HOWTO: Node.js, Npm, and CoffeeScript on Mac OS X Lion 10.7

Decided I wanted to brush up on my coffeescript-fu and realised I hadn't set it up since moving to Lion. Setup couldn't be simpler thanks to homebrew

brew install node


Please add /usr/local/lib/node to your NODE_PATH environment variable to have node libraries picked up.

curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

npm install -g coffee-script

The above steps are also detailed here.
