Nesta and compass integration

Nesta and compass integration

Hi,

I am trying to use compass http://compass-style.org/ in a nesta project.

I have installed the gem, added to Gemfile and added the line require
'compass' in config.ru

I have also copied the sass files from an empty compass project to my
nesta views folder and compass config.rb file to my nesta main folder.

When I run my site I get the following error:

Sass::SyntaxError: File to import not found or unreadable: blueprint.
Load path: .

I know this is a problem related to compass however I am wondering if
someone has succeeded integrating nesta and compass.

Regards,
Hector Sansores

Hi, Hector,

Can you share what version of Compass you're using?

For what it's worth, I use Compass with Nesta quite a lot, but I opt
for the Compass command line interface with `compass watch` instead of
integrating with Nesta. I create a Compass project directly in my
custom nesta theme and just run the command line from the theme root.
The added benefit is I don't have to mess with Heroku's readonly file
system because I deploy my CSS statically.

Wynn,

I have used the same approach before, however since nesta solves the
readonly file  system limitation, I was looking for a tighter
integration with compass.

Abel's solution in this thread works great.

By the way, I bought your book today. I read the free chapter a week
ago and it helped me understand better the relation between sass and
compass.

I am eager to read tonight the available chapters. Keep going!

Regards,
Hector Sansores

Hi Hector,

Here's a gist that shows you a basic setup: https://gist.github.com/1027287.


Of course, it assumes you have a theme set up, and are using Graham's
NestaCMS theme. Hope this helps, and gives you some idea on how to get it to
run.

Thanks,

Abel

Abel,

I appreciate a lot your help. It worked great even though I am not
using Graham's theme.

My code had two problems, I was not using a theme and I forgot to use
the routing section in app.rb.

Following your advice and the code in your gist solved everything in a
very elegant way.

Thank you,
Hector Sansores
