CSS Sass Basics Improve Your Workflow with Sass Nested Selectors

Not transferring the change between style.scss and style.css

I tried --watch for sass to transfer between style.scss to style.css but its not working. What can I do to fix this issue? And there was an error shown when I typed the sass --watch style.scss:style.css. Error said , "error No such file or directory @rb_sysopen - style.scss.

serenahendrickson So without being able to see your file structure, I cannot be completely certain of the solution to your issue, but the error message is saying that there does not exist a file called "style.scss". Did you maybe accidentally name it style.sass or put it in a separate folder? I would rewatch the video and make sure you are doing everything exactly as Guil does it. Let me know if you figure it out!

Hi Ryan, I will try that. thank you!

For others who might have this trouble, make sure there is no space between the colon and css. I had this same problem, and it turned out to be because I typed: sass --watch scss: css

instead of

sass --watch scss:css

Hope that helps!
