In my Project I need style.css to be in the root of the folder and not in a separate CSS Directory.

How would you go about specifying where the style.css will go in our project, as I'm relating this to a WordPress site - I need the style.css to be in the root of the Theme Folder and not in a separate CSS Directory.

Is there a way to do this with the gem method or would I need to use an app like Gulp or Grunt?

Wouldn't it be as simple as simply linking it as "style.css"?

All links to CSS files are relative to the location of the linked file. header.php, index.php, index.html, etc so you simply use style.css as the value as it's in the same directory.

Simply enqueue the file in your functions.php (which should also be in the root directory) accordingly.

Hope this helps :)
