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.
