grunt-compass

This is a custom grunt.js multitask aka gruntplugin that executes compass compile on the command line for you and prints the COMPASS output to grunt.log.write().

Dependencies

You need to have node.js, grunt.js, Ruby, SASS and Compass installed for this to work.

Installation & Options

  1. Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-compass.
  2. Call grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-compass') in your gruntfile.
  3. Configure grunt watch to watch your scss files and call the task(s). e.g.:

    watch: {
        files: ['assets/scss/*.scss'],
        tasks: ['compass:dev', 'compass:prod']
    }
  4. Setup your SASS and CSS paths

    src: 'assets/scss',
    dest: 'assets/css'

    src is the folder with sass or scss files and dest is the folder where the css files will be placed.

  5. Use specify to specify certain files you want to compile:

    A single file.

    specify: 'assets/scss/base.scss'

    Use globbing to match files, like:

    specify: 'assets/scss/*.scss' // Match all scss files under `assets/scss` but not include files in subdirctory.
    specify: 'assets/scss/**/*.scss' // Match all scss files under `assets/scss` include files in subdirctory.

    See minimatch for more globbing usage.

    Note a SASS/SCSS file will be ignored if its filename begin with an underscore _. And all files you specify MUST under directory the src specified.

    See SASS-partials.

  6. You can set your custom output style like this:

    outputstyle: 'compressed'
  7. You can disable line comments like this:

    linecomments: false
  8. If you have multiple compass tasks and you want to force compass compilation you can do this:

    forcecompile: true
  9. You can require a given ruby library before running commands like this:

    require: 'animate-sass mylib'
  10. You can add the --debug-info option for use with FireSass like so:

    debugsass: true
  11. You can set the relative assets to true and set an image path for the Compass spriting feature:

    images: '/path/to/images',
    relativeassets: true
  12. You can run compass with bundle exec if you need to as well:

    bundleExec: true
  13. If you have a Compass configuration file, you can use it instead of or in addition to the options in your gruntfile:

    config: '/path/to/config'

    If the path is not absolute, it is relative to the directory containing your gruntfile.

  14. If you have a Compass configuration file, you set the environment variable for the config.rb file:

    environment: 'production'

    Then use it in your config.rb like so:

    output_style = (environment == :production) ? :compressed : :expanded
  15. New task: compass-clean

Sometimes it can be faster to execute compass clean and recompile for production instead of doing --force compile. Now grunt-compass comes with a grunt compass-clean task that you can use when registering prod tasks in your gruntfile like:

grunt.registerTask('prod', ['compass-clean', 'compass:prod']);
  1. Run "grunt watch" and edit some SASS files :)

An Example Setup

compass: {
    dev: {
        src: 'assets/scss',
        dest: 'assets/dev/css',
        linecomments: true,
        forcecompile: true,
        require: 'animate-sass mylib',
        debugsass: true,
        images: '/path/to/images',
        relativeassets: true
    },
    prod: {
        src: 'assets/scss',
        dest: 'assets/prod/css',
        outputstyle: 'compressed',
        linecomments: false,
        forcecompile: true,
        require: 'animate-sass mylib',
        debugsass: false,
        images: '/path/to/images',
        relativeassets: true
    }
}
