AppCode 2016.1 Help

CoffeeScript Support

AppCode provides CoffeeScript support. AppCode recognizes *.coffee files, and allows you to edit them providing full range of coding assistance without any additional steps from your side. CoffeeScript files are marked with icon_CoffeeScript icon.

To run, debug, and test your code you will need it translated into JavaScript which requires a transpiler and Node.js. For more details on CoffeeScript transpilation, see Transpiling CoffeeScript to JavaScript.

    1. Open the AppCode Preferences by choosing AppCode | Preferences, and click page_name under node_name.
