How to Setup a ColdFusion Project in IntelliJ IDEA

Written by

I had recently put out a twitter request to see if there are any tutorials out there for setting up a simple ColdFusion project with IntelliJ IDEA and I got no response. I presumed there would be a specific routine for a ColdFusion project but it seems that there isn’t one and after having a play around, there is no need for one, its just too simple.

I have detailed below the steps you take to get a simple ColdFusion project up and running.

Prerequisites are:

(1) ColdFusion (2) IntelliJ IDEA (3) I use this CFML markup plugin which you install within IntelliJ as shown in Step One and Two.
