I am wondering if anyone has experience using ColdFusion to generate JWT tokens? I found a CF library in JWT.io but frankly I am not familiar with github and am having trouble with the documentation.
The documentation mentions installing the library using CommandBox or “Alternatively the git repository can be cloned into the desired directory.” Does this mean I can simply download the zip file and extract it to a directory of my choice? I’d like to think it’s that simple but the documentation doesn’t read that way. Then the documentation says, “Once the library has been installed, the core jwt component can be instantiated directly: jwt = new path.to.jwtcfml.models.jwt();”. Is this done at the command line in Windows? Is this a one time command? It’s just not very clear what needs to be done to “install” this library. If anyone can assist or is using some other ColdFusion solution I would very much appreciate some guidance.
