Does Ajaxmin support multilevel source maps?

Does Ajaxmin allow for multilevel sourcemaps, much like Uglify2 does?

What I am thinking of is the following scenario:
  1. Generate JavaScript and Sourcemap from some coffescript impl.
  2. Feed Ajaxmin with said JavaScript and coresponding sourcemap.
  3. Output minified JavaScript with sourcemap mapping all the way back to CoffeeScript file.
Thank you.

Not yet, but it's definitely on the TODO list.
Do you know if the coffeescript tool uses the Google V3 format for the original source map?

Sounds good. You definitely have my vote for this feature.

I have not chosen what CoffeeScript "tool" to use yet, but if performance is fine I am thinking of using the CoffeeScript compiler together with IronJS. This approach will indeed generate sourcemaps of the V3 format.

Do you have any news on when you are going to implement this? This feature would be really useful for us as well.

We have > 140 TypeScript files. We use AjaxMin to combine the .js files that the TypeScript compiler generates to a single JavaScript file.
