Today I tried to to install Compass/Sass on my computer. I have made no head way what so ever. I installed ruby, which works fine. But to run a “gem” command in the command prompt, do I have to have the gems installed? Because when I tried to do that, it wouldn’t do what it should. Could someone please enlighten me on how to install gems on Windows, and maybe even how to get Compass/Sass working on a Windows computer?
Here it is how you can install Compass/Sass on Windows:
1) Install Ruby from http://rubyinstaller.org/
2) Go to Windows Command Line(Start -> cmd)
3) Change directory to Ruby bin Folder. Eg C:Ruby193bin (It will be different to your version and installation directory)
4) Type ruby -v and if it get back with Ruby Version Number. Bravo, you are got to go.
Staying in the same directory (C:Ruby193bin)
5) Type gem install sass (It will install sass)
6) Type gem install compass (It will install compass)
7) Type compass version (If compass is running. It will get back with compass version and other info)
I tired to compile less or sass width shell Command.
So i create a gui, support sass, compass, less and coffeescript. Out of the box to use and cross-platform. And it’s open source.
