Installing CoffeeScript

Before we can actually use CoffeeScript, we have to install the CoffeeScript compiler. Since this runs on NodeJS and is installed via the Node package manager (npm), we’ll have to install those first. But don’t worry: no matter what operating system you’re on, this will be a breeze.

About Andrew Burgess
Hi! I'm Andrew Burgess, a Staff Writer here on Tuts+. I've been hanging around the Tuts+ since early 2009; I discovered the site when I was looking for an introduction to jQuery. Since discovering the site, my web development skills have skyrocketed; I think that's the default experience! Now, I've been writing for Tuts+ regularly since late 2009. I've been working with the computers since I was pretty young, and with the web since 2006. I've dabbled with over a dozen programming languages, but I'm most comfortable in JavaScript and Ruby. Currently, I'm a university student, studying computer science.
