Steps to Installing Ruby Sass on Windows

Why is Ruby? 😏
Ruby is the language Sass is built on. So you need to install Ruby first and then Sass can run on it.

Steps to use Sass in simple
- Create a folder anywhere you like
- Inside that folder create two subfolders: /css and /scss
3. Create a .scss file
Go into the /scss folder and create a file called: styles.scss
Notice the file extension .scss
4. Go back to the CMD
In the CMD line 👉 go to the folder that you create in the first step.
5.Make Sass “watch” your /scss and /css folders
Type this in the CMD👉
sass --watch scss:css
The “ — watch” flag means Sass to “pay attention” to the folders /scss and /css, when you make changes to the .scss file, Sass will detect the change and compile the SCSS file into the final CSS file🤗.
6. Edit the .scss file and watch Sass compile it into a .css file
Do some changes, save changes, and watch the cmd line how to detect them and convert them to a CSS file. After the first time there automatically create a .css file inside the CSS folder.✨
Now you gain some knowledge about how to use Sass.😎
