@MkMkrShannon on twitter reported that ScoutApp was not compiling, it would just say "Nothing to compile" in the log output. Here's the directory structure of the set up.

Two possible things to check.

First, can you create a new project and make sure your "sass" directory from your Gist output is chosen as the project directory. Then, re-choose the Input and Output folders. Run that and let me know how that goes.

If that doesn't work, can you create a directory on your desktop with this structure:

Test-App/
       - input/
       - output/ 

Then, create a ScoutApp project choosing Test-App/ as the project directory and input as Input/ and output/ as Output. Place your SCSS file in input, then play and see if that works. If it does, try to change that directory structure to match the one in your actual project and let's see if we can find where it breaks.

If neither of the above works, we'll have to do some more investigating, perhaps make sure you have permissions to write to the sass/ directory. Hopefully the above things will show insight or resolve the issue.

Neither of the above worked. I do have write permissions to the test folder. Please see two screenshots.

You may have already done this, but to make sure we hit all bases. Can you add a foo.scss file in the input/ directory and put in there some sample contents like:

body {
  color: green;
}

Then hit play in Scout for Test-App?

I have figured out the issue, pretty silly on my part but here it is.

I had 'hide extensions' ticked and although the file was being shown as 'style.scss' when i did 'Get info' it was actually named 'style.scss.css'. Removing the .css did the trick.

Now Scout is working as intended, thanks for the support it looks to be a great app.

Awesome! I'm glad it turned out to be something simple and that Scout is working! Happy scouting!
