grunt-jade-selected-compile

Compiles css files up on saving. It won't compile all jade files. If you have too many files it saves lot of time. This plugin is same as grunt-contrib-sass but you don't have to specify each and every file in Grunt.js.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install compile-selected --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('compile-selected');

The "compile_selected" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named compile_selected to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  compile_selected: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    },
  },
})

Sass task

Run this task with the grunt sass command.

This task requires you to have Ruby and Sass. If you're on OS X or Linux you probably already have Ruby installed, try ruby -v in your terminal. When you've confirmed you have Ruby installed, run gem install sass to install Sass.
