§Enablement and Configuration
CoffeeScript compilation is enabled by simply adding the plugin to your plugins.sbt file when using the
addSbtPlugin("com.typesafe.sbt" % "sbt-coffeescript" % "1.0.1")
The plugin’s default configuration is normally sufficient. However please refer to the plugin’s documentation for information on how it may be configured.
