I have been using ColdEXT from Justin Carter for a little while now and I love it. It made the difficult task of writing EXT a breeze. My only issue was that if I was using Dreamweaver for coding there was no tag insight. I had to do all my coding for ColdEXT in CFEclipse.

Granted, not the end of the world as I prefer to use CFEclipse. However, I can't use it all the time and I don't like having to edit the same file in 2 different editors.

So, I took a few days of figuring out how Dreamweaver did tag libraries. Then I spend more time going over the tag library xml doc that comes with ColdEXT. I then spent some time writing some ColdFusion code. I was able to convert the XML doc to a query and generate the necessary vtm files to create a Dreamweaver tag library.

I have not done extensive testing with every tag. I did random checks of the result and it all looks good. So, here it is. Let me know if you run into any issues. Installation instructions are included in the zip. I don't have a MAC so I can't create instructions for that OS. If anyone has the OS and can modify the instructions let me know and I will update them.
