Preprocessor to compile CoffeeScript on the fly.


This plugin ships with Karma by default, so you don't need to install it, it should just work ;-)

The easiest way is to keep karma-coffee-preprocessor as a devDependency in your package.json.

  "devDependencies": {
    "karma": "~0.10",
    "karma-coffee-preprocessor": "~0.1"

You can simple do it by:

npm install karma-coffee-preprocessor --save-dev


Following code shows the default configuration...

// karma.conf.js
module.exports = function(config) {
    preprocessors: {
      '**/*.coffee': ['coffee']

    coffeePreprocessor: {
      // options passed to the coffee compiler
      options: {
        bare: true,
        sourceMap: false
      // transforming the filenames
      transformPath: function(path) {
        return path.replace(/\.js$/, '.coffee');

If you set the sourceMap coffee compiler option to true then the generated source map will be inlined as a data-uri.
