Vows and CoffeeScript

CoffeeScript is a really nice way to write JavaScript code. Combined with NodeJS you are empowered by a very fast platform to develop server-side applications. Of course, you want to test these apps as well. Vows is really great way to do this. Unfortunately it’s not straight forward (yet) to set up NodeJS + CoffeeScript + Vows. ~ First off, make sure you have CoffeeScript and Vows installed. Here I install them globally so you can use the coffee and vows command line utilities.
