[GRADLE-2736] Add the filename to an compilation exception in the CoffeeScript plugin Created: 05/Apr/13  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

The CoffeeScript compiler plugin doesn’t currently display the filename of the erring file when an exception is thrown by Rhino. The code change is fairly simple, line 61 of the CoffeeScript compiler worker[1] is currently:

return (String)context.evaluateString(compileScope, "CoffeeScript.compile(coffeeScriptSource, {});", sourceName, 0, null);

To add the file name the code should look like:

compileScope.put("sourceName", compileScope, source);
return (String)context.evaluateString(compileScope, "CoffeeScript.compile(coffeeScriptSource,

{ filename: sourceName }

);", sourceName, 0, null);

This allows the actual CoffeeScript compiler running in Rhino to have access to the name of the source file which already puts the file name in the error message. If you need the patch in a different form I’d be happy to upload a Git diff.
