Building LR is quite problematic when following README instructions #5

Love LR. Can't work without it. Since the App Store version is far behind the GH one, I tried to compile LR on my own, but came across multiple problems.

When following instructions from devel we'll get this:

$ iced -I inline -c cli
File not found: cli.coffee

When following instructions from master we'll get the following:

$ rake backend
rake aborted!
cannot load such file -- tasks/backend
/Users/oskar/Desktop/LiveReload2/Rakefile:5:in `<top (required)>'

Any tips on why the instructions are causing these issues?

Hey, there's an off-MAS build on http://go.livereload.com/mac, it will recognize your App Store license. It should correspond to the ‘master’ branch. The ‘devel’ branch reflects the current LiveReload 3 progress, and is unfortunately Windows-only for the time being (will be ported back to Mac soon).

The instructions in master should work, not sure why tasks/backend is not found. Gotta check some time (later).

Thanks Andrey, will use the off-MAS build for now! Keep up the great work, can't wait for LR3 - any plans on adding the option to use system binaries (e.g. coffeescript) instead of the plugged ones?

Certainly. I can't really say if it will be in 3.0 or in 3.x for some x > 0, but it will be there. Right now we're still building a solid architecture and going for a feature parity with Mac 2.x first.

Closing this because of irrelevant history, but I've opened #42 for README cleanup.

Issue can be solved by using require './tasks/backend' instead.
