Ruby LiveScript

Ruby LiveScript is a bridge to the official LiveScript compiler.



gem install livescript


This library depends on the livescript-source gem which is updated as a new version of LiveScript is released. (The livescript-source gem's version number is synced with each official LiveScript release.) This way you can build against different versions of LiveScript by requiring the correct version of the livescript-source gem.

In addition, you can use this library with unreleased versions of LiveScript by setting the LIVESCRIPT_SOURCE_PATH environment variable:

export LIVESCRIPT_SOURCE_PATH=/path/to/livescript/extras/livescript.js


The json library is also required but is not explicitly stated as a gem dependency. If you're on Ruby 1.8 you'll need to install the json or json_pure gem. On Ruby 1.9, json is included in the standard library.


The ExecJS library is used to automatically choose the best JavaScript engine for your platform. Check out its README for a complete list of supported engines.
