FORGEBOX Enterprise 🚀 - Take your ColdFusion (CFML) Development to Modern Times! Learn More...
Hyper was built after coding several API SDK's for various platforms —
cbgithub, to name a few. I noticed that I
spent a lot of time setting up the plumbing for the requests and a wrapper
cfhttp. Each implementation was mostly the same but slightly different.
It was additionally frustrating because I really only needed to tweak a few
values, usually just the
Authorization header. It would be nice to create an
HTTP client pre-configured for each of these SDK's. It seemed the perfect fit
for a module.
Hyper exists to provide a fluent builder experience for HTTP requests and responses. It also provides a powerful way to create clients, i.e. Builder objects with pre-configured defaults like a base URL or certain headers.
Hyper runs on Adobe ColdFusion 2018+ and Lucee 5+.
ColdBox is not required, but mappings are provided for ColdBox users automatically.
