Command-line tool has no option to output compiled haml-coffee to stdout #44

The command-line tool does not have an option to output the compiled haml-coffee to stdout. This makes it hard to do fun stuff like make an Emacs mode for haml-coffee that integrates with swank-js.

That was fun! Really cool to quickly test a template on the command line. Thanks for the idea. I released 1.8.0 that contains stream redirection.

(From the README)

Stream redirection

You can use Haml Coffee on the command line to enter a template and stop it with Ctrl-D:

$ haml-coffee -p amd
%h1 Hello AMD

which will output the AMD module source code to the console. You either have to set the placement option to amd or
give it a template name like

$ haml-coffee -t name
%p JST rocks!

which will output the JST source code. Now you can also redirect files like:

$ haml-coffee -t name < input.hamlc > output.jst
