Installation

The only thing you will need to run these exercises is CommandBox CLI and Java 7+ installed. CommandBox CLI is supported on Mac, Linux, and Windows, and the installation guide can be found here:

https://ortus.gitbooks.io/commandbox-documentation/content/setup/installation.html

An example of getting CommandBox CLI setup if you're a Homebrew user on Mac would be:

1
brew install commandbox

Once you have the CLI installed, you can play withe REPL:

1
box repl

You can directly execute .cfm pages:

1
box exec myTest.cfm

And you can even start up a web server in any directory of your hard drive:

1
box server start

CommandBox has an interactive shell you can use that has enhanced tab completion and runs faster. Enter it by just running the box binary with no arguments.
