Installing and Using Sass

It seems like everything was setup to run, though when I did the basic test to check if empty file works, I got the message below indicating no such file exists:

Last login: Tue Jan 28 14:35:23 on ttys001 Vinhs-MacBook-Pro:~ vvu$ sass --version Sass 3.2.14 (Media Mark) Vinhs-MacBook-Pro:~ vvu$ desktop/ -bash: desktop/: is a directory Vinhs-MacBook-Pro:~ vvu$ sass test.scss Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - test.scss Use --trace for backtrace. Vinhs-MacBook-Pro:~ vvu$

The test.scss file was located on the desktop when I ran the test. Not really sure why Sass isn't picking up the file. Any suggestions to what I should do from here?

The 'Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory' error suggests you are attempting to point to a non-existent directory. I would double check where you are initiating your sass and where your scss files are located.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the help!

I took me awhile to understand what you meant by "initiating" but it's still a great hint nevertheless. Essentially, I'd to change the Terminal to desktop view before considering running the test.
