So a few days ago I blogged about my new project, Starfish. Starfish is essentially a ColdFusion debugger that doesn't display information, but rather stores it in the Server scope. You can then display a report on this data in the CF Admin. I'm now happy to report that the initial version is ready for download.

Some BIG WARNINGS - This code is ugly. I'm not kidding. I know that some people have told me they have learned a lot from downloading my code and looking at it. Don't do that. Avoid the code like the plague. Ok, so it's not that bad, but it was written very quickly. I'd call this version more a Proof of Concept than a real application.

That being said - I'd love feedback on it. I've set up a forum for the project, so please use it for your ideas. Also, I've finally gotten around to creating a "Projects" site. You can see the Starfish project here:

All of my projects will have a page like this - as I get around to it. As always, if you like this, visit my wishlist. (I'm still waiting for someone to pick up the Nano - what's wrong you people - too cheap?!?! ;)

Edited: Oops - so I forgot to mention. The zip has NO instructions. Here are some simple instructions for now:

Unpack the zip. profiler.cfm goes in cfusionmx7\wwwroot\web-inf\debug In your cf admin, turn on debugging and select the template. Take the other files and place them in:


Add this line to extensionscustom.cfm in your cf admin folder:

<a href="profiler/index.cfm" target="content">Profiler</a><br>
