First steps with CoffeeScript
I’ve been intending to use CoffeeScript for ages now. Rails adopting it was the kick up the arse I needed to go and learn it.
I got a copy of CoffeeScript as a Christmas present from Orlaith and started reading it today.
First thing was to rewrite the well known Node.JS simple server in CoffeeScript. Hardly a massive task but good first steps to get a feel for the syntax etc.
Below is the CoffeeScript for the simple node server (nodeserver.coffee)
I know which version I prefer.
