I’ve got a backlog of CoffeeScript links to get out. This issue covers my links older than a week, Issue #1 will be following shortly with the latest in CoffeeScript news, articles, and resources.
Code and Resources
CoffeeScript, Meet Backbone.js: A Tutorial - A five part Backbone.js and CoffeeScript tutorial by Adam Spooner. It starts at “Hello, Backbone!” and builds to greater complexity. Its designed to be cloned (or forked) from Github and followed locally, not just read from the site.
The Little Book on CoffeeScript - Another completely open source CoffeeScript book by Alex MacCaw. It’s also a great introduction to the basics of the language and a good go-to reference. The “Bad Parts” section is a good overview of CoffeeScript pitfalls to watch out for.
CoffeeTags - A simple tool for generating Ctags compatible CoffeeScript tags so you can easily explore CoffeeScript projects in vim.
