Taffy: Convention-Over-Configuration REST framework for ColdFusion and Railo
Taffy is a ColdFusion framework that helps you build RESTful web services with very little boilerplate code, very little configuration and very little effort.
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.
- Taffy 2.0.x
- Taffy 1.3.x
If you file a bug or ask for support, usually our first question is "What version of Taffy are you using?" If it's an older release, we usually ask you to upgrade. Officially, we promise to support the current "minor" release and the prior "minor" release. When Taffy 2.0 is released, it and the preceding "minor" release (e.g. Taffy 1.4.x, if such a thing were to exist) would be supported.
Supported versions get priority for bug fixes; and we make no promise 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 upgrade is not an option in your case, and you still have an isolatable and reproducable bug, contact me to discuss further options.
Documentation is provided via the wiki, and here's a nice clean index of what's in the wiki.
You can contribute to the documentation
In addition to the issues list, Taffy uses a public trello board to track and plan the framework roadmap.
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 the #ColdFusion channels on both Freenode and DALNet (IRC).
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.
