SCSS Mode for Emacs

Major mode for editing SCSS files in Emacs.


  • Compilation of current file on save. (Disable by changing scss-compile-at-save to nil)
  • Flymake support, enable with M-x flymake-mode
  • Indentation and highlighting (Derived from CSS-mode)
  • Syntax highlighting for variables and inline comments.


Command line utility sass is required, Make sure sass location is in emacs PATH, example:

(setq exec-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/.gem/ruby/1.8/bin") exec-path))

Or customize scss-sass-command to point directly to your sass executable.

Add something like this to your emacs load file:

(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/folder-where-you-put-scss-mode-el"))
(autoload 'scss-mode "scss-mode")
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.scss\\'" . scss-mode))


If you want to automatically hide the compilation buffer for every successful compilation have a look at aj-compilation.el

All successful compilations in other modes are also hidden, except for rgrep “compilations” where a successful compilation is what you are interested in…

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
