There have been reports that official support for CoffeeScript 
will be included in the next point release of Ruby on Rails.[4] 

'next' as in which version? Most of this article is not time-independent. as in, next year it will be wrong, and a year ago it was wrong. Say 'as of June 2010...' or something like that to qualify now-dependent statements. Think of someone reading this 5 or 10 years from now - your words will still be here.

  • Good point, but moot now that the official announcement has been made. Proper citation (a tweet by a Rails Core Team member, linking to a commit in the official Rails repository) included. --Trevor Burnham (talk) 15:55, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Dialects, forks, derivatives[edit]

One should probably talk about Coco, a dialect of CoffeeScript, and furthermore LiveScript, a fork of Coco. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:12, 25 July 2012 (UTC)


The example of coffeescript isn't really mind blowing and doesn't show the advantages, disadvantages or construct differences of using CoffeeScript instead of JavaScript. Why not give a simple example of list comprehension or classes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:20, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
