Still more CFEclipse Resources

Note: This blog post is from 2007. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
I've found yet a few more CFEclipse resources (adding to those I've talked about) that may interest some. Rather than just add them as comments to that entry, I figured I'd create a new entry.

CFEclipse Wiki

First and foremost, I wonder if you, like me, may miss the many valuable resources in the CFEclipse wiki, based at the cfeclipse.org site. The thing is, it's not mentioned very prominently there, even on the support page (something I've just pinged Mark about, so perhaps that will change by the time you read this). It's only mentioned on the support page within the paragraph describing trac (which is primarily for project mgt and bug tracking).

On the wiki, you'll find several articles on installation, plugins, configuration (including shortcuts), features, troubleshooting, and more.

Old Spikefu CFEclipse Resources

On a related subject, you may come across links to a reference at www.spike.org.uk/cfeclipse/space/, setup by Spike Milligan, formerly of the CFE team, whose SpikeFu site had quite a few CFE resources. Requests for these now fail, but for any who like to see such historical info, I've found it archived at the great web.archive.org site at http://web.archive.org/web/20060621220649/www.spike.org.uk/cfeclipse/space/.

Similarly, you can find the archive of Spike's blog with many historical references to the evolution of CFEclipse.

Ryan Stewart's Getting Started Guide

In early 2006, Ryan Stewart put together a guide to "Getting Started With CFEclipse", available in both HTML and PDF.

Prismix CFEclipse Seminar Notes

Finally, I came across this page of notes that I'd not seen before. I don't think there's anything there that's not elsewhere, but just in case, here it is:

Charlie - you can add links to the wiki you know :) You just need to register with Trac and you can edit anything!

If you have not already added these - I'll add them this morning!
for what it's worth, I didn't even know about the wiki until I read Charlie's post here.

Mark just added a 'wiki' link to the main nav on the cfeclipse.org site so hopefully it will be easier to get to in the future!
Thanks, both of you. The comments make the post so worthwhile.

First, Jim, no, I had not added them, so if you have great, or if you want to, feel free. I didn't think to add them to the Wiki only because I only found it yesterday.

Indeed, thanks Michael for sharing that you'd only now found them due to this post. And it's great to hear, Jim, that Mark has added a link to it. As I said, I dropped a note to him asking to consider that. So both those points of feedback are very gratifying.

I didn't mention here (though I did in another email to Mark) that I would often find links to cfeclipse.org/wiki, which would fail (since it was moved). I've asked if he might be able to change things so that such a URL redirects to the correct location. That, also, may help more people find it when linked to from older blog posts.

This is just the start of a few things I have planned to help people make the leap to CFEclipse. It's often these little things that matter, but there are indeed bigger fish to fry, and I've got my nets in the water. :-)
