Getting ready for CoffeeScript using Symfony2 and Assetic
Although I read that CoffeeScript does not depend on Node.js the CoffeeScript website mentions it as a requirement so I installed it first (with root priviledges).
I did this on a Gentoo linux box and while Gentoo is almost never featured in any installation instruction this worked right away so I guess it will be the same experience on all Linux derivates. I should mention that in contrast to the official instructions I did not install for a specific user but for the entire system.
Next install the Node.js package manager npm.
Now finally install CoffeeScript itself.
Next I had to configure Symfony and Assetic in order to utilize CoffeeScript.
And then make use of it.
Now I have to do some CoffeeScripting.
