FW/1 (Framework One) Build Status Join the chat at

This FW/1 directory is a complete web application and expects to live in its own webroot if you plan to run the applications within it. To use FW/1 in a separate webroot you can either copy the framework directory to that webroot or add a mapping for /framework to the framework folder inside this FW/1 directory. Note that since your Application.cfc needs to extend, you have to add the mapping in your admin - you can't just use a per-application mapping.

Please read the Framework One Code of Conduct - we want FW/1 to be a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone to feel comfortable contributing!

Running the Tests

FW/1 is setup to run tests on Travis CI using the .travis.yml file.

To run tests manually, you'll need CommandBox installed.

Then run box install once to install the dependencies (TestBox is the only one currently).

Then start a server on port 8500 with your choice of CFML engine, e.g.,

box server start cfengine=lucee@5 port=8500

This will open a browser, running the FW/1 "Introduction" app.

You can then run the tests:

box testbox run verbose=false

If you get any failures, you can run this with more verbose, but still compact output:

box testbox run reporter=mintext
