Couple of years back, we were using ColdFusion Builder as our primary development IDE. We used only CFB 1 & 2, haven't tried CFB 3 so far. But CFB 1 & 2 were exceptionally slow and bloated.
An year back, We moved from ColdFusionBuilder to SublimeText, We knew it is not full fledged IDE, it is just an text code editor. After using it for a couple of weeks, we never turned back to CFB. It is freaking light weight. Please check CF Builder vs SublimeText 2 resources comparison by Chris Tierney
|CF Builder 2.0.1||185,420 K||525 MB|
|Sublime Text 2.0.1||47,232 K||20 MB + 67.5MB App Data|
But we missed offline documentation in the ColdFusion builder in our new code editor. It is hard to remember all cftag attributes & function arguments list. Ctrl+F1 is a handy short cut to see the dynamic help in ColdFusion builder. We started using Dominic Watson's Cf Quick Docs Launcher plugin to achieve this. It is very simple sublimetext plugin which will select the word at the cursor & do search in CF Quick Docs. But CF Quick Docs is not offline & it is not actively updated.
We have 2 offline options for CFML documentation. First one, you can find it in, inside of your ColdFusion builder installation path
plugins/com.adobe.coldfusion.help_188.8.131.522422 You can see
toc.xml file & docs folder inside this. Create a folder called "Sublime_CF_help" in your ColdFusion wwwroot & place these toc.xml file & docs folder. We wrote small cfm script to parse & search the neccessary tag / function from toc.xml
Finally modify the Cf Quick Docs Launcher plugin python code to use any one of these 2 options
We have tried this & it is simply awesome. Dash supports offline access to 130+ API documentation sets. If you are in Mac, we suggest to use this.
