I just commited a #CoffeeScript version of the #Backbone.JS Todos example. Complete with annotated source of both plain and CoffeeScript versions.

See it here and at the #GitHub repo.

Just forked and commited some Cake tests and benchmarks for NodeJS’s V8 typed arrays module written by Tom Robinson. Originally there was a bug preventing the use of Float32Array but he’s since fixed it.

With the free time on my hands I’ve been translating Artur Adib’s Backbone hello world examples to  CoffeeScript and have been trying to help Maurice Machado with getting the CoffeeKup Issues and Pull requests out of the way.

With the Backbone hello world stuff, I’ve seen a few translations but they only go so far as doing one or two code examples. Some of them are also not taking advantage of some unique CoffeeScript features which make working with Backbone even easier.

Oh yeah, and a bunch of other stuff but I’ll save that for another post!

Had some more time on my hands and figured I’d throw up a visual implementation of Conway’s Game of Life done with CoffeeScript. It uses raw html but you can flip a var in the code to make it render with HTML5’s canvas pixel image data. Renders fast with Chrome’s V8 and ok with Firefox’s Spidermonkey.

Here is another #contribution to the #CoffeeScript #Cookbook detailing Quake 3’s Fast inverse square root algorithm.

Here is my #contribution to the #CoffeeScript #Cookbook (my fork & pull request).

I also created an #issue saying I believe the cookbook should be using #CoffeeKup or #Jade to keep things in pure JS.
