Hi Judith, you can find an explanation of that file in the Configuring Your Project video under the Compass Basics course.

Transcript Notes

So earlier when we created our Compass project, we saw that along with the Sass and stylesheet directories, this config.rb was also created inside our folder. Now, this is the Compass project configuration file. It's a Ruby file that tells Compass the directories and paths to where all our project assets are kept.

Hi Judith!

I just finished this course and I noticed that also in the Project Files also. The config.rb file is part of the Compass/Sass framework. I believe Guil included it briefly (with the @import directive) in one of the videos in the application.scss file but it wasn't covered. If you haven't checked out the Compass course yet it's pretty good. Now you have me curious as to how to implement Compass in SMACSS.... :)
