SASS build system for Sublime Text 2

Note: I'm working in a portable version of the SASS build with all the libraries included & ready to use. It will be available (I hope!) the next week.


Provides two Build system for SASS files (with and without compression)


Requires Ruby & SASS libraries.

Step by step:

  1. Install Ruby library

    Windows: Download and install Ruby. You can find it here:

    Reboot after install it.

    IMPORTANT: Don't forget to mark the option 'Add Ruby executables to your PATH'. If you don't check the option, you will have to modify the path in the Build file afterwards.

    OS X & Linux: It's already installed. Easy! :)

  2. Installing SASS

    Open your console ('Command prompt with Ruby' on Windows) and execute the following command:

    gem install sass


OPTION 1 - With the Package Control plugin (recommended)

The easiest way to install this package is through Package Control.

  1. Download and install the Package Control Plugin. Follow the instructions on the website.

  2. Open the command panel: Control+Shift+P (Linux/Windows) or Command+Shift+P (OS X) and select 'Package Control: Install Package'.

  3. When the packages list appears type 'SASS' and you'll find the SASS Build System. Select to install it.

  4. Now you can compile your SASS files! Launch your build with Control+B (Linux/Windows) or Command+B (OS X).

  5. Enjoy your coding =)

OPTION 2 - With Git

Clone the repository in your Sublime Text "Packages" directory:

git clone git:// SASS-build

You can find your 'Packages' inside the following directories:

  • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 2/Packages/

OPTION 3 - Without Git

Download the latest source zip from Github and extract it into a new folder named SASS-Build in your Sublime Text "Packages" folder.

Using the build

After installing the package you will find two new options in Tools > Build system of your Sublime menu: SASS and SASS - Compressed.

By default your .scss and .sass files will be built using the SASS build (not compressed).

And remember, always you can launch the selected build with Control+B (Linux/Windows) or Command+B (OS X).


  • Is recommended to use this build with one of the next plugins: SASS plugin or SCSS.tmbundle.

  • Also, I recommend the plugin SublimeOnSaveBuild. Just save your SASS files and transform them into CSS!

  • If you want to change the default folder of your generated CSS files into another one, you can edit the build:

    Example: Save your CSS files into a css folder: "cmd": ["sass", "--update", "$file:${file_path}/../css/${file_base_name}.css"],
