OK. I’m starting to use SASS. I’m also using Sublime Text2 on Windows. I would like to ask how you guys set up your Sublime Text for coding SASS. I mean what packages, plugins or snippets you’ve installed.
This is what I have ATM.
Sublime Text 2 packages installed.

I also don’t have a scss file extension. (this)= no text highlighting
Thank you.May 30, 2013 at 4:11 am #137012Kitty GiraudelParticipant
“Sass” package for syntax highlighting.May 30, 2013 at 4:30 am #137014
@HugoGiraudel Thanks. But how do I get a SCSS file extension (bottom-righ of sublime text)? I only have SASS and the defaults. All other tutorials and even @chriscoyier is using SCSS.
I hope you get what I mean.
Thanks.May 30, 2013 at 4:31 am #137015Kitty GiraudelParticipant
Even on my SCSS files, ST2 says it’s Sass. :)May 30, 2013 at 7:33 am #137019Paulie_DMember
OK…AFAIK, although ST2 can handle SASS/SCSS (because at the end of it all it’s just a text-editor) it won’t automagically parse and create a CSS file from your SCSS file. You have to use an app.
I’ve started using Prepros (http://alphapixels.com/prepros/) and it’s the bees knees.
Create a blank file and name it with a `.scss` extension. When Prepros goes to work it automatically creates a CSS file for you.May 30, 2013 at 8:23 am #137036jimmyParticipant
You can also use [Mixture](http://mixture.io “Mixture”) for Windows, it’s currently in free beta, but they will announce on pricing as soon as it leaves beta stage. Main functionality is the same – it acts as a CodeKit “equivalent”, uses/pairs with local server, compiles SASS/LESS/Stylus/Haml/Compass and includes livereload.
The difference from Prepros is the following:
– .liquid templating
– known frameworks/boilerplates, tailored to work with .liquid, e.g. Foundation, Bootstrap, inuit.css, Sassaparilla
– it compiles two versions of your .scss – minified and expanded (you don’t exactly need Mixture to do that, there are plugins for ST2 as well).
I used it for a long time before Prepros – switched to Prepros though, because I don’t need the whole templating thingy, although maybe you’d find it interesting.May 31, 2013 at 3:05 am #137122
Does Prepos tells where your error is? I tried it and I had an error saying it can’t compile. It doesn’t tell where the error is. After scanning the code, it was just a typo error on my variable.May 31, 2013 at 4:07 am #137124SubashMember
@chester, Click on the notification or click Open Log Window icon on top right corner of app window to get more info about the error.May 31, 2013 at 5:06 pm #137212
