Hey! I was having the exact same problem and was very frustrated/on the verge of giving up until I took one last attempt and downloaded http://koala-app.com/

It was super easy to use and had me up and running immediately!

Hi Michael,

Try something like Prepros which is free but also offers a premium version for added features.

prepros - seems good to but i still have css error with bourbon -

Error: Invalid CSS after " eot)": expected "}", was ": "#{$file-path..." on line 22 of bourbon/helpers/_font-source-declaration.scss from line 28 of bourbon/_bourbon.scss from line 2 of main.scss Use --trace for backtrace.

I guess I will have to downgrade my sass - not sure how to do this yet but looking into it
