Introducing the CFML Complexity Metric Tool

posted under category: Free Code For You on June 8, 2011 by Nathan

A little bit ago I committed my first code to GitHub in the form of a project I’ve been tinkering with, a cyclomatic complexity measuring tool for your CFML apps. It’s just a few files and a snazzy interface that will give you a heatmap kind of display to help highlight areas of complexity in your ColdFusion apps.

It’s a quick toy to play with, and maybe it can help you reduce or refactor some of the more complex aspects of your applications, so give it a try!

Finally, big props to Sean Coyne for already dropping a patch on it. I like this Github stuff, but I don’t understand all the terminology yet.

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
