Coffee Script 2.0


#1

How do I use Coffee Script 2.0 in my glitch? (https://www.npmjs.com/package/coffeescript)

Does the Glitch platform not support it, yet?


I tried changing my dependency in package.json like so: "coffee-script": "2.0.2"

But I got this error:

I actually wish to use Coffee Script 2’s support for async/await, but perhaps the underlying Node version doesn’t support them, anyways?..

Try "coffeescript": "^2.0.2", it looks like the package name changed at same point. You might also need to change your Node version as I did in that image. Not entirely sure on that point - don’t use much coffee script personally.

Thanks @shindakun!

I didn’t know you could modify the “engines” like that! I would have given up after getting Coffee Script 2.0 working
