    coffee-distiller

    This tool does three things:

    1. combine multiple server side coffee-script file into one coffee file with fake CJS wrapper
    2. compile the combiled coffee file into javascript file
    3. uses google closure compiler or uglify-js2 to minify the javascritp file

    Why and Who need this tool

    This tool is useful for developers who want to distribute a SERVER SIDE coffee-script app in the form of a single javascript file.

    CommonJS module has its built-in module scope, thus developers can not simple combine server side coffee-script files like what they do on the client side.

    This tool introduces a fake CJS module wrapper and merges coffee-script files, as well as keeps scopes of each module.
