Codey: A Scribble Pad for ColdFusion Builder

· Web Dev Zone
Free Resource

Make the transition to Node.js if you are a Java, PHP, Rails or .NET developer with these resources to help jumpstart your Node.js knowledge plus pick up some development tips.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

I've written a new ColdFusion Builder extension, called Codey, that opens up as a View. After opening it is a little scribble pad to quickly run a few lines of code. Its inspired partially by how I often use the console log in Chrome -- writing a few lines of JavaScript or jQuery and see what happens.

After installing you can pull it up by either going to Window > Show View > Other > ColdFusion > Codey or Right-Click on a File and select Codey.

Once up enter code in the textarea and click Run. Both tags and script syntax are supported and the latter without defining cfscript first. This allows you to write code like:

a=now();
#a#

and have it work.

Errors are trapped within the code and the error returned.

The extension is on github and details are on RIAForge.

Learn why developers are gravitating towards Node and its ability to retain and leverage the skills of JavaScript developers and the ability to deliver projects faster than other languages can.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
