Plugin enabling ASPAX to handle CoffeeScript files.

A plugin that enables ASPAX to handle CoffeeScript files.

Type this in the folder where you're running ASPAX:

npm install aspax-coffee-handler

If you're running ASPAX in a Node.js application root folder, consider using the --save-dev option to avoid deploying this plugin to your production environment:

npm install aspax-coffee-handler --save-dev

Simply add .coffee source files in aspax.yml:

  - lib.js
  • bare: compile without the top-level function safety wrapper - see more here.

    Basically, this:

      $ -> console.log 'hi!'

    ...compiles to this with the bare flag:

      $(function() {
        return console.log("hi!");

    ...and to this without the flag:

      (function() {
        $(function() {
          return console.log("hi!");
