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

Getting Started with Sass Stage 1

I following the teachers notes to install ruby with windows then Sass. When I type sass --version into my command window I get back 3.3.4 (Maptastic Maple). I then make my test.scss file in my text editor- notepad++. But when i put sass test.scss into my command window I get- Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - test.scss Use -- trace for backtrace.

As this is the first lesson with Sass and the first time ive ever opened a command prompt I could use some help.

I believe you have to go down into the directory like C:/Desktop/website/css/test.scss. If you simply type test.scss and you're still only in C: it's technically not there. I do recommend using Compass though. Even if you understand everything he's doing, Compass makes the process a ton simpler, and works just the same.

I haven't used compass however, I'm sure compass does that.

Using compass.app does, but so does any of the Sass GUI applications.

Got it. Ive never used the command prompt before. You have to set your path completely to the scss file. Thanks for the help
