grunt-coffee-build

Builds hybrid coffeescript/javascript commonjs projects to run anywhere transparently(amd, commonjs or plain browser load), generating combined source maps and optionally browserifying dependencies.

grunt-coffee-build

Compiles Coffeescript files, optionally merging and generating source maps.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-coffee-build --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-coffee-build');
grunt.initConfig
  clean:
    tests: ['build']
 
  coffee_build:
    options:
      wrap: true
      sourceMap: true
      disableModuleWrap: ['index.coffee']
    file:
      cwd: 'test'
      src: '**/*.coffee'
      dest: 'build/build.js'
    directory:
      ext: '.js'
      expand: true
      flatten: false
      cwd: 'test'
      src: '**/*.coffee'
      dest: './build/all'

When passing a filename to 'dest', the task will merge all files, parsing 'require' calls to take dependency order into consideration. It will also replace require calls with automatically generated identifiers representing the modules(using the file path) so it can be used without commonjs.

Since when combining every file is wrapped, the disableModuleWrap option can be used to override this behavior for certain files.

When passing a directory to 'dest', it will compile each source file individually.
