Project description

SCSS Tools

SCSS Tools is a bundle of tools for making web development with SCSS in Python much easier. It monitors your SCSS file directory for file change and recompile automatically for you. It also has Compass and Blueprint CSS framework built-in, To use SCSS Tools, you need to write a YAML configuration file. Following is an example of configuration file



    # path to Scss directory for monitoring

    # verbosity of message output
    verbosity: 2

    # compress
    compress: True

    # debug info
    debug_info: False

    # root of static files

    # directory to output sprite images

    # paths to import
    load_paths: [

    # path of input files and path of file to output
    scss_files: [
        [scss/style.scss, static/style.css],
        [scss/style2.scss, static/style2.css],


To start monitoring and compiling SCSS, just type:

scss_monitor -c scss.yaml

The path to configuration is scss.yaml, so you can also type:


It has built-in Compass/Blueprint SCSS framework, therefore, you can leverage them directly


@import "compass/reset";

@include blueprint-global-reset;
