We have decided to discontinue the Compass.app & Fire.app projects. You can still get the source code under GPL as always, and we have put the latest binary on GitHub for free. What happened?


Compass.app is a menubar only app for Sass and Compass. It helps designers compile stylesheets easily without resorting to command line interface.

Compass.app is written in Java (JRuby), and works in mac, linux and pc. You do not need to install Ruby environment to use it.

System Requirement

Compass.app has been tested in:

  • Windows: Windows 7/8/8.1
  • OS X: 10.8 32/64bit, 10.9 64bit
  • Linux: Arch Linux 32/64bit

Compass.app is written in Java (JRuby), so you must install JRE(Java Runtime Environment) first. If you do not have JRE installed, Compass.app will guide you to install it first.


You can download the latest release.


There is no need to install Compass.app. You can just unzip and put it anywhere. You can even use Dropbox to sync between computers.
