Coffeescript code guide

Coffeescript code conventions I try to use.


Always use double quoted strings and interpolation. No ugly + symbols anywhere. Single quotes only used when the string contains double quotes.

string = "Interpolation is awesome. 1+1 = #{1+1}"

Function calls

Avoid parentheses whenever possible, but use parentheses when making chained calls in a single line

pyramid = constructTriangle(4,4,4).grow3D(4) store.fetch "PATCH", {table: true}, (err, response) -> if err return else table.update response

Existential Operator

Always use the existential operator

if response?.rows[0]?.success table.update response.rows[0]
