SassPython - bindings for libsass

why?

who?

marianoguerra

how?

first of all download, compile and install libsass:

git clone https://github.com/hcatlin/libsass.git
cd libsass
./configure
make
sudo make install

then you can play with this project in two ways

command line

if no options provided read from stdin:

➜  src  ./sass.py
table.hl td.ln {
  text-align: right;
}

table.hl td.ln {
  text-align: right; }

from a file:

➜  src  ./sass.py -f ../examples/simple.scss

.content-navigation {
  border-color: #3bbfce;
  color: darken(#3bbfce, 9%); }

.border {
  padding: 8px;
  margin: 8px;
  border-color: #3bbfce; }

from a folder:

# I think it doesn't work, never used sass before and don't know what
# this means :)
➜  src  ./sass.py -d ../examples/

you can't chew gum and walk at the same time:

➜  src  ./sass.py -f ../examples/simple.scss -d ~
usage: sass.py [-h] [-f FILE_PATH | -d DIR_PATH]
sass.py: error: argument -d/--dir: not allowed with argument -f/--file

code

from a string:

Python 2.7.3 (default, Apr 20 2012, 22:44:07)

>>> import sass
>>> STYLE = """
... table.hl td.ln {
...   text-align: right;
... }
... """

>>> ok, style = sass.compile(STYLE)

>>> ok
True

>>> print style
table.hl td.ln {
  text-align: right; }

from a file:

>>> ok, style = sass.compile_path("../examples/simple.scss")

>>> ok
True

>>> print style
.content-navigation {
  border-color: #3bbfce;
  color: darken(#3bbfce, 9%); }

.border {
  padding: 8px;
  margin: 8px;
  border-color: #3bbfce; }

from a folder:

>>> ok, style = sass.compile_folder("../examples/")

# ???
# Profit!

from sources

python 2:

sudo python2 setup.py install

python 3:

using pip

sudo pip install SassPython

license?

MIT + optional beer for the creator

what's left to do?

  • make the folder stuff work
  • add command line options to specify option styles
  • see what the return value of the compile_* means and use it if needed
