Creating a Symbolic Link with ln -s What Comes First? [+]
ColdFusion, Java, and Web Development | 7/13/20 1:30 PM | Linux
One thing I've had to google more times than I'd like to admit is the path argument order for the ln command. What comes first in the ln -s command on linux or Mac? So I thought I'd write a little blog entry for future me to find. Here's an example: ln -s /real/path /linked/path To answer my own question, you put the existing path first (source file), then the link path (target file) you want to create se

Beyond the Basics of Using AWS S3 in CFML: File Versioning in S3 Buckets [+]
Brian Klass | 7/13/20 9:30 AM
When editing files of any kind, users of modern applications expect to have access to previous versions of the file, and undo work that they don’t like or made in error. Implementing a versioning system isn’t easy, especially when file systems are generally set up to only allow one “copy” of any given file. It’s often up to you, the developer, to handle the versioning and ensure that new versions of uploaded files don’t overwrite older ones. Fortunately, it’s exactly this kind of undi

This is what "Chemo Day" is for me [+]
Trunkful.com | 7/9/20 6:06 PM | this.Blog
This is what "Chemo Day" is for me. I am on a three week chemo cycle. I have chemo one day in week one and one day in week two. The third week I have off to let my body recover some. * Show up god awful early. (note my work schedule in the IT field has always had me working late, nights, over nights etc. but never early AM's.) * A nurse accesses the chemo port in my chest. I had to have surgery back in December to place a Power Port in my chest that provides direct access to

Building a Vue Application with Serverless on Netlify [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/7/20 10:00 PM | vuejs, javascript, serverless
This is something that is - surely - documented in a thousand other blog posts, but it's not something I've tried yet with Netlify so I thought I'd give it a go. It was this or watch another episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" on Netflix and obviously I chose this instead. I'm glad I did because it worked surprisingly well with no real hiccups. I just needed to "see" it myself at least once to be sure it worked.

How to Enable your Jamstack Site to have a "Rain Day" [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/6/20 2:00 PM | eleventy, static sites
So this is perhaps a bit of an edge case, but I was thinking about it this weekend and decided to build a quick demo of it just to see if it would actually work. Imagine a simple Jamstack site for a farmer's market. Now imagine that this particular market is closed when there is bad weather. What if we could build a Jamstack site that checked the weather in the morning and added a warning to the site that they may be closed due to rain? Here's how I implemented this idea.

CFDocument Intelligently Reuses Repeated Image Objects In Lucee CFML 5.3.4.80 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 7/6/20 8:30 AM | ColdFusion
Ben Nadel looks at how repeated Image objects affect file-size in the CFDocument tag in Lucee CFML 5.3.4.80. It seems that an image is embedded once and then intelligently reused as needed. This should guide how different versions of an image are implemented within a single PDF document....

Convert Microsoft LDAP ObjectGuid from base64 to Python UUID [+]
The Harmonious Programmer | 7/2/20 4:30 PM | Active Directory, base64, Microsoft, Python, SAML2, UUID
I needed to convert an objectGuid from Microsoft AD which was provided to me in base64. What I did not know is the Microsoft uses little-endian UUIDs instead of big-endian like the rest of world uses. This caused issues trying to convert the binary to UUID. Luckily, Python's UUID has bytes_le (little-endian) just for this use case. Blogging this for the future.

While most may know that CF has always been free for development use, did you know that folks in education (students, teachers, and staff) can obtain CF Standard licenses, for use in learning (though not production)? This topic is covered in a section in the available ColdFusion FAQ. There’s an FAQ for CF Standard and
