gulp-coffee

Compile CoffeeScript files

Packagegulp-coffee
Description Compiles CoffeeScript
Node Version >= 0.9
var coffee = require('gulp-coffee');
 
gulp.task('coffee', function() {
  gulp.src('./src/*.coffee')
    .pipe(coffee({bare: true}).on('error', gutil.log))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./public/'))
});

gulp-coffee will emit an error for cases such as invalid coffeescript syntax. If uncaught, the error will crash gulp.

You will need to attach a listener (i.e. .on('error')) for the error event emitted by gulp-coffee:

var coffeeStream = coffee({bare: true});
 
// Attach listener 
coffeeStream.on('error', function(err) {});

In addition, you may utilize gulp-util's logging function:

var gutil = require('gulp-util');
 
// ... 
 
var coffeeStream = coffee({bare: true});
 
// Attach listener 
coffeeStream.on('error', gutil.log);
 

Since .on(...) returns this, you can make you can compact it as inline code:

 
gulp.src('./src/*.coffee')
  .pipe(coffee({bare: true}).on('error', gutil.log))
  // ... 

The options object supports the same options as the standard CoffeeScript compiler

gulp-coffee can be used in tandem with gulp-sourcemaps to generate source maps for the coffee to javascript transition. You will need to initialize gulp-sourcemaps prior to running the gulp-coffee compiler and write the source maps after.

var sourcemaps = require('gulp-sourcemaps');
 
gulp.src('./src/*.coffee')
  .pipe(sourcemaps.init())
  .pipe(coffee())
  .pipe(sourcemaps.write())
  .pipe(gulp.dest('./dest/js'));
 
// will write the source maps inline in the compiled javascript files 

By default, gulp-sourcemaps writes the source maps inline in the compiled javascript files. To write them to a separate file, specify a relative file path in the sourcemaps.write() function.

var sourcemaps = require('gulp-sourcemaps');
 
gulp.src('./src/*.coffee')
  .pipe(sourcemaps.init())
  .pipe(coffee({ bare: true })).on('error', gutil.log)
  .pipe(sourcemaps.write('./maps'))
  .pipe(gulp.dest('./dest/js'));
 
// will write the source maps to ./dest/js/maps
