Coffeebar Build Status

NPM

Coffeebar is a simplified build tool for CoffeeScript that makes compiling, watching and concatenating your files a breeze. Coffeebar is built to be cross-platform from the ground up and can be used from the command line or via it's public API.

Features

  • Generates source maps
  • Literate CoffeeScript support
  • Concatenation of multiple source files
  • Robust file watching
  • Cross-platform
  • Minification
  • Source maps generated from a concatenated file point back to the original files
  • Compiler error messages show the original source line for concatenated files

Installation

Install globally via npm:

$ npm install -g coffeebar

Usage

Usage: coffeebar [options] [path ...]

Options:

  -h, --help           output usage information
  -V, --version        output the version number
  -b, --bare           compile without a top-level function wrapper
  -M, --map            create source maps
  -m, --minify         minify output files
  -o, --output <path>  output path
  -s, --silent         suppress console output
  -w, --watch          watch files for changes

Examples

Compile a single file:

$ coffeebar test.coffee

Compile an entire directory tree to an output directory:

$ coffeebar -o lib src 

Compile and join all input to a single file with a source map:

$ coffeebar -Mo joined.js src 

Compile and watch for changes:

$ coffeebar -wo lib src 

API

coffeebar(inputPaths, [options])

Compiles all .coffee files found in inputPaths, which can be a single string or an array of strings.

Options:
  • bare - CoffeeScript compiler option which omits the top-level function wrapper if set to true.
  • minify - Minify output files. Defaults to false.
  • output - The path to the output file. If the path has a file extension, all files will be joined at that location. Otherwise, the path is assumed to be a directory.
  • silent - Suppress all console output. Defaults to true.
  • sourceMap - Generate source maps for output files. Not currentl compatible with minification. Defaults to false.
  • watch - (boolean) Watch all files and directories for changes and recompile automatically. Defaults to false.
Example:
var coffeebar = require('coffeebar')

coffeebar('src', {output: 'lib/app.js'})

Running the tests

To run the test suite, invoke the following commands in the repository:
