The Little Book on CoffeeScript
If you’re just starting out with CoffeeScript a great resource is The Little Book on CoffeeScript. This book will only take about an hour to read but will step you through the ideas behind CoffeeScript, the syntax, compilation and common pitfalls. It’s a great resource and it’s free.
$ npm install js2coffee $ js2coffee file.js > file.coffee
If you’re looking a bit more structure to your CoffeeScript learning head over to CodeSchool. They have a 6-part series titled ‘A sip of CoffeeScript’ that guides through all the syntax and pitfalls of CoffeeScript.
I especially like this series because it really covers all of CoffeeScript. This is another great resource and it’s free to members.
The last resource for learning CoffeeScript is – no surprise – the official CoffeeScript website. Here you will find documentation for the NPM CoffeeScript module as well as an in-depth breakdown of CoffeeScript syntax.
CoffeeScript is a great language and it’s definitely worth it (and easy) to learn. Happy coding.
