Compass WordPress

This Compass extension provides support for creating WordPress Themes and working with WordPress Theme Frameworks using Sass.


Assuming you don't have Haml or Compass installed.

sudo gem install gemcutter
gem tumble
sudo gem haml
sudo gem install compass
sudo gem install compass-wordpress

To install a theme into your existing compass project, add the following to your compass configuration file:

require 'compass-wordpress'

OR, just run this command:

compass -r compass-wordpress -f wordpress --sass-dir=sass --css-dir=css -s compressed -p <Theme Name> /path/to/installation

OR, run this command:

compass create -r compass-wordpress --using wordpress <Theme Name>
    compass install wordpress/base --force <Theme Name>
    compass install wordpress/thematic --force <Theme Name>

What this does is call compass, requires the compass-wordpress extension, uses the framework wordpress, sets the sass and css directories, sets the Sass output to be compressed and finally ends with you setting the theme name.

Read more details at Wynn's blog.

** As of this version, we only have support for Thematic developed. Suggest one to use, or fork the project and take a stab at it yourself. Either way, get in touch we want to hear from you.

Supported Theme Options

  • project (default)
  • thematic

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project!
  • Develop your feature or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is IMPORTANT so your work doesn't get broken in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version that's fine, but bump version in a commit by itself so it can be ignored when pulled)
  • Send your pull request. Bonus points for usage of topic branches.
