ColdFusion Framework Note

Posted: April 7, 2016 in ColdFusion, Uncategorized

I tend to monitor the “ColdFusion Programmers” Facebook group. Today a poster asked:

Hi guys, What do you prefer: CFWheels or Coldbox? I used before CFWheels and is good but I recently starts playing with Coldbox and so far is pretty cool – Jorge Alexandro Martinez Dominguez

My response was:

I use FW/1 for about everything because it’s simple and what I know. However ColdBox will give you a ton more functionality via modules and they aggressively keep that framework up-to-date. They are very involved in the community and even have a “Into The Box” event once a year for pre-conference. I would use either, but if you’re new to both I’d probably look at ColdBox. Both base frameworks are similar.
