I just tested box server start, and I did it in a directory without an index.cfm file. I get:
Page /index.cfm /Users/ray/Desktop/trash/index.cfm not found
which is true of course, but if i don't have an index.cfm, it really should just do a directory list.
You can now enable directory listing by setting default servlet's init-param directory-listing to true.
Thanks for the feedback, Ray. Since "server start" is for development I can't imagine any reasons NOT to allow that. We're using Undertow as the servlet container so we'll see if we can get it working.
Maybe I'm odd, but I tend to build most of my POCs without using an index.cfm. Typically I'll have a test1.cfm, test2.cfm, etc. I like not having an index.cfm so I can quickly see my available things via /.
Directory browsing is now enabled by default.
theoretically that's that.
moving to 1.0.0 release
