Making Frameworks Dance: Customizing ColdFusion Frameworks

Wed, 09 Nov 2011

This is a mini-series of posts on getting ColdFusion frameworks to dance. Most of them are stiffs who can’t count to three, much less do the Charleston.

This mini-series is part of an overall series of converting a Ruby on Rails app to ColdFusion.

I like how Rails 3 applications are setup. I wanted to keep the following directory structure when converting the application to ColdFusion.

	+app
		+assets
			+documents
			+images
			+javascripts
			+stylesheets
		+controllers
		+layouts
		+model
		+views
	+assets
	+lib
		+{framework}
	Application.cfc
	index.cfm

I’ll be covering multiple frameworks and the issues in getting them to work in the directory structure above. Each framework will be it’s own post. This post will be updated with links to all posts in the mini-series so you can easily jump to your favorite.
