with coffeescript 1.6.3 all was ok. npm install coffee-script@1.6.3 -g fixes this bug, but i need 1.7.1
1.7.0 also buggy.

1.7.0 and 1.7.1 breaks vows npm module #3354

vird commented Feb 6, 2014

fix proposal
insert coffee.register();
specFileExt = /.(-|_).(js|coffee)$/;

Tested and this works. Alternatively:

if(coffee.register) coffee.register()

keeps it backwards compatible.
