This is a painless boilerplate code to start designing Web sites in Haml, Sass and Compass.


You’d want to install the following dependencies to get the engines running.

sudo gem install sinatra shotgun haml compass

Rollin’ it

Open up Terminal and fire up shotgun site.rb. Browsers will now answer to every refresh with reloaded styles. Open up views in your favorite text editor and you’re ready to go.

That’s all there is to it.


This is supposed to be a helping tool during designing web pages. The files would probably be copied manually outside somewhere when finished.

I use this to design my websites before coding anything, helping me focus on design by just refreshing the page (like old-school HTML/CSS).
