Add support for the LiveScript language:

:+1: I personally would really like to see LiveScript on jsbin, so hope this gets merged in. :)

Remy Sharp

I'd actually like to see this as a plugin to jsbin - something that you could load as a user and it would permanently affect jsbin. This way it doesn't mean we're accepting all kinds of preprocessors - but allows for communities to extend jsbin themselves.

The problem is server side - what do we do? If you share a url that's processed using LiveScript - and a user doesn't have the plugin, it won't render.

Hmm...need to think about this...

I know we need some kind of advanced settings control panel - but I've not quite worked out what the ui looks like yet.

@gkz The first example from doesn't work when I stick it in jsbin (on your livescript branch). What's up with that?

@remy Since this is mergable, and assuming it works, is there any reason this can't be added with a plugin system something to think about later?

@remy Understood, but is there a reason it's not going to be merged since a plugin system is a bit far off?

Bit slow here, but does livescript work on the server side - i.e. is there a module that adds to `module.exports?

Chia-liang Kao

yes, it can be required and used in node land as well.

Chia-liang Kao

@remy any update on this? ;)
