SASS plugin for gulp.


npm install gulp-sass

Basic Usage

Something like this:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var sass = require('gulp-sass')

gulp.task('sass', function () {

Options passed as a hash into sass() will be passed along to node-sass

gulp-sass specific options

errLogToConsole: true

If you pass errLogToConsole: true into the options hash, sass errors will be logged to the console instead of generating a gutil.PluginError object. Use this option with to keep gulp from stopping every time you mess up your sass.

onSuccess: callback

Pass in your own callback to be called upon successful compilaton by node-sass. The callback has the form callback(css), and is passed the compiled css as a string. Note: This does not prevent gulp-sass's default behavior of writing the output css file.

onError: callback

Pass in your own callback to be called upon a sass error from node-sass. The callback has the form callback(err), where err is the error string generated by libsass. Note: this does prevent an actual gulpPluginError object from being created.

Source Maps

gulp-sass now generates inline source maps if you pass sourceComments: 'map' as an option. Note that gulp-sass won't actually do anything when passing sourceMap: filepath. Enjoy your source maps!

NB: For those wondering, inline source maps are stuck onto the end of the css file instead of being in a separate map file. In this case, the original source contents are included as well, so you don't have to make sure your scss files are servable.

Imports and Partials

gulp-sass now automatically passes along the directory of every scss file it parses as an include path for node-sass. This means that as long as you specify your includes relative to path of your scss file, everything will just work.
