CSS Sass Basics (retired) Speeding up Workflow with Sass Importing Files

The CSS file for the blackberry.scss was not automatically created. What am I missing?

I am working in Windows 7. As I followed along the lesson, I was watching the main.scss file, so the main.css file was being updated. When I created the blackberry.scss file, the corresponding css file was not created. I had to stop watching the main.scss and start watching the blackberry.scss to generate it. Did I miss a step?

If you put your scss files into the same folder, then you can watch the whole folder and the css files should be automatically created.

I also have the same problem. The files are in the same folder, of course, but blackberry.css does not appear.

I believe you would be wanting to put sass --watch . which would then see any files created, instead of just watching a specific file. That's what I'm doing and it found and created blackberry.css automatically.
