A simple gem that connects Barista, the CoffeeScript plugin for Rails 3, with Growl. That way, you get a warning the moment the compiler has a syntax error, allowing you to fix bugs faster.


On a Mac, you'll need to have Growl and growlnotify installed.

On Windows, you should just need Growl for Windows.

Once you've got Growl set up, just add barista and barista_growl to your project's Gemfile and bundle install. The relevant lines of your Gemfile might look like this

gem 'barista'
gem 'barista_growl', :git => ''

When you add barista_growl to your project's Gemfile, the [growl]( gem will be added automatically if not already present.
