Rails 3.1 comes with CoffeeScript right out of the box. And now, you can buy our new book on CoffeeScript today.

It’s available now in beta, and is content-complete, but hasn’t been copyedited or indexed yet. We’ll get right on that, and have it out in print by June.

CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development

CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development offers a thorough introduction to this new language, starting from the basics. You’ll learn to use time-saving features like list comprehensions and splats, organize your code into modules with extensible classes, and deploy your work to multiple environments.

Each chapter is example-driven and includes challenging exercises to push your CoffeeScript know-how further. Through the course of the book, you’ll build a fast-paced multiplayer word game—writing both the client (with jQuery) and server (with Node.js) in CoffeeScript. And because the two languages are so deeply intertwined, you’ll deepen your understanding of JavaScript along the way.

CoffeeScript makes it easier than ever to write powerful, standards-compliant JavaScript code. CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development lets you start doing it today.
