ColdFusion for VueJS developers: the first 10 minutes
November 17, 2018
Getting started with ColdFusion
There are two good ways to get Adobe ColdFusion
– Go to https://www.adobe.com/coldfusion . You will be a redirected to ColdFusion. After you fill out their survey form, you can download the free trial. For the first 30 days, it will become the Developer Edition automatically. Unless you are doing some highly advanced developement, the Developer Edition will work fine. And its free
– Another way to get ColdFusion, Ortus Solutions, and download and install CommandBox. https://www.ortussolutions.com/products/commandbox . As a VueJS developer, you may find CommandBox to be more similar npm development. It is also free for developement work.
The rest of this document assumes that CommandBox will be used.
Get the code from Github
If you haven’t done so already, download this Github repository’s release. I do all of my work in `~/Sites/ColdFusion/[repository]`. However you can download it anywhere (if you are using CommandBox).
