node-sass-middleware

Connect/Express middleware for node-sass.

Build Status npm version Dependency Status devDependency Status Gitter chat

Install

npm install node-sass-middleware

Usage

Recompile .scss or .sass files automatically for connect and express based http servers.

Connect example

var connect = require('connect')
var sassMiddleware = require('node-sass-middleware')
var server = connect.createServer(
  sassMiddleware({
      /* Options */
      src: __dirname
    , dest: __dirname + '/public'
    , debug: true
    , outputStyle: 'compressed'
    , prefix:  '/prefix'  // Where prefix is at <link rel="stylesheets" href="prefix/style.css"/>
  }),
  connect.static('/prefix', __dirname + '/public')
);

There is an example connect app here: https://github.com/andrew/node-sass-example

Heavily inspired by https://github.com/LearnBoost/stylus

Express example

var express = require('express');
var sassMiddleware = require('node-sass-middleware');
var path = require('path');
var app = express();
app.use(sassMiddleware({
    /* Options */
    src: __dirname,
    dest: path.join(__dirname, 'public'),
    debug: true,
    outputStyle: 'compressed',
    prefix:  '/prefix'  // Where prefix is at <link rel="stylesheets" href="prefix/style.css"/>
}));
// Note: you must place sass-middleware *before* `express.static` or else it will
// not work.
app.use('/public', express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'public')));

Connect with other middleware example

var connect = require('connect');
var sassMiddleware = require('node-sass-middleware');
var postcssMiddleware = require('postcss-middleware');
var autoprefixer = require('autoprefixer');
var path = require('path');
var http = require('http');
var app = connect();
var destPath = __dirname + '/public';
app.use(sassMiddleware({
    /* Options */
    src: __dirname
  , response: false
  , dest: destPath
  , outputStyle: 'extended'
}));
app.use(postcssMiddleware({
  plugins: [
    /* Plugins */
    autoprefixer({
      /* Options */
    })
  ],
  src: function(req) {
    return path.join(destPath, req.url);
  }
}));

http.createServer(app).listen(3000);

Options

  • src - (String) Source directory used to find .scss or .sass files.
  • optional configurations:

    • dest - (String) Destination directory used to output .css files (when undefined defaults to src).
    • root - (String) A base path for both source and destination directories.
    • prefix - (String) It will tell the sass middleware that any request file will always be prefixed with <prefix> and this prefix should be ignored.
    • force - [true | false], false by default. Always re-compile.
    • debug - [true | false], false by default. Output debugging information.
    • indentedSyntax - [true | false], false by default. Compiles files with the .sass extension instead of .scss in the src directory.
    • response - [true | false], true by default. To write output directly to response instead of to a file.
    • error - A function to be called when something goes wrong.
    • maxAge - MaxAge to be passed in Cache-Control header.
    • log - function(severity, key, val), used to log data instead of the default console.error

Express example with custom log function

var express = require('express');
var sassMiddleware = require('node-sass-middleware');
var path = require('path');
var winston = require('winston');
var app = express();
winston.level = 'debug';
app.use(sassMiddleware({
    /* Options */
    src: __dirname,
    dest: path.join(__dirname, 'public'),
    debug: true,
    log: function (severity, key, value) { winston.log(severity, 'node-saas-middleware   %s : %s', key, value); }
}));
// Note: you must place sass-middleware *before* `express.static` or else it will
// not work.
app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'public')));
