CSS CSS to Sass Refactoring with Sass Finishing and Importing our Partials

Why don't I have an application.css file in the css folder?

I have followed the video and near the end, I see that Guil has a application.css file in his css folder which I don't. I noted that the --watch command "disappeared ". I entered the command back into the console but still nothing. Is there a way to get the application.css file to appear?

Are you sure you're entering the full command into the console? I just launched the video and opened workspace. It comes with an application.css file, but I deleted it and entered the watch command:

sass --watch scss:css

The console automatically recreated the application.css file.

Thanks Joey. I started from the beginning and was able to see the file in the second attempt.

I had the same issue trying to run this lesson in Brackets instead of Workspaces.

I restarted terminal and entered the two commands below and the application.css file was created! Thanks Joey and Dean VB.

cd desktop/lake-tahoe

sass --watch scss:css
