Use this page to integrate the Compass framework with PyCharm and thus enable compilation of Sass and SCSS files from Compass-specific projects into CSS. For details, see Using File Watchers.

Prerequisites

Before you start working with Compass, make sure that the Sass support plugin is enabled. The plugin is bundled with PyCharm and is activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.

Make sure that Ruby is installed on your computer.

For more details, see Working with Sass and SCSS in Compass Projects.
