rack-coffee

Simple rack middleware for serving up [CoffeeScript][coffee] files as compiled javascript.

Usage

The options behave similarly to Rack::Static:

require 'rack/coffee'
use Rack::Coffee, {
    :root => '/path/to/directory/above/url',  # defaults to Dir.pwd
    :urls => '/javascipts'                     # defaults to '/javascripts'
}

By default, rack/coffee will use a Rack::File to serve any static assets found in this path; you may give :static => false to have misses pass through to your app.

For rails, presuming you've required 'rack/coffee' somehow, stick this in the Rails initializer config block:

config.middleware.use Rack::Coffee, :root => "#{RAILS_ROOT}/public"

Note however that by default this will not play nicely with javascript_include_tag's :cache option, you would need to compile your .coffee files before deploying. Alternately, check out the BistroCar rails plugin that plays nicely with rails asset handling.

Bugs?

Requirements

  • [CoffeeScript][coffee] and node.js which coffee-script now depends on.
  • Rack

History

  • March 6, 2010: release 0.3 REQUIRES COFFEE-SCRIPT 0.5 OR HIGHER

    • CoffeeScript is now written in coffeescript. The included compiler is now based on node.js instead of being hosted in a ruby gem, so we're shelling out to the command-line interpreter. Thanks to Brian Mitchell for doing most of the dirty work, at least as far as ruby 1.9 is concerned.
  • January 27, 2010: release 0.2 BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE

    • replace :url parameter in favor of :urls, now it behaves similarly to Rack::Static (Brian Mitchell)
    • add :static parameter, which when false will disable automatic asset serving of url misses via Rack::File, instead passing through to the app.
    • improve documentation for Rails
    • remove dependency on Pathname, oh if only it were stdlib instead of extlib
  • January 26, 2010: First public release 0.1.
