Hi, would be nice to have an option of just copying all files that have a .js extension to the destination folder. For instance, I may have "app/scripts/lib" dir where I hold js libs such as jQuery. The reason I don't want to put them into the public/javascripts dir is because I believe the whole dir should be added to gitignore. Basically, the behavior I'm talking about is what SASS and LESS used to do for .css files.

Either I couldn't find how or it's currently not possible.

I'm also interested in hearing how to achieve this with barista

I'm working on this now as part of the 1.1 release - I'll update this once it's implemented.

Could you guys take a looker at the current master? You should now be able to simply drop js files along side your coffeescript files and barista will automatically copy them for you.

I tried using the master (gem "barista", :git => "git://"), here's what I get when I load the website in my browser:

uninitialized constant CoffeeScript::Engines

Try again - I think I've fixed this (temporarily at least) on head.

Well, there are no more errors, but .js files are not copied to the respective dirs.
