Excellent extension. This is packed full of nice options. I like where you can have the comments added to the output where the values originated from. This is really nice as I learn SASS. I am using VS2013 Update 1
It is a little buggy. After installation, Visual Studio 2012 continued to crash each time I saved changes to a SCSS file. This happened after I deleted the min CSS files ([filename].min.css) associated to each SCSS file. After deleting all the SCSS files and starting again, this time leaving the min.css files there, all seemed ok. Changing the setting in Options seemed to have no effect. Frustrating and bit of a nuisance.
I would like to see the 'exception info' on the 'Output' window rather just see like [Exception]Compass returned an error. at SassyStudio.Integration.Compass.CompassDocumentCompiler.Compile(FileInfo source, FileInfo output) at SassyStudio.Editor.GenerateCssOnSave.GenerateCss(DateTime time, String path)
Also would like to see if you can integrate LiveReload with this extension
First, let me say thanks to the creator for taking the initiative of this. I believe it's long overdue though I haven't had the experience to develop Visual Studio extensions to do something.
I'm liking the highlighting, though I would love the CSS IntelliSense for the standard CSS/CSS3 properties. In addition, as discussed in the Q&A, code formatting and things of the like would be great too.
If there was a way I would give this 3.5, but I had to round up to 4. Looking forward to more improvements, thanks again!
Importing from different folders says it cannot find file
@import "css/variables"; [works]
@import "../../Content/css/reset"; [fails]
**file to import not found or unreadable: "../../Content/css/reset"
It looks like perhaps there is a bug in libsass. Can you confirm if the resolution in this GitHub issue works for you? If that's the case, I'll file an issue in the libsass project.
What exactly do you mean by "highlight"? Right now it does not do code re-formatting (like when you hit ctrl+k, d), but you should have syntax highlighting.
If you don't have syntax highlighting, then it's likely that the colors aren't configured, which you can do by going to tools -> options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors, then you can modify the colors by scrolling down to where the color items begin with SCSS
Yes, it will hopefully soon. With the latest version there's a new parsing engine that should be extensible enough to support .sass files, but perhaps in the interim i'll just use the old system (regex based) to add highlighting only in .sass files.
Any idea on when/if support for the more css base part of highlighting would be available? Right now if I'm mostly doing css stuff rather than imports etc, it's all grey. I would argue that's more important than being able to highlight the imports etc
@Max Korp - I'll look into adding that tonight. It should be extremely simple to do with the new parsing engine, but I just need to look at what the current CSS editor provides (which I believe is just highlighting for property name).
