FB3Lite Demo App

I've just created and published an exceptionally simple demo app for my FB3Lite framework.  The framework itself is what I feel to be a distillation of Fusebox 3, 4 and 5 down to it's essence, expressed using a, Fusebox 3-like syntax.  The demo is the classic "hello world" example, and can be downloaded as an [...]


UPDATE: Turns out ColdSpring already has this functionality via the 'includeMappedNames' property in recent versions.  The ColdSpring the app I was working on uses an older ColdSpring.  So if you have a recent version of ColdSpring, this CFC is irrelevant; use the built-in one.
