I’ve been using Coldbox since the v2 days, but I’ve never used it to anywhere near what it’s really capable of. Nevertheless, it’s still my favorite framework by far.
I’m about to start a whole new application, which will end up being very large when complete, and I want to use Coldbox 4. I’ve read the manual on the changes, and it makes some sense, but not a ton. I don’t have a CompSci degree so a lot of this goes over my head.
Has anybody written a blog or HOWTO or something with basics on moving to 4? The more I have to dig into the documentation, the less likely I am to do so. I’ll end up using v3, or just dropping it entirely.
Silly things like, on v3, I usually commented out the SES stuff for development… if I do that in 4, it throws an error about a BaseHTMLURL or somesuch missing. I know some stuff has changed with injecting dsn stuff, and I know cookie handling has changed too, but I’d have to go back to the docs to try to find that stuff.
What about the basic handler events? Layouts? Can I copy my old Layout.main.cfm file over? You know, stupid stuff like that.
