Does PyCharm compile SASS files to corresponding CSS files?

Hi, I am switching to SASS files for my CSS style sheets and I didn't understand, if PyCharm supports it, how to get them compiled to CSS files.

Is it a built-in function or should I do something else?

Hello Gisueppe,

This is not a built-in function of PyCharm. You can set up an external tool

to do that (Settings | External Tools).

You can try Compass: http://compass-style.org/

It gives you a compass watch command which will watch your project for changes in .sass or .scss files and automatically recompile your css.

Also, if you pair it with LiveReload (https://github.com/mockko/livereload), you can get the browser to reload on any file change, including templates and css. It really improves your workflow!

Hi Aaron, thanks a lot, I had already found compass.app, but I was goind just terminal, it doesn't scare me. ;-)

While, about LiveReload is really a nice surprise, even if I'll wait for v 2.0 on the Mac App Store.

Cool, I'm on Linux, but there's a new Mac App called Codekit which brings together all these tools: http://incident57.com/codekit/

Great, thanks, that's just what I needed. It will be interesting to see how they will compare.
