CoffeScript (1.1.1) on Windows: simple method !

CoffeScript (1.1.1) on Windows: simple method !


To use CoffeScript you need:

  1. Node.js
  2. CoffeeScript
  3. Batch file to run CoffeeScript


STEP 1: Node.js


I’m very very lazy dev… πŸ˜€
And i don’t recompile NodeJs into Windows….. but I’m using v0.4.7 from [many thx]
and install into:

D:>cd ToolsNodeJsbin

D:ToolsNodeJsbin>node --version


STEP 2: CoffeeScript


Use the last version , grab it from
and install into:


Check version

D:ToolsNodeJsbinnode /cygdrive/D/Tools/CoffeeScript/bin/coffee --version
CoffeeScript version 1.1.1

Node.js need unix-path

Step 3: Batch file


I don’t know well bat syntax, and my code is VERY VERY ugly.. but it works πŸ˜›

IF "%e%"=="" GOTO :F
IF "%e:~0,1%"=="-" GOTO :F
FOR /f %%o IN ('%nodeDir%/cygpath.exe -a -u %5') DO SET e=%%o
IF "%f%"=="" GOTO :G
IF "%f:~0,1%"=="-" GOTO :G
FOR /f %%o IN ('%nodeDir%/cygpath.exe -a -u %6') DO SET f=%%o
IF "%g%"=="" GOTO :H
IF "%g:~0,1%"=="-" GOTO :H
FOR /f %%o IN ('%nodeDir%/cygpath.exe -a -u %7') DO SET g=%%o
IF "%h%"=="" GOTO :I
IF "%h:~0,1%"=="-" GOTO :I
FOR /f %%o IN ('%nodeDir%/cygpath.exe -a -u %8') DO SET h=%%o
IF "%i%"=="" GOTO :COMMAND
IF "%i:~0,1%"=="-" GOTO :COMMAND
FOR /f %%o IN ('%nodeDir%/cygpath.exe -a -u %9') DO SET i=%%o

FOR /f %%o IN ('%nodeDir%/cygpath.exe -a -u %coffeeDir%') DO SET p=%%o
%nodeDir%node %p%/coffee %a% %b% %c% %d% %e% %f% %g% %h% %i%


set the PATH environment variable contains a path to coffee.bat

the name of the file is very important,Β  in my case it works well with coffee-rack

LAZY Agnostic Application Generators (padrino-lazy)


Through padrino-lazy, we can include some common properties shared between the model object used a base model object

Padrino is very good framework, and almost follows the DRY principle (Don’t Repeat Yourself) When we need to have some common properties shared between the model object of our ORM, using the generator padrino-gen, We can only include these properties in each model to generate.

I hope this idea will be included in Padrino Framework.
Principle / Step

  1. generate a model
  2. convert the model into base model ( move this model into lib/ folder)
  3. save config file with model base’s list
  4. generate a model from base model
  5. generate a migration file


Step 1-2-3

$ padrino-lazy base --c config_file --b base_model_name --f field_to_create

Step 4-5

$ padrino-lazy model --c config_file --b base_model_name --f field_to_create --m model_name


gem install padrino-lazy --pre


$ padrino-lazy base --c config --b BaseModel --f "create_at:datetime is_active:boolean"

now we have

lib/base_model.rb class BaseModel

include DataMapper::Resource

  # property ,
  property :id, Serial
  property :create_at, DateTime
  property :is_active, Boolean



- base: BaseModel
fields: create_at:datetime is_active:boolean
$ padrino-lazy model --c config --b BaseModel --f "name:string have_children:boolean born:date foo:integer"  --m User


class User <  BaseModel

  # property ,
  property :name, String
  property :have_children, Boolean
  property :born, Date
  property :foo, Integer


migration 1, :create_users do
  up do
    create_table :users do
      column :id, Integer, :serial =&gt; true
      column :name, String
      column :have_children, Boolean
      column :born, Date
      column :foo, Integer

  down do
    drop_table :users


migration 2, :add_basic_model_to_user do
  up do
    modify_table :users do
      add_column :name, String
      add_column :have_children, Boolean
      add_column :born, Date
      add_column :foo, Integer

down do
modify_table :users do
drop_column :name
drop_column :have_children
drop_column :born
drop_column :foo

Known issue

  • VERY VERY alpha code !! (thanks to my pig/lazy side πŸ˜€ )
  • β€”f options need dobule quote around fields
  • β€”b write in CamelCase
  • TESTING only with datamapper and activerecord into linux machine


  • Test all code !
  • Use Padrino::Generators instead of Commander
  • Default config file name (very lazy πŸ˜› )

Original idea from

Original script using imagemagick:

Using scrot :

(defun org-screenshot ()
  "Take a screenshot into a time stamped unique-named file in the same directory as the org-buffer and insert a link to this file."
  (setq filename
          (concat (buffer-file-name)
                  (format-time-string "%Y%m%d_%H%M%S_")) ) ".png"))
  (call-process "scrot" nil nil nil  "-s" filename)
  (insert (concat "[[" filename "]]"))

How to resize LVM logical volumes with ext4 as filesystem

# Unmount the filesystem and check its' LV
umount /mnt/foo
e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/vg0-foo

# Shrink ext4 and then the LV to the desired size
resize2fs -p /dev/mapper/vg0-foo 40G
lvreduce -L 40G /dev/mapper/vg0-foo

# Before continuing, run e2fsck. If it bails because the partition
# is too small, don't panic! The LV can still be extended with
# lvextend until e2fsck succeeds, e.g.:
# lvextend -L +1G /dev/mapper/vg0-foo
e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/vg0-foo

# Resize the filesystem to match the LVs size, check and mount it
resize2fs -p /dev/mapper/vg0-foo
e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/vg0-foo
mount /mnt/foo

umount /mnt/bar

# Extend the LV to use all free space
lvextend -l +100%FREE /dev/mapper/vg0-bar
e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/vg0-bar

# Resize the partition to fill the LV
resize2fs -p /dev/mapper/vg0-bar
e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/vg0-bar
mount /mnt/bar
