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

Error on the console

Sorry, can someone help? I keep receiving the following error and I have now been stuck for an hour...

treehouse:~/workspace$ scss --watch scss:css

Sass is watching for changes. Press Ctrl-C to stop.
Errno::ENOTDIR: Not a directory @ rb_file_s_mtime - css/style.css
Use --trace for backtrace.

Hi Silvia!

I dunno if you've already gotten the answer here, but your console should read:

treehouse:~/workspace$ sass --watch scss:css

You've got "scss" at the beginning of your command.

Happy coding!

Hey Clinton Hays! thank you! I never got it sorted :( I had to kind of follow the video without getting any practise... but now I know! thanks! Kind of funny how a small error can mess up all the code

Seriously! I'm so much less worried about AI taking over now that I know a misplaced semi-colon or an open curly-brace can throw things off so much! Haha

haha tell me about it... how a small tiny thing can mess your life in 2 seconds :P
