CoffeeScript Question

Functions In CoffeeScript

I'm trying to convert a

function
from Javascript to CoffeeScript. This is the code:

function convert(num1, num2, num3) {
return num1 + num2 * num3;
}


But how I can do that in CoffeeScript?




I'm trying to run the function from an HTML source like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="../coffee/convert.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
convert(6, 3, 10);
</script>


But it won't work and I get an error saying:
ReferenceError: Can't find variable: convert


How to correct this?

Answer

You need to export the convert function to the global scope.
See How can Coffescript access functions from other assets?

window.convert = (num1, num2, num3) ->
  num1 + num2 * num3
