    Does anyone have any recommendations for a windows equivalent of code kit?

    I’m looking for something that offers style injection, sass/compass support, and minification. JSHint and frameworks would be nice to have also. Anything on top of that would just be a bonus.

    I already tried mixture.io but couldn’t get style injection to work.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried Prepros?

    Well, it’s been a week so I just wanted to go ahead and post an update. Prepros has been exactly what I needed. It hasn’t given me any issues. It is now a full time member of my workflow.

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    I like Compass.app much better than Prepos on Windows. Whenever I used Prepos my computer would lag out.

    @chrisburton, I’m surprised. I used to be a big fan of Compass.app, but after I tried Prepros, I decided it worked just as great, if not better. Definitely no lag issues there.

    Have not actually tried the live-reload functionality, though…just the pre-processing parts.

    I just started using Prepros a little over a week ago. I love it. No lagging issues for me either. I do use the live-reload/css-injection feature.

    It could have just been my computer. Glad I got rid of it and switched to a Macbook Pro.

    I was all rooting for you until…

    Glad I got rid of it and switched to a Macbook Pro.

    I’m using Windows too and have been looking for a Windows equivalent to CodeKit. This forum has really helped me. I think I’ll give Prepos a try.

    Good Mac users are just linux users who haven’t found the courage to grow out their beards yet

    I reported the lag issue soon after the author published a post about it here in the forum. Maybe he fixed it?

    As an alternative more configurable option, you can run Grunt or Gulp on Windows and either will do what Codekit does but both require a lot more configuration. Check them out, task runners are amazing! Think all the automation of Codekit and a lot more!

    I switched to gulp from prepros a few weeks ago and like it a lot better. It did take a little longer to get set up, but the ability to run everything from one spot is nice.
