Installing Dart and CoffeeScript

Giving a talk on Monday, June 18 on CoffeeScript and Dart that will mostly be a code-along.

For CoffeeScript, make sure you can run coffee from a command line:

  1. node, download here:
  2. npm, now included in node
  3. CoffeeScript, use the CoffeeScript with Node and npm instructions (basically one line, but...)
  4. Some kind of programmer's text editor. I'll be using jEdit, but I'd recommend VIM or TextMate as they both have great CoffeeScript integration.

For Dart, install the Dart editor, which is an IDE with a browser (Dartium).

  1. Dart editor, download here:
  2. Unpack the archive someplace and run the program from there.

From Boy Genius : Apple has again tweaked section 3.2.2 of the agreement, adding in a loophole which will allow them to approve certain interpretive code tools. The old section 3.2.2 read like this:  No interpreted code may be downloaded or used in an Application except for code that is interpreted a
