In Detail

CoffeeScript is a JavaScript compiler. CoffeeScript brings many things to the table that are lacking in JavaScript itself. This includes a class and module system, a syntax that is cleaner, less terse, and well structured, and list comprehensions that make working with collections of data more enjoyable. CoffeeScript can be used as not only a tool for the Web, but also as a tool for day-to-day DevOps type tasks (for example, file processing, working with databases, and more).

This practical guide contains a wide range of recipes demonstrating how CoffeeScript can be used while developing the entire stack of an application. With recipes that range from easy and intermediate to advanced, there is something here for anyone looking to escape the common pitfalls of JavaScript and develop in a clean and expressive language.
