inuit css: start watch command

  • # November 14, 2013 at 3:21 am

    I’m trying to check if inuit.css is useful for me, but I can’t figure out how to start polling for changes. Normally when using sass I use the “compass watch” command, but inuit has some kind of dedicated watch file that is supposed to make things easier. Quote from the inuit documentation: “watch is a handy little script which makes it easier for you to watch your Sass from the command line; instead of the $ sass –watch … command, you now need only type $ ./watch and the script will do the rest. Running this will compile your project into style[.min].css.”

    So I cd to my project directory and tried typing “$ ./watch”, but to no avail. I have the feeling there’s something very basic I’m missing, maybe because I’m not really used to doing things into cmd so I don’t really understand what it’s supposed to do.

    Don’t type the $. Only type ./watch.

    Still doesn’t do anything, my console is in Dutch but loosely translated it returns: “. is not recognized as an internal or external command, program or batchfile”

    I’m on a windows pc btw.

    It doesn’t hurt to actually read documentation page.

    Also, all you need is Sass installed (which you already have re: Compass)

    _inuit.scss is the one you need to compile.

    I did, if you’d read my post you’d have seen that I quoted from the documentation and that I’m not asking which file I need to compile. Compiling is not the issue perse, when I delete the watch file, create a config.rb file and use the compass watch command it’s starts polling for changes and compiles just fine. But that’s not the way inuit.css is set up and I assume it’s preferable to use it as was meant.
