I’m pleased to say that as of Node 0.6.3 and CoffeeScript 1.1.3, Windows users can now install and use the @coffee@ command just as easily as anyone else! Just download the latest Node installer, then run

npm install -g coffee-script

just like you would under Mac/Linux. You should then be able to run @coffee@ to enter the REPL.

All mention of Cygwin is hereby banished from future editions of the book.

I have Windows7 so you are saying I can now use Node 0.6.3 and CoffeScript 1.1.3?

Totally! Just download the latest Node installer for Windows at, then run the command I gave above.

Edit: Solve the issue myself :) I was trying to run npm from within node.js which didn’t work. When I ran npm by itself, coffee-script installed.
