But you haven’t actually written a line of code yet. The wait is unbearable, isn’t it? Well, take a deep breath; the time has come. In this chapter, we’re going to install CoffeeScript on your system, get your editor up to speed, and finally run some code!

Instead, hundreds of browsers and server-side frameworks run JavaScript in their own way. Debugging cross-platform inconsistencies is a huge pain. CoffeeScript can’t cure all of these ills, but the compiler tries its best to generate JavaScript Lint-compliant output[4], which is a great filter for common human errors and nonstandard idioms. And if you type something that just doesn’t make any sense, such as 2 = 3, the CoffeeScript compiler will tell you. Better to find out sooner than later.
