This is a LiveScript compiler for the Mimosa build tool. This module is for use with Mimosa 2.0+. This replicates the functionality of the LiveScript compiler that was built into Mimosa before 2.0.

For more information regarding Mimosa, see http://mimosa.io


Add 'livescript' to your list of modules. That's all! Mimosa will install the module for you when you start mimosa watch or mimosa build.


This module will compile LiveScript files during mimosa watch and mimosa build.

LiveScript, by default, wraps compiled JavaScript in a safety wrapper to protect scope. This module turns this wrapping off by compiling bare by default. It does this because it assumes code is already being wrapped in AMD or CommonJS/AMD functions define or require.

All LiveScript configuration options can be provided in the options object. bare is the only one provided values by this module.

Default Config

  lib: undefined
  extensions: ["ls"]
  • lib: You may want to use this module but may not be ready to use the latest version of LiveScript. Using the lib property you can provide a specific version of LiveScript if the one being used by this module isn't to your liking. To provide a specific version, you must have it npm installed into your project and then provide it to lib. For instance: lib: require('LiveScript').
  • extensions: an array of strings, the extensions of your LiveScript files.
  • options: an object, the LiveScript compiler configuration. This object is passed straight to the LiveScript compiler. New properties can be added here to tweak LiveScript compilation.
  • options.bare: a LiveScript compiler option to turn on/off the safety wrapper.
