Please create a .scss file as well #58

I'd love to have a .scss file. Many of us use Sass with .scss, instead of .sass.

Assuming you're using Formalize via an @import, the *.sass version should work just as well as if it was *.scss.

So, I guess I'm wondering – What's the use-case for having it as *.scss? I'm not saying "no," just saying "Help me to understand."

Sometimes I'll fork Formalize, instead of overriding it's visual styles. Depends on the project. But when I want to fork it, I have to make a .scss file so we can use it. Today I spent a while converting that CSS into SCSS, putting your groovy comments back in, sassifying some of the code. Tedious. I wondered, hey how come there's not a .scss file here already? That would be handy. So I thought I'd open an issue.

Also, THANKS! Reading through the code line by line again today made me realize how handy this library is.

Just posting here to let you know I haven't forgotten about this. I still have the email thread star'd in my inbox.

But, I'm trying to think of a way to be able to write *.sass and have it also spit out a *.scss file. I'm thinking maybe doing some sort of regex, but haven't had the time to experiment with that approach.

I was looking at this too. Looks like there is a way to convert back and forth between *.sass and *.scss.

Nice, I'll check if I can just make this part of my normal build process.

Oh, that would be handy. Easy to make. Flexible for all kinds of uses. :) Thanks.

That convert command worked like a charm. Added in this commit…


Sweet! Thanks Nathan. :)
