Chapter 34. Using ColdFusion > Using ColdFusion Studio

Using ColdFusion Studio

As you've seen throughout the chapter, CFML code coexists in the same file as HTML code. Therefore, ColdFusion templates have to be plain text files, just as HTML documents are. So technically, all you need to write ColdFusion templates is an editor that can write out plain text files. This means that you could compose your templates using Notepad, Microsoft Word, or any HTML authoring tool that enables you to edit the raw code.

Although any text editor is fine, you should seriously consider using Allaire's ColdFusion Studio as your development tool of choice for ColdFusion templates. Based on the popular HTML authoring program HomeSite, ColdFusion Studio comes with many helpful features that directly support you as you write CFML code. This final section of the chapter introduces you to ColdFusion Studio and how to use Studio to make your development work much less tedious.
