Guard::CoffeeScript

CoffeeScript guard allows to automatically & intelligently compile your CoffeeScripts when files are modified.

  • Tested on Ruby 1.8.7 & 1.9.2.

Please be sure to have guard installed before continue.

Install the gem:

gem install guard-coffeescript

Add it to your Gemfile (inside test group):
