently of one another, they are just a pleasure to work with. Today I decided to write my first-ever jQuery-powered AJAX functionality inside a ColdBox-powered application. It's ridiculously simple to do - one might even say sinful. So easy in fact, that I decided to post a quick "tutorial" on how to handle a pretty common task with ColdBox and jQuery.

Using Mapped Views in ColdBox

Posted on April 14, 2008 at 3:55 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

I don't know about you guys, but there are a number of simple, boring view files that are identical across multiple applications. One such example would be a standard user login form. Nothing fancy - it's the same on pretty much all websites. In the past I have always done the ol' copy/paste for these files and had them residing in the directory structure of each application that they were needed in. Well, thanks to ColdBox those days are now gone forever in QuackApps.

Posted on February 18, 2008 at 7:35 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

Simply put, I continue to be amazed at how powerful a framework ColdBox is, and how pleasurable it is to build applications on it. Thank you again to Luis and Team ColdBox for all of your hard work!

ColdCourse Integration in ColdBox 2.5

Posted on December 23, 2007 at 5:00 AM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

ColdBox 2.5 now has native support for Adam Fortuna's ColdCourse project. Man, this stuff is totally awesome! Prior to the last few days of digging into 2.5, I had only had a chance to casually glance at ColdCourse. Thanks to Luis Majano and Russ Johnson for working hard to get ColdCourse implemented.

Now, instead of having a URL like this one...

Upgrading From ColdBox 2.0.x to 2.5.1

Posted on December 21, 2007 at 7:45 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

If you have not yet taken a look at the latest ColdBox release, 2.5.1, I really recommend that you do. It is an especially exciting release for me personally, as it now permits each of the following:

1. external event handlers
2. "flash" memory on setNextEvent() / setNextRoute()
3. internal support for Adam Fortuna's ColdCourse project

There are, however, a couple of "gotchas" that I wanted to pass along.

My First ColdBox-Powered Site Launched

Posted on September 27, 2007 at 6:26 PM in ColdBox, ColdFusion

It's actually been three or four days now, but I finally launched the LISD Council of PTAs site, my first one that is built on the ColdBox framework. The development process is so quick and intuitive with ColdBox.

I've been extremely busy with "kids stuff" of late, so I haven't had a chance to really do much else. Hopefully in the coming days I'll be able to set some time aside to post a couple of quickie ColdBox tutorials.
