How to configure a project into the Scout App Interface?

Hi,

Can anybody help me to configure a project into the Scout App Interface? I don't know how to choose input or output Folder. To use Sass should I install XAMPP or WAMPP? In tutorial it uses "Desktop - bash". I don't have that! please, help me! Respectfully, Catalin

I just installed Scout, so this is based on my limited knowledge, but... after you select the directory you want to work in, you're basically just telling the app where you're going to work on the sass/.scss files (I created a folder in my main directory and named it sass). Your Sass files are the input folder.

The output folder is where you want to store your CSS file that Sass compiles for you. I created a "css" folder in my project directory for that.

Hopefully that makes sense. If not, there's this: Getting Started with Scout

Yay! I just finished the Sass course using Scout and I think I fell in love with Sass. It's so fun. :P
