FW/1 Commands

A collection of CommandBox commands for working with FW/1

Installation

  1. First, make sure you have CommandBox installed.
  2. Fire up your terminal and drop into CommandBox by entering box.
  3. Install FW/1 Commands by entering install fw1-commands.
  4. Done!


Getting Started

Application Skeleton Generation With fw1 create app

To get started quickly, FW/1 Commands comes with a create app command that can be used to generate a ready-to-go application skeleton for you.

A simple example:

fw1 create app MyApp Basic

To break it down further, fw1 is the alias used that tells CommandBox that we are using FW/1 Commands. create app is instructing to use the app command located in the create driectory (check out the actual file structure of the command bundle to get a better idea). MyApp is the first parameter to be passed to the app command. This is the name of your application. Basic is the skeleton we chose to use as the base medium for out application structure.


A Deeper Look Into create app

create app can take up to 5 parameters.
  • name (type: string) - The name of your application. Defaults to "My FW/1 App" if no name is supplied.
  • skeleton (type: string) - The skeleton structure to generate. Defaults to basic.
  • directory (type: string) - The directory to generate the application skeleton in. If it does not exist, it will be created. Defaults to the current working directory.
  • installFW1 (type: boolean) - Flags whether to install the latest version FW/1. Defaults to false.
  • package (type: boolean) - Flags whether to create a box.json. Defaults to true.


Available Skeletons

  • Examples: (the examples and introduction folders from the FW/1 repo) - fw1 create app myApp examples
  • Skeleton: (the skeleton folder from the FW/1 repo) - fw1 create app myApp skeleton
  • Basic: (a bare bones setup for a single application) - fw1 create app myApp basic
  • Subsystem: (a bare bones setup for a application using subsystems 2.0 released with FW/1 3.5) - fw1 create app myApp subsystem
  • Subsystem Legacy: (a bare bones setup for a application using subsystems prior to 2.0) - fw1 create app myApp subsystem-legacy


Choosing A Directory to Generate In

By default, FW/1 Commands assumes that the current directory you are in on the command line is your current working directory and will generate the application in said directory. Should you need to install elsewhere, you can override this by passing in a path as the third parameter.

Example:

fw1 create app MyApp basic path/to/my/directory


Including Framework One With Your New Application

By default, FW/1 is not included with generated skeletons. The option to to use the master or development release is up to you.

create app comes with a fourth parameter, installFW1, that when set to true will install the latest stable releast of FW/1. When you are in the working directory you want FW/1 to be installed in, you can pass the parmaeter in with double dashes.

Examples installing FW/1:

Create in current working directory. - fw1 create app MyApp basic --installFw1
Create in a specified directory. - fw1 create app MyApp basic path/to/directory true

To manually install the latest version of FW/1 all you need to do is enter this command in the command line: install fw1. To include the dev release, it's the same command but with that release's version number. For example: install fw1-4.0.0. Note that the version number must reflect what is available on ForgeBox. To install directly from Github you can do this: install https://github.com/framework-one/fw1/archive/develop.zip.


Generating Your Application as a Package

To follow in the CommandBox/ForgeBox scheme of things, a box.json with basic package information is generated with your application. This makes your app capable of being added to ForgeBox for others to use and also makes installing it with CommandBox super simple.

By default this option is set to true but can be altered like so: fw1 create app MyApp basic / false false


Scaffolding Individual Parts of Your Application

Generating Views With fw1 create view

create view takes up to 2 parameters.
  • name (type: string, required) - The name of your view.
  • directory (type: string) - The directory to generate the view in. If it does not exist, it will be created. Defaults to looking for the views directory in your current working directory.
Examples:

Generating Controllers With fw1 create controller

create controller takes up to 6 parameters.
  • name (type: string, required) - The name of your controller.
  • actions (type: string) - The actions to be included in your controller. A comma delimited list of action names can be passed to create multiple actions. By default, only default is generated in the controller.
  • directory (type: string) - The directory to generate the controller in. If it does not exist, it will be created. Defaults to looking for the controllers directory in your current working directory.
  • views (type: boolean) - A flag to determine whether to generate views for each action. Defaults to true.
  • viewsDirectory (type: string) - The directory to generate the controller's views in. If it does not exist, it will be created. Defaults to looking for the views directory in path supplied to the directory parameter.
  • open (type: boolean) - A flag to determine whether to open the generated controller for editing right away. Opens in your machine's default editor. Defaults to false.
Examples:

Create in current working directory. - fw1 create controller myController
