Installing WireBox

WireBox can be installed as a standalone framework or included with the latest ColdBox Platform release, so it is unnecessary if you are within a ColdBox application.

System Requirements

  • Adobe ColdFusion 2018+

  • Lucee 5+

Standalone Installation

You can leverage CommandBox to install the standalone version of WireBox with a simple command:

# Latest Version
box install wirebox

# Bleeding Edge
box install wirebox@be

This will install WireBox as a dependency in your application into a folder called wirebox. You can then leverage the standalone namespace within your application: wirebox.system.ioc.


You will need the following mapping that points to the folder you installed wirebox into:

this.mappings[ "/wirebox" ] = "";

This will ensure that the appropriate libraries can find each other.

Remember that this only applies to the standalone approach.
