Open BlueDragon CFML Manual

The release of Open BlueDragon 1.3 not only added some amazing new features, but also marks the initial release of the Open BlueDragon CFML Manual. The intent of the OpenBD Manual is to serve as a handy reference as well as a learning tool, and not only is it available online but it's included in OpenBD itself so it's available wherever OpenBD 1.3 is installed.

There's a ton of content in the manual already but it's a work in progress, so keep your eye on the online version (as well as the version in the nightly builds) for updates. If you see any gaps in the manual and want to contribute, let us know!

You guys sure put alot of work in there, great. ReadCSV sounds good and lots more there!I'm currently hosting a few cfml scripts at cristaltech an thats all good, but with virual- and cloud hosting becoming cheaper and better i need to have a second look at BD. My first xp with BD was running BD on Google app engine but without MySQL support and with the added google or amazon db api complexity i gave up on the efforts.

Definitely worth another look then--of course with OpenBD you'll have full access to everything you're used to, and we're more than happy to help you get up and running.

Awesome docs site! Not to start a CF vs. OpenBD war, but I think this is WAY better than livedocs, for the simple fact that it's fast. Of course, I did notice a lot of "not yet written" pages, but I'm sure you'll all fill it out as time goes one.

Thanks! Yes, there are a lot of "to be written" pages at this point but we'll get these filled in as quickly as possible, and that's a huge way people can help contribute to the project. So if people have how-tos or see holes that they can fill, let us know. We do keep author attribution attached to all contributions so you'll get credit for any contributions you make.
