Sass for TextMate/Sublime Text 2 & 3

What's this thingie?

This add-on adds syntax highlighting and tab/code completion for Sass and SCSS files. It features Zen Coding shortcuts for many CSS properties, making you look like some kind of stylesheet wizard to everyone around you. You've got to like that.

TextMate Installation

With git

mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles/
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles/
git clone Sass.tmbundle
osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

Without git

mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
mkdir sass-textmate-bundle.tmbundle && curl -L | tar xz --strip 1 -C sass-textmate-bundle.tmbundle
osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

Sublime Text 2 & 3 Installation

With Sublime Package Control

I recommend using the excellent Sublime Package Control to install Sublime Text 2 packages.

Once you have Package Control installed, activate your Command Palette and choose Package Control: Install Package.

Then, search for "Sass" and press Enter. In mere moments you'll be up and running with full syntax highlighting, tab completion and more. Huzzah!

With Git (Windows)

From within Sublime Text go to: Preferences > Browse Packages...

Right-click and select: Git Bash Here

From the Git Bash: git clone

Restart Sublime Text.

Putting HAML in its place

You may find that when you open files with the .sass extension, Sublime Text 2 initially interprets the syntax as HAML. To permanently fix this, open Packages/Rails/Ruby Haml.tmLanguage and delete the line <string>sass</string>.

Alternatively, you can open a sass file in Sublime Text (with either the .sass or .scss extension) and go to View > Syntax and select Sass. This will also ensure updated won't override this setting in future.
