  • no cache; manage it on your own.
  • must compile templates before rendering them
  • no support for browsers, frameworks
  • no cli tools
  • no scope option (use context instead)



template = ck.compileFile './'
html = template context: user: {}
console.log html

correctly handle booleans:

template = -> input autocomplete: off
console.log ck.compile(template)() #<input>
console.log coffeekup.render template #<input autocomplete="false" />

IE conditionals:

ie 'lt IE8', ->
  link href: 'ie.css', rel: 'stylesheet'


ck doesn't add slashes to self closing tags. I'm not actually sure what's right, see this for some reading....

recently another attempt was made at minimizing the coffeecup engine called coffee-templates. it was inspired by and uses some of the same techniques as ck, so may be worth a look, as well.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
