CoffeeScript Workshops

This is part of the javascript/coffeescript workshops, given on 2011-11-01 and 2011-11-09 by Iain Hecker at Finalist.


First, clone this repository.

To make things easier, I've included a script to get you up and runnig.


If you're running on Ubuntu, simply run:



You'll need development headers (through Xcode), python and curl.

If you're using Homebrew, it's probably best to install Node.js via that.

brew install node

After that, resume normal installation:


In a Virtual Machine

I've also included possibility to install it in a VM.

Install Ruby and VirtualBox, then run:

gem install vagrant
vagrant up

This will take a lot of time the first time, because it will download Linux and compile Node.js.

Login to your freshly created VM:

vagrant ssh

Go to the project directory:

cd /vagrant

From here you can run the rest of the scripts.

If you're done, don't forget to shut down the VM with vagrant halt.

Running specs

Run the specs of a sample project:

jasmine-node --coffee DIRECTORY

So the example specs (to see if everything installed correctly):

jasmine-node --coffee example

It has one passing spec and one failing spec. Try fixing it as a first exercise.
