Jekyll Sass Converter

Let Jekyll build your Sass and SCSS!

Build Status Windows Build status


Jekyll Sass Converter requires Jekyll 2.0.0 or greater and is bundled with Jekyll so you don't need to install it if you're already using Jekyll.

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-sass-converter'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-sass-converter


Jekyll Sass Converter comes bundled with Jekyll 2.0.0 and greater. For more information about usage, visit the Jekyll Assets Documentation page.

Source Maps

Starting with v2.0, the Converter will by default generate a source map file along with the .css output file. The source map is useful when we use the web developers tools of Chrome or Firefox to debug our .sass or .scss stylesheets.

The source map is a file that maps from the output .css file to the original source .sass or .scss style sheets. Thus enabling the browser to reconstruct the original source and present the reconstructed original in the debugger.

Configuration Options

Configuration options are specified in the _config.yml file in the following way:

  <option_name1>: <option_value1>
  <option_name2>: <option_value2>

Available options are:

  • style

    Sets the style of the CSS-output. Can be nested, compact, compressed, or expanded. See the SASS_REFERENCE for details.

    Defaults to compact.

  • sass_dir

    A filesystem-path which should be searched for Sass partials.

    Defaults to _sass

  • load_paths

    An array of additional filesystem-paths which should be searched for Sass partials.

    Defaults to []

  • line_comments

    When set to true, the line number and filename of the source is included in the compiled CSS-file. Useful for debugging when the source map is not available, but might considerably increase the size of the generated CSS files.

    Defaults to false.

  • sourcemap

    Controls when source maps shall be generated.

    • never — causes no source maps to be generated at all.
    • always — source maps will always be generated.
    • development — source maps will only be generated if the site is in development environment. That is, when the environment variable JEKYLL_ENV is set to development.

    Defaults to always.
