Further to my previous post, I was wondering how to generate compressed CSS output when compiling SCSS files in Netbeans. Netbeans ignores the output_style setting in my config.rb file. I almost never read the generated CSS files, and so easily readable CSS is not a priority for me, however file size is.
Compass is an open-source CSS3 authoring framework. It is based around SASS and helps make CSS3 code cleaner and more re-useable. Unfortunately, it’s mostly command-line based, an area I guess a lot of Windows users don’t feel that comfortable with. So here’s my step-by step guide to getting Compass working on Windows. You can stop at the end of step 5 if you’re happy with the command-line approach, or carry on to the end if you use Eclipse and want automated builds from there.
