I am Windows user, struggling with installation of SASS
I managed to install ruby + I have Github account
do not know how to use the gem install sass
got it cloned in my local folder using the button :]
so now I should use the console to install it I believe … but
… I have now like 4 consoles !
1.] original GIT before I knew about the Github for Win app
2.] new console that got installed with that app
3.] Ruby command line
4.] and a second one with Ruby
from which one should I use the install command guys?
I do not have Mac, I know it is easier there
I am not a coding guy much (like super hardcore programmer more of a designer, html, css, …)
have no experience with Linux and / or Ruby so far this much
could anyone help to get this up and running please?
in some some “casual player” way I could as a total newbie understand?
I have yet to attempt this, but I saved this URL which makes it sound easy
Update: Even better!… check out Scout
@Mottie owe you a beer !
after a month I managed to solve that
1.] COMPASS APP = easier, less typing
link you posted is super cool, the app as well
$10 only, you can buy it here: http://compass.handlino.com/
it watches your folder and has neat small GUI in which you can do stuff
for more GUI guy like me prefered solution : http://minus.com/mbiMqEygJo/5
2.] COMMAND LINE = harder for some of use, more typing
but I wanted to know how to “really do it” in command line
you have to run Windows Command Prompt with Ruby as Administrator
but it works
watches the changes same as the compass.app
thanks for good direction, hope this helps you now when trying it
took me 60 minutes to figure out a month long headache :D
@Mottie update :D
my gosh, I had the scout.app on my disc a long time
I just did not know how to use it, will try now (to see if it is better than compass.app and what it does in general)
but I do not regret those $10 bucks for the compass.app
well it is the same price as 5 beers in my country so I will spare one evening in pub :D
@Mottie: Scout would be the best option indeed….if only I could get it to work. But as soon as I start “watching” a folder, I get some weird Adobe Air error. Documentation and help for Scout isn’t too great either, and if I look at the solution for it, I already see that even though it’s not necessarily complex, but just too much work: https://github.com/mhs/scout-app/issues/19
So I’ll be sticking with Compass.app for now, has never let me down. Thanks for posting the link to my blog, if you hadn’t then I would have. ;)
thank you then for your blog post
without it I would never start using Sass :D
btw to fix Scout is real easy
just change line 95 from … Program Files to … Program Files (x86)
as nuVoid was saying on Github
well but as you say I agree Compass.app wins and since I bought it an hour ago
will use it :)
because of this http://minus.com/mbiMqEygJo/7 !!!
ability to create projects :)
go with compass.app simply rulez ! has so many options, worth the money
scout.app is luggish a bit and does not do much except having GUI then what does Ruby command line, just watches
so thanks a lot guys
no I can go play this http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/legend_of_grimrock
with peace in my heart :D
