Automatically Compiling SASS in Eclipse

Automatically Compiling SASS in Eclipse

We have been working SASS for some time and used to compile it using ‘watch’ option. It is not an ideal solution to run a daemon to monitor your sass/scss files. As we are working on Eclipse, why not leverage it to automate without use of the watch 🙂

Please read requirements section below to execute the process succesfully.

Builders in Eclipse

Eclipse has an option called Builders. Right Click on your Project -> Properties

Eclipse-Builder

 

Builder provides mechanism to allow compiling the code whenever required. Now in our case it is SASS and no builder is available for it.

How to solve this?

Simple!! Add a builder for your project.

Right Click Project -> Properties -> Builder -> Click ‘New’

Add-builder

Add External Program and set the settings similar to this (bear in mind this is for Linux, as I use Linux for development)

Sass-builder

Basically it is the command used to compile the SCSS/SASS file to CSS.

sass application/scss/app.scss:css/app.css

Set it to build with other files at various build options from the “Build Options” tab in Builder Configurations popup

Sass-Auto-build-options

That’s It. You are ready to use auto compiling SASS in Eclipse environment without watch.

 

What will happen if there is an error?

Error will flash in the console like in the screenshot below

Sass-error

 

 

Set up Email Template – Outlook

Once you have received the email template from us, you can use it with outlook and start sending emails in your customized templates.

How to use my Email templates?

Stationery files first need to be stored in your Stationery folder (see below). Once you’ve done that, you can select them in the following way;

  • Outlook 2007 and previous
    Actions-> New Mail Using-> More Stationery…
  • Outlook 2010
    New Items-> E-mail Message Using-> More Stationery…

Where is it stored?
Stationery is stored in htm format in your Stationery folder. For easy access to this folder, hold the CTRL (Control) button on your keyboard while pressing the Stationery and Fonts… button in the Options dialog mentioned above. This will directly open the folder in Explorer.

Select Stationery

Stationery Folder Locations:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Stationery\
Windows Vista: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Stationery\

%username% is the login name of the system in use.

If you have any questions, you know where to reach us 🙂
