A custom grunt.js task that executes compass compile for you and prints the COMPASS output to grunt.log.write().
grunt-contrib-compassFROM NOW ON.
This is a custom grunt.js multitask aka gruntplugin that executes
compass compile on the command line for you and prints the COMPASS output to
Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with:
npm install grunt-compass.
grunt.loadNpmTasks( 'grunt-compass' ) in your gruntfile.
grunt watch to watch your scss files and call the task(s).
watch:files: 'assets/scss/*.scss'tasks: 'compass:dev' 'compass:prod'
Setup your SASS and CSS paths
src: 'assets/scss'dest: 'assets/css'
src is the folder with sass or scss files and
dest is the folder where the css files will be placed.
specify to specify certain files you want to compile:
A single file.
Use globbing to match files, like:
specify: 'assets/scss/*.scss' // Match all scss files under `assets/scss` but not include files in subdirctory.specify: 'assets/scss/**/*.scss' // Match all scss files under `assets/scss` include files in subdirctory.
See minimatch for more globbing usage.
Note a SASS/SCSS file will be ignored if its filename begin with an underscore
_. And all files you specify MUST be under the directory that you specified with
basePath to specify the location in which to run Compass. Useful for when using grunt with multiple projects with seperate folder structures.
You can set your custom output style like this:
You can disable line comments like this:
If you have multiple compass tasks and you want to force compass compilation you can do this:
You can require ruby libraries before running commands like this:
You can add the
--debug-info option for use with FireSass like so:
You can set the relative assets to
true and set an image path for the Compass spriting feature:
images: '/path/to/images'relativeassets: true
You can run compass with bundle exec if you need to as well:
If you have a Compass configuration file, you can use it instead of or in addition to the options in your gruntfile:
If the path is not absolute, it is relative to the directory containing your gruntfile.
If you have a Compass configuration file, you set the environment variable for the config.rb file:
Then use it in your config.rb like so:
output_style = ( environment == :production ) ? :compressed : :expanded
You can add a custom
IMPORT_PATH folder, which makes files under the path findable by Sass's
Sometimes it can be faster to execute
compass clean and recompile for production instead of doing
Now grunt-compass comes with a
grunt compass-clean task that you can use when registering prod tasks in your gruntfile like:
Run "grunt watch" and edit some SASS files :)

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
