    Banshee

    A speedy tool for combining and compressing your JavaScript, CoffeeScript, CSS and LESS source files.

    Banshee combines your source files into a single script or stylesheet to reduce HTTP overhead and make development easier. It has built-in support for Sprockets-style dependency syntax (#= require x) and a lightning-fast, built-in watch mechanism to detect changes to your source files and recompile on the fly.

    Requires node v0.8+

    Requiring Source Files

    Banshee supports Sprockets-style requires, with one exception. Instead of using require_tree, you can simply use require and Banshee will automatically detect if the path is a source file or a directory. Please note, doing require on a top level directory will be recursive through its sub-directories.

    Syntax: (JavaScript)

    //= require lib/some_directory
    //= require other_file.js

    Syntax: (CoffeeScript)

    #= require lib/some_directory 
    #= require other_file.coffee 

    Syntax: (CSS)

    /*= require lib/some_directory */
    /*= require other_file.css */

    Syntax: (LESS) Uses normal LESS import statements.

    @import 'lib/dependency1';
    @import 'dependency2';

    Paths used in require statements are evaluated relative to the file which contains them.
