cbfs is a module for ColdBox that provides abstractions to any file system.

The cbfs module will enable you to abstract ANY filesystem within your ColdBox applications with a human, fluent, and consistent API. You can configure as many disks as you wish to represent file systems in your application. Each disk is backed by a storage provider and configurable within your ColdBox application. Each ColdBox Module can also provide and consume disks in an HMVC fashion.

Never worry about hard-coded paths or how to interact with different file systems or tiers, as your API will remain the same for each system.
