# **CoffeeKup** lets you to write HTML templates in 100% pure
# [CoffeeScript](
# You can run it on [node.js]( or the browser, or compile your
# templates down to self-contained javascript functions, that will take in data
# and options and return generated HTML on any JS runtime.
# The concept is directly stolen from the amazing
# [Markaby]( by Tim Fletcher and why the lucky
# stiff.

# CoffeeScript-generated JavaScript may contain anyone of these; but when we

# the `Function()` constructor, it loses access to its parent scope and
# consequently to any helpers it might need. So we need to reintroduce these
# inside any "rewritten" function.
