A drop-in replacement for the default Grunt server. It will serve up coffeescript files as javascript. So if you have a file in app/init.coffee, hitting http://localhost:8000/app/init.js will serve up the compiled version of that file.

Setup

You'll need to install grunt-coffeepot first:

npm install grunt-coffeepot

Then modify your grunt.js file by adding the following line:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-coffeepot');

Then add some configuration for the plugin like so:

grunt.initConfig({
  ...
  coffeepot: {
    port: 8000
    base: ./app
  },
  ...
});

port defaults to 8000 and base defaults to the grunt.js directory

To create a continuously running server use:

grunt.registerTask('serve', 'coffeepot watch');
