node package manager


Watches your .coffee files for changes and compiles to the JavaScript file specified in "#@compilesTo ".


Watches a directory or file for .coffee files with #@compileTo outputFile directives, and compiles those files when they change. This tool is meant for small projects that don't want to deal with Cakefiles and/or muffin.

Works on nested directories, single files, and for multiple inputs. Detects new files as they are created.


Single file: coffee-roaster examples/ Directory: coffee-roaster examples/ Multiple inputs: coffee-roaster examples somewhereElse some/


  • Tests
  • Loosen up @compileTo; right now it expects strictly "#@compileTo ".
