Welcome To

Welcome to the Common Function Library Project. The purpose of the Common Function Library Project ( is to create a set of user-defined function (UDF) libraries for ColdFusion 5.0 and higher. These libraries are open source and may be used and modified to your liking. Functions range from email format checking to encryption routines. These UDFs can greatly speed up development time as well as add new and powerful features to your web site.

Anyone can add their code to the project by simply using our submission form. You must be running ColdFusion 5.0 (or higher) to run these libraries. For more information about ColdFusion, please visit Adobe's ColdFusion product page. If you have any suggestions or comments, please contact me. was created by Raymond Camden. UDF editing, approval and grunt work done by Adam Cameron.


You can submit your own UDF now. Before doing so, please search the site and ensure we haven't released a similar UDF already. Also note that your UDF may be modified to meet CFLib standards.

UDFs will be processed and checked manually. This will take some time. Sorry.


Welcome to CFLib 2016. CFLib is now static!
