Jitter

A simple compilation utility for CoffeeScript.

Jitter watches for new files and changes to files in the CoffeeScript source directory you specify, and compiles new JavaScript files as needed. No flags, no worries, just the sweet CoffeeScript compilation you need when you need it.

Installing

First you'll need to install CoffeeScript, if you don't have it already (if you have it, coffee -v will display the version number). If you have Homebrew, you can just run

brew install coffee-script

Otherwise, instructions can be found at http://github.com/jashkenas/coffee-script.

Once you have CoffeeScript on your path, just download Jitter and run

./install

You've now got Jitter!

To use:

Let's say you have a bunch of *.coffee files in the coffee directory, and want to compile them to the js directory. Then run:

jitter coffee js

Jitter runs in the background until you terminate it (Ctrl+C), watching for new changes.

Or let's say you want to take *.coffee files from the src directory and compile them to the current directory. Then run

jitter src .

For more info, see http://iterative.ly/2010/05/03/introducing-jitter/

Growl notifications

Jitter will display a growl notification whenever compilation fails, provided that you have growlnotify installed and on your PATH. This allows you to run Jitter silently in the background, not worrying about it until you get a syntax error.
