BistroCar serves up CoffeeScript from within your Rails application.
Add it as a gem dependency to you Rails application:
Add your CoffeeScript files to app/scripts. Then in your layout or wherever else suits you, add:
<%= coffee_script_bundle %>
<%= coffee_script_bundle :mode => :inline %>
You can set this for the entire application:
BistroCar.mode = :inline
You're encouraged to create only a single bundle, but sometimes you might find it useful/necessary to create multiple bundles for different parts of your application. In that case you can create a directory structure like this:
+ app + scripts + admin - admin.coffee - other_admin.coffee - application.coffee
Now you can require both bundles like this:
<%= coffee_script_bundle :admin %>
BistroCar.minify = true
This is done automatically for the production environment.
You can also render CoffeeScript inline from within your erb templates like this:
<% coffee_script do %> x: x => x * 2 y: y => y + 2 <% end %>
