Have you used CoffeeScript yet? I just started playing with it and so far I think it’s great! In this screencast, I walk through how to use CoffeeScript in a Grails 2.0 application by building a simple “continuous-scrolling” page. Please let me know in the comments if you find the screen-cast valuable or not!

The source-code for this screencast is available on GitHub: https://github.com/bobbywarner/grails-coffeescript-demo

This screencast was inspired by Ryan Bates’ RailsCasts Episode #114. I borrowed some of his excellent CoffeeScript example code.

  1. Amazingly simple and to the point … I’m surely going to try coffee script in my current project.

  2. Superb stuff :)

  3. Note you are mistaken about the coffeescript-resources plugin being “specifically designed to work with the resources framework”. However the plugin author intends to make it so in the future (see https://github.com/edvinasbartkus/grails-coffeescript-resources/issues/5).

  4. @Robert, thanks for the clarification about integration with resources.

  6. Cool Demo! Thank you!

  7. Very clear, and useful. Loved it, despite the pronunciation of “pagination”. 😉

  8. @Eric Yea, that was my bad. I just didn’t feel like taking the time to edit or re-record because of it though, ha! Glad you liked the video anyway! :)
