Steve's Experimental CFC Framework
I have been experimenting with a new way to look at Fusebox. This version of Fusebox looks just like Fusebox 4&5, but does not use any XML or require any core files. It
simply organizes CFCs in a way that allow them to manage themselves.
Frameworks Conference Feb 2007
I presented these ideas at the 2007 Frameworks conference and had a very animated audience. It is rather difficult to explain all the
intricacies of these ideas in 60 minutes, so here's a TON of code to look at. I built an entire blog application using these concepts.
Be warned! This is demo app, i have done very little testing on it. IT HAS BUGS! Specifically with the "var" keywords. I
know about many of the errors, but i have not fixed many of them. In addition to the code itself, i wrote a document that walks
through the code and gives a detailed description of the application.
Oh by the way... I'm also experimenting with a new database structure. It's pretty neat, I'm not 100% sold on it, but i like
the concepts of it, I'll write up more details about how it all works sometime in the future.
MDCFUG Presenation Nov 2006:
Here are some animated viewlets to demonstrate my ideas.
1) Application Setup
2) Directories and Files
3) MVC CFCs
4) Content Variables
I presented these ideas at the Maryland ColdFusion User Group on 11/14/06. During the presentation i created a sample application. It is nothing special, but will give
you an opportunity to look at some of the code. Be aware, i did not 'var' any of the variables in this sample.
