Create a Node.js module with grunt-init, including coffeescript watching and mocha testing


If you haven't already done so, install grunt-init.

Once grunt-init is installed, place this template in your ~/.grunt-init/ directory. It's recommended that you use git to clone this template into that directory, as follows:

rm -rf ~/.grunt-init/node-coffee && git clone ~/.grunt-init/node-coffee && rm -rf ~/.grunt-init/node-coffee/.git

(Windows users, see the documentation for the correct destination directory path)


At the command-line, cd into an empty directory, run this command and follow the prompts.

grunt-init node-coffee

Note that this template will generate files in the current directory, so be sure to change to a new directory first if you don't want to overwrite existing files.
