Scout – Compass & Sass Made Easier


Scout is a free application (with Windows and Mac versions) that allows anyone to make use of Compass and Sass without the complexity of Ruby + command line.

The applicationĀ runs Sass and Compass in a self-contained Ruby environment, has support for defining multiple projects and various settings to customize the use.


Using Scout, we can define custom output folders (so that any generated CSS can be directly written into our project folders) and also set the style of the CSS (nested, compressed, etc.).

And, a logging interface displays every action performed by the app (with any errors occurred).

    Any good tutorials for learning SASS? I’m so behind the times. Or textbooks?
