Grunt and Compass Explosion in Head

Hi there

I am learning SASS and having a hard time with Grunt and Compass it was all going well until my latest task.

I am trying to get compass to work and I am using the following in my gruntfile.js


However the error that I get is written in the HTML window on this fiddle. Its driving me mad. I have the compass dependency installed and do not know what I am doing wrong any help very much appreciated - all other tasks working as they should before this one was added.


Oh not me. I mastered Sass but gave up with that grunt, couldn't ever get it working for me. :(

Grunt was working it was just the compass thing that has caused a problem - this is where a bit of cheeky version control comes in I can rewind the project and start it from scratch I must have missed something obvious

Developers cure - leave it for a bit and come back - all fixed. All praise GIT

Usually the way!

this tasks: ['compass.dev'] should have been tasks: ['compass:dev']
