Counting lines of code in Jetendo CMS and sites based on it.
There didn't seem to be a reliable open source way to count lines of source code for CFML CFC files so I wrote my own and integrated it with the Jetendo CMS Server Manager. Now you can run a source code line count report across all of the sites or specific directories using the browser interface. It also attempts to separate HTML, JS, CSS from the CFC and CFM files and counts those separately.
When I ran the report on the Jetendo CMS core project, it returned the following line count info:
17,855 html or text lines in cfc/cfm files
275 CSS lines in cfc/cfm files
238 CFC files with 99,529 lines
20 CFM files with 3,274 lines
125,728 total lines
I also noticed that the average web site I have based on Jetendo CMS is about 1000 lines of code. We have a few sites that have over 20,000 lines, but most of the code is in the core Jetendo CMS project.
I've worked hard to move all the CFML code into CFCs in the last year and to reduce the amount of redundant or unnecessary source code so I think that Jetendo CMS is compact and well organized at over 125,000 lines of code. That's a lot of code. It takes a day to write 500 to 1000 lines of code for most programmers, so recreating Jetendo CMS could take well over 1300 man hours. Jetendo CMS was refined over many years with thousands of hours put into it.
