Why react package has coffeescript dependency?


#1

I just created clean meteor app and added react there meteor add react. Together with other packages I got coffeescript. Why?

$ meteor add react

Changes to your project's package version selections:

coffeescript        added, version 1.0.9
cosmos:browserify   added, version 0.4.0
jsx                 added, version 0.2.1
react               added, version 0.1.13
react-meteor-data   added, version 0.1.9
react-runtime       added, version 0.13.3_7
react-runtime-dev   added, version 0.13.3_7
react-runtime-prod  added, version 0.13.3_6

That’s because of the cosmos:browserify and it’s written using coffee.

This doesn’t actually affect your app directly since it’s an internal dependency of an internal dependency of the react package.
