Having just finished Dan Cederholm’s excellent Sass For Web Designers I wanted to delve right into Sass myself. So I jumped right into my go to text editor, Coda from Panic, and while it did support the Sass syntax it sadly doesn’t automagically compile the Sass into CSS for you.
So after some digging and some modifying we present a plugin for Coda 2 to automatically compile your handcrafted Sass into CSS for you whenever you save a Sass file in Coda.
Simply download the Sass.codaplugin.zip file, unzip, and double click the Sass.codaplugin file.
Using the plugin is as simple as creating a
style.scss where you would normally create a
style.css. Because Sass is really just CSS with benefits you can just write all your CSS in your scss file and on save it will automagically create your css file for you in the same directory just like so:
We can also support using Sass partials. Editing any Sass partial in Coda will also automatically generate the appropriate CSS. See for yourself:
For other Sass Coda users out there, we hope this plugin can add a little niceity to your day. If you have any difficulty feel free to reply here or submit an issue on Github. Enjoy!
