SASS Sugar

To install: download, unzip by double clicking it, then drag into ~/Library/Application Support/Espresso/Sugars (you may need to use CMD+SHIFT+G in the Finder to get to Library).

Or to install the sugar using git just open the terminal and type:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Espresso/Sugars
git clone git://

NOTE: This is meant for the SASS style syntax and has extremely limited support for SCSS syntax. Do not send pull requests adding support for SCSS features, as they will not be merged!

SASS Settings

To use the sass convert features you don't need to do anything different, but I guess most people are like me and have a folder for sass files and another for css. To make the sass go into your css folder you will need to change the preferences.

For Espresso 1

Open Espresso's preferences and navigate to Advanced. Then in the table called 'Custom shell variables', add an entry with name SASS_DIRECTORY, and set the value to the name of the folder you usually use for .sass files (eg. I set it to _sass). Then add another called CSS_DIRECTORY and set the value to the folder you usually use for css files (eg. css).

NOTE: You cannot set per-project settings for this.

For Espresso 2

There are two options for this:

  1. Open Sass.sugar/Support/Scripts/create_css.rb and change the variables being set on lines 9 and 10 to something like:

     sass = '_sass'
     css = 'css'
  2. Or set the variables in your .bashrc or .zshrc by adding:

     export SASS_DIRECTORY="_sass"
     export CSS_DIRECTORY="css"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
