Noob question: (I don't know if this is the same for everything as it is for SASS), but after typing sass --watch sass:css it says Sass is watching for changes. Press Ctrl-C to stop., as expected, which is nice and fine, except the command line won't let me type anything after that. (I also wish to type sass --style compressed sass:css) I've tried Tab and Enter, etc., but it stays on a thick, underlined cursor similar to the one when you press Insert. I'm a total command line noob, just started using SASS today. Any help?


Have you tried:

sass --style compressed --watch sass:css


Both --style compressed and --watch are options that can be passed into sass. Depending on the program, most options that start with - or -- or / don't care about the order of the options. I expect the following to also be valid:

sass --watch --style compressed sass:css
  • That works! Thanks. :) For those reading in the future, just a small note, it should be compressed, not compress. – Jacedc May 27 '15 at 22:52

    @Jacedc Thanks, I updated my answer! You should also be able to edit your original question (which is where I copied compress from ;) ) – Darth Android May 27 '15 at 22:53
