Post Conference - Session Review - Getting your hooks into Cordova- Workflows and Build Helpers

Android, cfObjective, Cordova / Phonegap, Dev.Objective, Ionic, Javascript, Mobile Development, Node.js, Unit Testing

May 15th, 2015 was the last day of dev.Objective(), and the last session of the day had some great topics, “Devops: journeyman to infrastructure mastery”, ‘Marketing for Developers’, ‘Level Up your Javascript: Understanding the confusing bits’, ‘Web sockets, yes they can do that too', and my session, ‘Getting your Hooks into Cordova - Workflows and Build Helpers'. With mobile and hybrid development really growing into a track of its own, I decided to submit this topic, as I believe Cordova Hooks are a big part of Cordova mobile develop, they save me hours every week, and they are relatively unknown if you search for blog posts about them. When the session was accepted, I took that as a challenge to up my game and really research hooks, and make my presentation a complete resource.

How to write your very own CLI Commands in CFML

CFML Language, CFML Server, CommandBox, Lucee, Node.js, Server Admin, Tools and IDEs

I bet half of my audience just tuned out, seeing CFML in the title, but this is easier than writing Node as a Javascript Developer… of course you can prove me wrong. In case you have been sleeping under a rock, I’ll let you know that CommandBox went gold today… which apparently means it made it to 1.0. Its not like musical going gold, where you sold so many copies, going gold meant you made it to 1.0, and your api is solid enough to use in production or something. CommandBox is a CLI, a CFML REPL, Package Manager, built on a tiny Java Servlet Container, which means you can even spin up a server in any directory. Ortus Solution listened to the cries for a CLI and Package manager, and with Forgebox being extended to other any CFML library or module, not just Ortus / Coldbox libraries and modules, the CFML community finally has it.

Setting up my MBP For Mobile Development - IOS Android Cordova Node Ionic

Android, Cordova / Phonegap, Ionic, IOS, Node.js, Tools and IDEs

After months of playing with this, and playing with that, I have a few apps I have to actually get built, wrapped in cordova / phonegap and out to the app store and the many customers, waiting to download them. As usual, I want to document the silly little stuff you do to get things all setup, just in case Android destroys my Mac, I need to set it all up again. I have installed and played with some of these tools before, but I decided to start fresh, so follow along.
