Taffy: The REST framework for ColdFusion and Railo

You're here because creating REST APIs with the native functionality in ColdFusion 10 and Railo is verbose, complex, and developer-hostile. Or maybe you're still on an older version of ColdFusion.

You've come to the right place.

Taffy is low friction, extremely simple to get started, and it's compatible as far back as ColdFusion 8.

It's terse because it uses convention over configuration, and doesn't require writing a bunch of boilerplate code. How terse? A functional API can fit into a tweet.

It's easy to debug because error messages are returned as JSON by default and it optionally integrates with your favorite IoC libraries like ColdSpring and DI/1.

Build Status

Taffy Build Status

Taffy has a comprehensive test suite and uses continuous integration to ensure that the code is always usable. If you'd like, you can review the Jenkins build history for Taffy.

Currently Supported Versions

  • Taffy 2.1.x
  • Taffy 2.0.x
  • Taffy 1.3.x

If you file a bug or ask for support please indicate which version of Taffy you're using. If it's an older release, we usually ask you to upgrade. Officially, we promise to support the current and previous minor releases and the last minor release of the previous major release. Taffy follows versioning guidelines defined in semver.

Supported versions get priority for bug fixes. No promises are made to fix bugs filed against unsupported versions. If your version is supported and your bug is reproducible and isolatable, we'll do everything within our power to address it.

If you're on an unsupported version, upgrade is not an option in your case, and you still have an isolatable and reproducable bug, contact me to discuss further options.

Documentation

Primary documentation is available at docs.taffy.io, with a few of the more detailed guides remaining in the wiki for now.

You can contribute to the documentation

If you would like to contribute to documentation, please read this blog post. If you still have questions, ask them on our mailing list. :)

Roadmap

In addition to the GitHub issues list, we use a public trello board to track and plan the framework roadmap.

Taffy Roadmap

Community

We have a mailing list for Taffy Users. Feel free to ask for help, discuss potential bugs, and share new ideas there.

I also frequent/idle in the #ColdFusion channel on Freenode (IRC).

Open Source!

Part of the beauty of open source is that you can affect change. You can help improve the documentation, fix a bug, add tests, or even propose new features. Nothing is off limits, and I try to be very responsive to pull requests and on the mailing list.

What does that mean?

It means you can use Taffy pretty much any way you like. You can fork it. You can include it in a proprietary product, sell it, and not give us a dime. Pretty much the only thing you can't do is hold us accountable if anything goes wrong.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
