This tool is no longer maintained. If you need to transition your codebase from it, a codemod is available to do so: cjsx-codemod
This project started as a way for me to explore how JSX could fit into Coffeescript syntax, as a quickly hacked together prototype. While I never really promoted it, it quickly took on a life of its own, and before long people were asking for it to support all kinds of different use cases. On top of that I had no experience writing parsers, so the result is something with insurmountable limitations.
As I eventually stopped using Coffeescript I ended up neglecting this project, but as people were using it I didn't want to kill it. I really should have, however, because it meant that people were using a crappy, ill-conceived, unmaintained tool. Now, long overdue, I'm putting it out to pasture.
Original readme follows:

when you compile your app, pass

$ browserify -t coffee-reactify neat-ui.coffee > bundle.js
you can omit the
.cjsx extension from your requires if you add the extension to browserify's module extensions:
$ browserify -t coffee-reactify --extension=".cjsx" --extension=".coffee" neat-ui.coffee > bundle.js
providing the transform option
coffeeout: true will passthrough the transformed
.coffee files with the
this means you can use a different coffee compiler transform such as icsify or coffeeify in conjunction with this transform.

this is a workaround for the fact that other transform modules like
.cjsx files due to the different file extension.
$ browserify -t [ coffee-reactify --coffeeout ] -t coffeeify neat-ui.coffee > bundle.js
