What it does
How to use
Add to your package.json dependencies and run
npm installor run
npm install coffee-cache.
In your entry point file, add the following:require'coffee-cache'
That's it. By default the files are cached in the
./.coffee/directory. If you want to change this, see below.
You can specify the location of the directory to use for the cached files in one of two ways:
Start the process with the
COFFEE_CACHE_DIRvariable set:$ COFFEE_CACHE_DIR=/tmp/coffee-cache coffee app.coffee
setCacheDirmethod on the required module:require'coffee-cache'setCacheDir'../cached/'
Just make sure your process has permission to create the necessary folder or files.
