CommandBox can install projects from the popular site RIAForge.org. You can find projects via the web site and copy the URL slug for a given project to use in your installation.

For example, if the URL to a given project is http://javaloader.riaforge.org/, the slug you'll want to use would be javaloader.


To install a project from RIAForge, use the slug from the website's URL like so:

install riaforge:iwantmylastfm

This will create a folder in your installation directory named after the project containing all the files in the zip.

Info Note this endpoint will only work for RIAForge projects who's download URL points to a zip file.

Package Metadata

Packages installed from the RIAForge endpoint don't have any way to get new version information. They will always show as outdated using the outdated or update commands and their downloads will not get stored in the artifact cache.

If the package has a box.json, its version information will be used, and any dependencies will be installed as well.

In box.json

You can specify packages from the CFLib endpoint as dependencies in your box.json in this format.

    "dependencies" : {
        "iwantmylastfm" : "riaforge:iwantmylastfm"
        "javaloader" : "riaforge:javaloader"
