I downloaded this SASS syntax highlighting files and done the four steps instructed (as a Mac user). But I don't know how to run it so that my .sass file is converted to .css

Can you suggest me anything?

I've given up on Sublime Text, everything needs to installed and configured, etc. Try using Aptana Studio3, compiling sass file is no-brainer just press crt+shift+r and it's done! – user260105 Oct 5 '13 at 14:48

You should check out Compass. Run a compass watch and never look back.

I've been using Edge with Sublime Text 2 to live edit Sass & Compass files. Check it out here

It looks like that uses Sublime's Build system to do the conversion. In Sublime, open "Tools > Build System" and choose Automatic, then try building (Cmd+B, F7, or Tools>Build.) If it still doesn't work, try changing the Build System from Automatic to SASS.

I use hammer for mac which has built in support for compiling SASS, coffeescript, HAML among others, as well as loads of other great features such as non-PHP includes, clever paths, variables etc.

Highly recommend it.

I'm not sure how different things will be on Mac, but I use Sublime Text 2 on both Windows and Linux without any issues regarding Sass. I haven't used the plugin sublime-text-haml-sass though.

I would say:

  1. Make sure Sass is installed on your system. The instructions for that plugin don't cover that. Make sure that Sass works outside Sublime. This has been a requirement for the plugins I've used for Sass processing.
  2. Select the correct Build System. For me, sometimes the Automatic option does not work. I would advise you to select it manually. The Compass and SASS Build plugins add Compass and SASS options respectively, to that Tools >> Build System menu. I would guess that sublime-text-haml-sass does the same.
  3. Remember to run the build (via Tools >> Build manually).

CodeKit works like a charm; Simply open up your Sass/HTML/JS in Sublime Text, then run CodeKit.

Drag and drop your source folder into CodeKit, hit Preview and voila – it compiles and update all changes while giving you a live preview.
