Deprecated in favor of grunt-browserify


Wraps .coffee and .js files into CommonJS modules for client-side usage.

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-commonjs-coffee --save-dev

Then add this line to your project's

grunt.loadNpmTasks 'grunt-commonjs-coffee'

CommonJS loader

You'll need a loader to detect your wrapped packages. You can use this simple CommonJS loader which is based off how loads CommonJS packages.


Configure which files to be copied in your initConfig:

  # ... other configs 
  # wrap my modules with define 
      cwd: 'assets/'
      src: ['**/*.coffee''**/*.js']
      dest: 'dist/'
  # ... other configs 


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
