gem 'sass' is not installed and it did not create any folder or files inside 'public' folder

Bonus content - Design and Development - Adding Plug-ins to a Ruby on Rails Application,

I followed the instruction as Jim installed gem 'sass' but it did not install anything for me. I'm using OS X, Rails version 3.2.8.

Could you help me why it id not installed? because Rails version is different?

Did you run bundle install in your terminal? I dont know much about troubleshooting rails, but that is the only thing I can think of. Good Luck

Try adding "sass-rails". I think the version in those videos is quite out of date. Sorry about that!

I just realized that my problem is not about installing 'saas'.

The roblem is that what Rails generates is different from mine(I think it is because the video is too old as Jason says)

in the video, when Jim generate rails application (rails new easyjob -J) in the 2nd video, it shows the stylesheet folder and javascript folder inside public folder, but mine shows both of them inside assets folder.
