CSS Sass Basics (retired) Getting Started with Sass Installing and Using Sass

running sass --watch test.scss on cmd is not updating test.css when i make changes to test.scss. (windows 7)....

i ran the command just as in the video so that sass would keep an eye on my test.scss file so when i made changes it would automatically update my test.css file but its not updating my file... what is the cause of this?

I had this same issue, also using windows.

I used this command in the ruby window: sass --watch input.scss:output.css

So, using my file names it read: sass --watch main.scss:main.css

For some reason, I had to manually update my files. After making some changes to my scss file, I hit save. Next I would "stop" the watch command. Then I would run it again. My css file would update each time I did this. This worked for me.

I'm also having the some issue on Win 7.

That works for me, thanks Sarah.
