Did you install coffee-script (and uglify-js)? See the README and Cakefile.

npm -g install coffee-script uglify-js

├── coffee-script@1.1.2 
├─┬ npm@1.0.15 
│ ├── abbrev@1.0.3 
│ ├── node-uuid@1.2.0 
│ ├── nopt@1.0.4 
│ └── semver@1.0.7 
└── uglify-js@1.0.6

Is your module path set in the NODE_PATH environment variable?

I have nodejs installed in my home dir so your path will differ but I put this in my .profile. Find your node_modules directory and use that path instead.
export NODE_PATH=~/node/lib/node_modules


NODE_PATH will probably resolve the issue.

Finally i reinstall node, npm and coffeescript
everything is ok now.

Thanks all and sorry for the reply late.
