Working in Sublime Text with a .scss file (Sass question)

Wondering if there is a way to get the .scss file to act as the .css files do. In the .css files the font is colored and sublime will auto guess what you are typing in before you complete the text. In the .scss file all the text is white and auto completions are not shown.

Is there a way to change this?

Hi Chase,

I used the package Syntax Highlighting for Sass: https://github.com/P233/Syntax-highlighting-for-Sass. I followed these instructions and they were pretty clear: http://www.hannaliebl.com/setting-up-syntax-highlighting-for-sass-in-sublime-tex/

Hope that helps.

Cheers Amanda.

This package here https://sublime.wbond.net/packages/Sass has autocomplete, syntax highlighting and it works just fine for me.

If you don't know how to install sublime packages follow this instruction here https://sublime.wbond.net/installation

Good luck!

Thanks Chase, I was wondering the same thing and those instructions worked perfectly!
