CSS Sass Basics (retired) Getting Started with Sass Installing and Using Sass

-bash: Desktop: command not found I cannot get the terminal to see my scss file. What word processor should I use?

I have tried text edit, Word, and can't get the terminal to see the test.scss file. I get an error code. I changed the directory to the Desktop, but no luck. I type Macs-MacBook:Desktop macuser$ test.scss and get the error code. Nothing on the board has helped.

Are you in the same folder as the file? Remember you can move to another directory using the "cd" command. Now, when you say "I can't get the terminal to see the test.scss file", do you mean it is not listed with something as the "-ls" command?

$ pwd # will let you know where you are in the system
$ cd ~ # will put you back in your home/username dir
# the sass docs are really good. Quote:
# You can also tell Sass to watch the file and update the CSS every time the Sass file changes:

sass --watch input.scss:output.css

# If you have a directory with many Sass files, you can also tell Sass to watch the entire directory:

sass --watch app/sass:public/stylesheets
