CSS Sass Basics Getting Started with Sass Compile a Directory of Sass Files

ERNO error in Sass Video?

Hi all--

I am starting to code along with the intro to SASS video and after entering the watch command into the WorkSpace command line terminal, it registered the watch but followed with an error.

The error is Errno : ENOTDIR: Not a directory @ rb_file_S_mtime - css/style.css Use --trace for backtrace.

Any ideas what I did wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you!

I had a similar issue. I forgot to create the css folder before running the watch command.

@teams, based on the date of your question I am guessing you already found your answer. For anyone else who is having the same problem, I believe the error is caused by the letter case of the new folders being created. The folders should be "scss" and "css" as opposed to "SCSS" and "CSS". I hope this helps.
