Module developing in ColdFusion Builder for ContentBox

Ok I am looking for an easier way to do module development, the idea is that I would be able to have ContentBox and the development Modules separate from each other, but not have to use the update or install methods for each Module.

So far I manually copy the files for the module into ContentBox, after deleting the folder in ContentBox so that all obsolete files are removed.

What I am looking for is an easier way.

My first thought, was to setup IIS to point that folder to the development folder of that module.

Anyone else have ideas of something that would make life easy?

Andrew, I guess I don’t follow. Can you expand on this please.

I am looking for a way to develop a module, the source directory is not in ContentBox, this way I can have it in source control.

The thing is I learnt a very valuable lesson to not delete the module from ContentBox as it deleted the source to my module and I had to start from scratch.

So to overcome this while developing the module, I moved the source to their own projects in CF Builder.

Now I am looking for an easier way to copy the files, or install the module. At the moment as I stated I am manually copying the code over to the correct directory to test any change I make to the module.

Ahhh, now I get you. Yes, I had the same issue. I now basically use symbolic links

I thought of that, but IIS is what I am using and I am not sure how that can be done for IIS and ColdFusion.

Well you learn something new, found out that you can create symbolic links in Windows. And now all is good…
