New ColdFusion Builder Extension - Variable Mapper v1.0

So for a while now, I've been thinking about this project and finally, with the new features in ColdFusion Builder Twister Extensions (in public beta now, you should check it out), I was able to finally get it done. Thanks to my friend Luis Majano and the folks in the ColdFusion Builder Development Team for driving these new features, I think we'll see some other great extensions being build by the community.

Variable Mapper let's you quickly manage your variable mappings within your project using the new ColdFusion Builder Twister (now in public beta).

You can get Variable Mapper on RIAForge. I have some other features that will enhance this tool, but meanwhile enjoy v1.0! Feel free to submit any issues or enhancements idea.

One of the neat features is you can quickly create a variable mapping by just highlighting the variable in the editor and right clicking on it, in the menu select Variable Mapper --> Add Variable Mapping...

This will open a quick add dialog window with the variable name already filled in, all you have to do is supply the mapping and click ok. Variable Mapper will update your settings.xml file (where mappings are stored) and refresh the IDE for you without interrupting your work. Just code away!

Now you can quickly get your code insight for your CFCs without having to open project properties everytime!
