If you can do it in JavaScript, you can do it better in CoffeeScript. And, since CoffeeScript "compiles down" to JavaScript, your code will fit neatly into virtually any web environment.

Programming in CoffeeScript

In Programming in CoffeeScript, author Mark Bates shows web developers why CoffeeScript is so useful and how it avoids the problems that often make JavaScript code buggy and unmanageable. He guides you through every feature and technique you need to write quality code and how to take advantage of CoffeeScript’s increasingly robust toolset.
