grunt-iced-coffee

Compile IcedCoffeeScript files to JavaScript.

Direct 'drop-in' replacement for 'grunt-contrib-coffee' albeit using IcedCoffee 'defer' and 'await' keywords. Greatly reduce complexity of writing asynchronous ops in coffeescript.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-iced-coffee --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-iced-coffee');

This plugin was designed to work with Grunt 0.4.x. If you're still using grunt v0.3.x it's strongly recommended that you upgrade, but in case you can't please use v0.3.2.

Run this task with the grunt coffee command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide.

Type: String Default: linefeed

Concatenated files will be joined on this string.

Type: boolean

Compile the JavaScript without the top-level function safety wrapper.

Type: boolean Default: false

When compiling multiple .coffee files into a single .js file, concatenate first.

Type: boolean Default: false

Compile JavaScript and create a .map file linking it to the CoffeeScript source. When compiling multiple .coffee files to a single .js file, concatenation occurs as though the 'join' option is enabled. The concatenated CoffeeScript is written into the output directory, and becomes the target for source mapping.
