SCSS Plugin for DocPad using node-sass

NPM version Dependency Status Build Status Gittip donate button

Adds support for the SCSS CSS pre-processor to DocPad.

The indented .sass syntax is not supported by node-sass, so it is not supported by this plugin.

Convention: .css.scss


docpad install nodesass

Output Style

outputStyle: 'nested'|'compressed'

outputStyle is a String to determine how the final CSS should be rendered. Its value should be one of 'nested' or 'compressed'. 'expanded' and 'compact' are not currently supported by libsass.


An object that you can use to pass options to node-sass

Debug Info

debugInfo: false|'normal'|'map'

normal will print comments in the output css that indicates the source file name and line number. map will produce a sourcemap. Using either of these options instead of none will prevent you from being able to run any other process on the file (e.g., because debugInfo requires passing an actual file instead of stdin.

Render Underscore Stylesheets

renderUnderscoreStylesheets: false|true

By default we prevent any SCSS stylesheets that filename starts with underscore character from being rendered and written to the output directory. This is to follow SCSS convention that such files are just intended to be included inside our stylesheets, and that they are not meant to be rendered by themselves. If you really want to, you can render the underscore stylesheets by setting the renderUnderscoreStylesheets option to true in your plugin's configuration.

import-once example

The node-sass-import-once module speeds up rendering by only importing files once. It also adds a few additional features including automatically importing from bower_components/.

Install it with

npm install --save node-sass-import-once

And then configure it by setting the nodesass.options.importer to the import-once module:

                importer: require('node-sass-import-once')
                    index: true # @import 'foo'; will load foo/_index.scss if foo is a folder
                    css: true # @import 'bar'; will import bar.css
                    bower: true # automatically search bower_components directory for imports

Bourbon example

The node-bourbon module includes a simple and lightweight mixin library.

Install it with

npm install --save node-bourbon

And then configure it by setting nodesass.options.includePaths to the includePaths provided by the module.

                includePaths: require('node-bourbon').includePaths
