There are a couple of ways to start using Sass:
There are a good many applications that will get you up and running with Sass in a few minutes for Mac, Windows, and Linux. You can download most of the applications for free but a few of them are paid apps (and totally worth it).
When you install Sass on the command line, you'll be able to run the
sassexecutable to compile
.cssfiles. For example:
sass source/stylesheets/index.scss build/stylesheets/index.css
First install Sass using one of the options below, then run
sass --versionto be sure it installed correctly. If it did, this will include
1.16.1. You can also run
sass --helpfor more information about the command-line interface.
Once it's all set up, go and play. If you're brand new to Sass we've set up some resources to help you learn pretty darn quick.
