Issue with Forgebox not correctly creating folder structure when installing modules


When installing modules from Forgebox using the Coldbox Platform Utilities, the module is installed in the root modules folder instead of a folder based on the module name. For example, when I install the ORM modules, it did not create a cborm folder under modules/. Instead it copied all the directory and files to the modules folder. I had to manually create the cborm folder then move the directory structure to the cborm folder.

For cbValidation, I created a folder for cbValidation, then I installed with the focus on that directory and the module installed correctly.

Byron, with the advent of CommandBox, we will be removing this feature from the utilities. If not we are doing double work.

We will be migrating to leveraging CommandBox for all installations.

Thanks, Luis. Fair enough. All other current functionality will stay the same, or do you have roadmap for the utilities? I work in CF Builder and it is nice to do most everything from there. I've played with Commandbox and like it, but would not have to switch back and for things like creating new handlers, ORM stuff to name a few.

Thanks again for your work.

Yes, we will continue to develop it more as CFBUilder continues to get enhanced. I would love to be able to add CommandBox console additions, which you can now by adding your own terminal plugin. This is huge for me, as I have my terminal in CFBuilder as well.

Thanks. I'll look into using a terminal plugin. That will be new for me.

Thanks again for your responses and your work on Coldbox.

Won't Do
