##node-sass

Node-sass is a library that provides binding for Node.js to libsass, the C version of the popular stylesheet preprocessor, Sass.

It allows you to natively compile .scss files to css at incredible speed and automatically via a connect middleware.

Find it on npm: http://search.npmjs.org/#/node-sass

Install

npm install

Usage

var sass = require('node-sass');
sass.render(scss_content, callback [, options]);

Especially, the options argument is optional. It support two attribute: include_paths and output_style, both of them are optional.

include_paths is an Array, you can add a sass import path.

output_style is a String, its value should be one of 'nested', 'expanded', 'compact', 'compressed'. [Important: currently the argument output_style has some problem which may cause the output css becomes nothing because of the libsass, so you should not use it now!]

Here is an example:

var sass = require('node-sass');
sass.render('body{background:blue; a{color:black;}}', function(err, css){
  console.log(css)
}/*, { include_paths: [ 'lib/', 'mod/' ], output_style: 'compressed' }*/);

Connect/Express middleware

Recompile .scss files automatically for connect and express based http servers

var server = connect.createServer(
  sass.middleware({
      src: __dirname
    , dest: __dirname + '/public'
    , debug: true
  }),
  connect.static(__dirname + '/public')
);

  • sass compression options
  • publish npm
  • file context?
  • folder context?
