A small Flask extension that adds CoffeScript support to Flask.
A small Flask extension that makes it easy to use CoffeeScript with your Flask application.
You can activate it by calling the coffee2js function with your Flask app as a parameter:
from flaskext.coffee2js import coffee2js coffee2js(app, js_folder=’js’, coffee_folder=’src/coffee’)
This will intercept the request to js_folder and compile de file if is necesary using the files from coffee_folder.
When you deploy your app you might not want to accept the overhead of checking the modification time of your .coffee and .jss files on each request. A simple way to avoid this is wrapping the coffee2js call in an if statement:
- if app.debug:
- from flaskext.coffee2js import coffee2js coffee2js(app)
If you do this you’ll be responsible for rendering the .coffee files into .js when you deploy in non-debug mode to your production server.
