<p>In the 2016 release of ColdFusion, we had introduced support for Command Line Interface. In this release, we have introduced support for Read-Eval-Print-Loop (REPL). REPL, a shell, is an interactive programming environment that takes single user inputs, evaluates them, and returns the result to the user. A REPL is like command line shells. How to start ColdFusion in REPL mode? Open a terminal and navigate to <ColdFusion Home Directory>\cfusion\bin> Enter cf.bat/cf.sh. It opens REPL mode in the terminal. What all […]</p>

Apart from repl which is great, the [adobe coldfusion] product should be renamed to [adobe confusion]. A tool built for the web for which the support pages present code non formatted, without highlighting and without indentation. Really guys? even with min-effort this should be priority one for support pages.

Petros, I think you're reaching here. For one thing, other recent blog posts from Adobe about new features in CF2018 have indeed had indentation of code (though not color coding, which would be nice but is not imperative). See for instance: https://coldfusion.adobe.com/2018/07/oop-and-coldfusion-part-2/ Second, the extended code example above (about using CFSCRIPT) really has nothing that logically needed to be indented. Third, if you may be referring to the if statement, that's discussing how to continue on a new line what logically should be on the previous line. Indeed, and finally: this is a post about using a command-line REPL. Do you really bother with indentation when typing code at the command line?
