The first video of July describes the differences between lazy queries and regular queries:

In Lucee 5.3, Rasia has added a new feature to enable logs to be stored in a database instead of the default behavior (in the various log files). Gert Franz wrote up a good overview on the Rasia Blog. Let us know what you think!

@bdw429s recommended I post here, so am doing so.

I’ve been picking away at a Lucee web app in my off-hours for awhile, and it is now in beta. Would very much love to have fellow CF and/or Lucee folks pick away at it:

Specs

Stack: Lucee 5.x / PostgreSQL / Framework-One / Angular 1.x
Env: Ubuntu 16.04, Apache @ Digital Ocean

Misc:
Blog: Ghost
https://ghost.org/

Forums: Discourse using ColdFusion-based SSO with Discourse

Charting: Highchart
https://www.highcharts.com/

SSL: Let’s Encrypt

Payment Integration: Stripe (via Stripe-CFML)


What is it?

It’s a credit card calculator. Supply a budget, plug in your balances and minimum payments, and it maths out which card you pay first, second, third, etc. It updates on-the-fly while you pay your bills, so that you are always maximizing (at least) one card at a time.

As mentioned above, it’s now in beta release, which is functionally-complete, but be warned as it is very early beta! Still quite buggy! Nevertheless, would love to share it with you all.

nice work on db logging.

would be great to be able to log to a message queue also (more performant than file or db)

CF2018 released: what are the key new features, and where to find more?

Adobe has released ColdFusion 2018 late last week, July 12 2018, after a several month pre-release cycle. As is often the case, info about the release (new features, pricing, etc.) is a bit spread out, so I wanted in in this post to pull that info together, after I’ve been reviewing it the past few days.

Is there an environment variable to control this?

Would be nice for a docker containers so dev could set as always and prod as never.


#13

All the ENV configuration options for Lucee 5.x are tracked here:

Unfortunately, it looks like template inspection is still an option we’re waiting on:

@IamSigmund @micstriit can we prioritise this configuration option?


#14

Will do. I’ve added it to my watchlist, and will investigate.
