It would be nice to have your CoffeKup views (or at least CoffeeKup in some easy way) available in client side scripts.

My first obvious idea is to auto-compile all views to a template.js file, and serve CoffeeKup as /zappa/coffeekup.js, but maybe it can be done in better way.

As far as I can tell there's currently no easy/shortcut way to use client side CoffeeKup templates in Zappa.

Right. Let me give an example why this would be a Good Thing. I have a microblogging app. Posts are rendered at two times. The server renders posts in a http handler. The client renders posts in a socket handler (providing real-time updates). Presently the server calls a @view—a CoffeeKup template—with partial. Whereas the client socket handler renders posts with jQuery.

In accordance with Don't Repeat Yourself I want to use same code to render the posts on the server and client. Zappa is probably the first framework where this could be possible.
