Integrate ColdFusion and BaseCamp via BaseCamp CFC

If you've ever done any project management, you're surely aware of how invaluable a good piece of project management software can be to help manage tasks. BaseCamp from 37Signals has rocketed to be one of the most widely used web-based project tracking tools available and rightfully so. It's easy, powerful and whole lot less expensive than Microsoft Project!

Terrence Ryan wanted some additional functionality so he whipped out an editor and created a ColdFusion component that ties into the BaseCamp API.

I've been using Basecamp for freelance consulting and I absolutely love it. I have one problem with it, once you shut down a project the client can't get any of their materials. It would be nice if you could export the entire contents of a project, compile it into a .pdf, and ship it off to a client as part of a project closeout.


Terrance has implemented quite a bit of the BaseCamp API most notably:

  • All of the data retrieval methods
  • Create, update, and delete methods for comments and messages

Basecamp CFC is a work in progress so you can assume you'll see more.

You can download Basecamp CFC from there now.
