Code examples from the interactive Backbone + CoffeeScript book published by ScriptyBooks LLC.


Each chapter directory already contains the generated JavaScript output from the CoffeeScript and Eco template files. However, you can use the Makefile contained within each chapter directory to rebuild after making any changes. On the command line, simply navigate to the chapter directory and enter make. See the Makefile for convenient watch targets.

Building requires you to install Node.js, npm, CoffeeScript, and Eco. See the Setup and Structure chapter for installation instructions.


You can run the browser-based Mocha/Chai tests by opening the test/index.html page contained within each chapter directory. Running the tests should not require any external dependencies.
